The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 Golf Edition digital wristwatch is a first foray into the GPS watch market from one of the world’s leading watchmaker.
Swiss manufacturer TAG Heuer are known for quality and style and that is present in their first golf GPS watch as they look to take on the likes of Garmin and Bushnell in the sector.
The Connected Modular 45 range has been around for a while, but the new Golf Edition is now available and it comes with an accompanying smartphone app that is seriously impressive.
From distances to targets on the course, to score tracking and shot measuring, the Connected Modular watch can provide you with a serious amount of data at the touch of a button.
What TAG Heuer say about the Connected Modular 45 Golf Edition watch:
“No need to look for your phone in your bag anymore. With TAG Heuer Golf on your connected watch, a simple glance at your wrist is enough to know the distance to the green, know the score or track your shot distances.
“Amazing 3D renderings thanks to TAG Heuer Golf technology. Analyze the course, evaluate the landscape and track your progress with high-contrast and clearly visible graphics. Even in bright sunlight.
“TAG Heuer Golf also displays Satellite views of 39,000 thousand courses around the world. Switch between our 3D mappings and the Satellite view to have the most complete course visualisation.
“Greens, bunkers, water hazards, trees: TAG Heuer Golf measures the distance to all the hazards on the golf course. Pick the right club to use.
“Measure your shot distances with an amazing accuracy, then review your average distance with each club and evaluate the accuracy of your drives.
TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 Golf Edition Watch
The Connected Modular watch boasts a touchscreen of 45mm in size and has data for more than 39,000 worldwide golf courses pre-loaded.
You get all of the key information to make an informed decision on the golf course, as well as a handy graphic of the hole too – something not readily available in all GPS watches.
The watch is made from shock-resistant materials, features a black ceramic bezel ring with 18 numbers engraved to signify the 18 holes of a golf round.
The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 can be connected to an accompanying smartphone app to analyse data. You can also use the app to view enhanced graphics while on the course using a bigger screen size.
The app is free to download and provides a 3D view of the course you are playing, compared to the 2D graphics displayed on the watch face.
The app is also set up to be used in conjunction with other TAG Heuer Connected Modular watches and not just the dedicated golf edition.
The watch comes with the promise of a 25-hour battery life, around six rounds of golf without charge, and has 4gb of storage. You can also send and receive messages and can play music if you wish.
Connected Modular 45 Golf Edition Verdict
The TAG Heuer golf watch will set you back a fair sum compared to most other distance measuring devices available.
But you are buying style, class and something special in terms of the data provided if you do opt to splash out on this fine product from arguably the world’s finest watchmaker.
It might have been created exclusively for golfers, but you will look equally good wearing this off the course as you will using it while playing a round.
