The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 is a fine example of Swiss timepiece meets smartwatch. This wearable technology is respected by watch lovers and tech geeks, alike. This is the second iteration of the TAG Heuer Carrera with a few key upgrades. In addition to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, it now has GPS and NFC. The Connected wears very large on the wrist, therefore isn’t well-suited for smaller wrists. However, the titanium body keeps it light and comfortable to wear.

The real appeal, besides the technical precision and smartwatch functionality, is that the Connected can be personalized with modular components using any of the 500 possible combinations that are available. Which bright color is your preference?

Thank goodness for Spring and thank luxury watch brands for helping to make life even brighter with bold and brilliant-colored watches to adorn the wrist.
