Tag Heuer connected 2020 review the luxury smart health connected watch with the Swiss watchmaking tradition and its excellent sports monitoring.
Tag Heuer connected 2020: the sport and luxury smart health connected watch
Tag Heuer has just presented its new smart health watch using Wear Os, the third generation of Tag Heuer smart health connected. An announcement by the Swiss brand that occurs at the same time as the German Montblanc with its Summit 2+.
Tag Heuer launched its first smart health connected watch in 2015, followed by the smart health connected Modular 45 in 2017. Then in 2018, Tag launched the smart health connected Modular 41, which takes the characteristics of the 45 and integrates them into a smaller case. In 2019, the Tag Heuer smart health connected Modular 45 Golf Edition was put into service for 18-hole enthusiasts.
This fourth model of the Swiss watchmaker therefore benefits from a fine heritage and clearly draws on the activity tracking advantages of the Modular Golf Edition.

Design Tag Heuer connected 2020
As it is indeed a Tag, you benefit from excellent manufacturing quality and numerous customization options.
The 45 mm cases are made of stainless steel or titanium and are clearly inspired by the Carrera mechanical chronographs by Tag Heuer. Thus, the buttons resemble the chronograph pushers mounted on either side of the rotating central crown. The bezel is made of ceramic.
The touch screen OLED is of 1.39 inch, with a definition 454 x 454 pixels for a resolution of 326 ppi. It is protected by a sapphire crystal giving a finer appearance to the watch.
Personalization of faces and bracelets
The watch allows you to change your face (this is the first time I do it) thanks to the 5 digital dials directly inspired by analog watches. So the dial options include.
- A three-hand version of the skeletonised movement from the Heuer 02 manufacture,
- Carrera Heuer 01 digitized,
- A display similar to that of liquid crystals,
- A unique neural network animation based on an algorithm and called orbital,
- and a tribute to the hexagonal nanotube structure of the brand’s carbon composite spring.
In terms of physical customization, you can change the bracelets. With a choice of durable rubber bracelets available in a classic black scale pattern with red stitching, bolder perforations in red, orange or khaki. There are also steel and black options.
Features Tag Heuer smart health connected 3 2020
The new Tag Heuer smart health connected 2020 abandons the Intel chip to move to that of Qualcomm. She now ships the Snapdragon 3100 which is the latest generation for watches with Wear Os.
- Wifi connection, Bluetooth 4.1
- GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS,
- Compass, accelerometer
- Heart rate monitoring
- 5 ATM water resistance
- 430mAh battery
The smart health connected 3 is powered by a 430mAh battery. The autonomy is therefore similar with a maximum of 20 hours in standard use. But it only takes 4 hours with the GPS on to track your sports activities.
To extend the life of the battery, the screen switches from active to ambient mode, the latter dimming the face to show only the time. Having this device on my Montblanc, I admit that at least, even if the watch is no longer smart health connected, it continues to tell the time. But, seriously at this price, autonomy should be several days.
The good news is that the full recharge takes 1 hour 30 minutes.
Tag Heuer smart health connected Features
The watch takes advantage of the Wear Os apps, but adds more upscale sports activity tracking, in line with the target clientele.
- Music control,
