TAG Heuer Tees-Off With Upgraded Connected Golf Edition Smartwatch

The Connected Calibre E4 Golf Edition offers a redesigned interface, making user control of its golfing functions easier, including high resolution 2D maps of more than 40,000 golf courses around the world showing hazards and distances.

Other new features include a built-in shot-tracker that automatically activates when it detects a swing from the tee and collates collected data to generate shot ‘heat maps’, club recommendations and even generate 3D animations of your best shots.

The 45mm watch’s redesigned buckle also features a magnetic ball marker that slides out, allowing players to mark their positions on the green when putting. The watch is secured on a dimpled white rubber strap and supplied with a second black strap. TAG Heuer has also improved battery life by 30% on the previous generation.

“Our customers play golf more than any other sport,” says Frederic Arnault, CEO of TAG Heuer. “Golf has become an important pillar of the Connected watch: the new Calibre E4 is built to be a watch that wearers don’t take off when they leave the golf course.” 

Golfers will be able to review their round at the 19th hole in 3D via a companion app, offering a “dramatic visualisation of the details stored by the watches.”

The Connected Calibre E4 Golf Edition drops in April. Head over to TAG Heuer for more information.
