Tag Heuer Connected Modular 41 Smartwatch Announced

Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer has announced the TAG Heuer Connected Module 41, a smaller version of the Connected Module 45 which launched in Q1 of past year.

Like its predecessor, the Android Wear timepiece is very customizable. In a press release issued yesterday, TAG Heuer has announced its successor: the Connected Modular 41.

The watch face on the Connected Modular 41 is 41mm in diameter which is smaller than the 45mm diameter of its predecessor. But dimensions aren't the only changes in store: the Connected Modular 41 is both significantly less expensive and more powerful than the previous device too. The company has now chose to support the smaller among us with a new Connected Modular 41, with - you guessed it - a watch with a 41mm diameter for those with more diminutive extremities.

The wearable includes the luxurious build-quality you might expect from the TAG Heuer name, but it's essentially the same as its predecessor in terms of out-of-the-box design. The Modular 41 comes in seven base options including new white, blue and pink leather strap options and you can even replace the main Connected unit with a Calibre 5 mechanical module, which may look a bit better at more formal events. The brightness of the 390 x 390, 326 ppi AMOLED display has been bumped up to a maximum of 350 nits.

As far as OS is concerned, it is running Android Wear, however, the company hasn't specified which version though.
