If you were jealous of Porsche owners before, the auto marque has teamed up with Tag Heuer to create a special edition Connect Watch.
The TAag Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition, a luxury connected timepiece inspired by the design of the iconic all-electric Porsche Taycan collection, offers a striking frozen blue look inspired by the Taycan and advanced controls for Porsche owners.
Following the success of the Tag Heuer x Porsche Carrera Chronograph, the new watch boasts exclusive Wear OS features for Porsche owners, where information from their cars is displayed directly on the watch’s face.
The TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition is a 45-mm watch with a ceramic bezel which gives it the feel of a traditional high-end timepiece. The crown has a large diameter and stands out from the watch, so there’s lots of room for a finger to access the crown, making it easy to navigate apps on the go. The pushers have a mechanical feel, highlighting TAG Heuer’s 162 years of heritage in making high-end watches.
Both the physical watch and the software have design features in the same shade of frozen blue used in the iconic electric Taycan, which evokes the car’s exterior. Wearers of the Tag Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition will have access to an exclusive watch face, available only to owners of the special Porsche smartwatch.
The watch face was inspired by printed circuit boards and racing circuits, offering an animated visual effect which connects Tag Heuer watches and Porsche cars with a feeling of technology and speed. The watch also offers complications which display information from compatible Porsche models directly on the watch face, such as car battery percentage and total mileage.
The watch’s design is filled with numerous features which evoke Porsche’s blue Taycan, with a large 45-mm case in black titanium, highlighted with details in the distinctive frozen blue metallic shade seen on the car.
The case is sandblasted black titanium, giving the watch a light, sporty feel and the black ceramic polished bezel has a dedicated scale going from zero to 400, referencing the Porsche car’s speed, which can be used to read functions relating to the car or to display metrics like heart rate. The watch’s titanium case back is engraved with ‘TAG Heuer x Porsche’ around the LED heart rate sensor used for the watch’s fitness features.
The black steel crown, surrounded with black rubber, is highlighted with the Tag Heuer shield in frozen blue lacquer, and the pushers also carry the same iconic blue shade. At the bottom of the bezel, the word Porsche is highlighted in frozen blue, as is the ‘100’ at the top.
The watch’s strap is built to evoke the iconic design used in the interior of the Porsche cars. Designed in carbon-like black calfskin with blue stitching, it echoes the leather finishing inside the car in both colour and structure. The watch’s strap has a rubber base for a comfortable and sporty wear. As with all Tag Heuer Connected watches, the strap is interchangeable, with a spare black rubber version inside the box.
Running a customized version of Google’s Wear OS system, the watch offers a range of exclusive timers and sport and wellness apps. It also has a cutting-edge range of fitness features, including guided workouts built into the Tag Heuer Sport app on the watch.
The watch shows off technical improvements across the board compared to the previous generations of TAG Heuer Connected watches, with a brighter screen, better contrast, and a battery life 30% longer than previous models. Users will enjoy a full day’s battery life from each charge with moderate use. Transferring data from and to the watch via a paired iOS or Android app is also faster, thanks to Bluetooth 5.0.
Compatible Porsche models include the Panamera (G2 II models from 2022 onwards), Panamera (G2), 911 (992 models from 2022 onwards), 911, Cayenne (E3 models from 2022 onwards), Cayenne (E2 II), 718, Macan II/ III, Macan, Taycan.
