Tag Heuer

Swiss watch maker Tag Heuer has just announced a partnership with Google and Intel to bring a new luxury Android Wear smartwatch to the market. It is said that this wearable will take on the recently unveiled Apple Watch, which is expected to be one of the most talked about luxury smartwatches in the market.

The companies are yet to give away launch details of the smartwatch, so it will be interesting to see what this partnership holds in store for fans of the Android Wear platform. Google’s wearable OS currently utilizes Qualcomm SoCs, so this also implies that there could be Intel silicon used in future iterations.

The quality of Swiss watches is renowned worldwide. When this is allied with the creative technology and global power of two companies like Intel and Google, using the Android Wear platform and based on Intel technology, we can see the launch of a technological revolution in our industry, of which I am proud to be a pioneer today with TAG Heuer,” said Guy Sémon, General Manager of TAG Heuer.
