    If this latest intel from Bloomberg is true, then we don't know what sort of sorcery the Swiss watch maker TAG Heuer has up their sleeve, but we can't wait to see it. Just as reported previously, the famous premium luxury watch-maker is developing an Android Wear smartwatch. Bloomberg's latest report shares a few interesting details about the device.

    According to their sources, the TAG Heuer Android Wear smartwatch watch will include a battery that is good for a 40 hour charge. That would be considerably longer than the usual Android Wear devices we have seen so far.

    That isn't the only detail revealed in their report. We also now have word that the TAG Heuer smartwatch will likely retail for a truly premium $1,400.00 USD, and will be available for purchase in October or November. How many of our members would be tempted to grab a TAG Heuer Android Wear smartwatch?

    Looks awesome, but I agree with whoever said it in another thread...It's outrageous to think that this is a good investment with how quickly the internals of these kinds of devices become outdated. Unless they plan to produce a "snap-in" replacement that fits in this band/bezel setup every year or 2, I don't see this idea taking off.

    "Some people are stupid rich." So a certain small group probably won't care.

    Well, TAG is a nice timepiece. From that perspective, I'm nor sure out-dated internals is really a concern, because that's not really an every day watch, anyway. For business, perhaps you'd wear it daily. For that price, I'd rather have a real crystal face than an LCD....would have to comapre side-by-side to see if you can tell a difference.

    Those do look good, but to me the biggest selling point for a smartwatch is for fitness...but at $1400 I'm not wearing that to the gym!

    But I still don't get smart watches. The gym is about the only place I can think of where I'd prefer to interact with the watch over my smartphone (because I'd want to leave the phone at home). Everywhere else my phone goes on the desk/console/table as soon a I sit down.

    It takes a bit of time for old muscle memory(reaching for phone) to be replaced by new muscle memory (reaching for watch). The old never really goes away, just you develop new. Sort of like switching from regular squats to Sumo squats.
    As far as the watch in the op, too blingy for my jeans and t shirt lifestyle. Maybe bury me in it cuz that'll probably be the next time I wear a suit. Battery life won't matter then either.

    I agree as well. I don't think I would invest $1400. in a device that will most likely be outdated in 6 months.

    These watches are not targeted at the average person. They are targeted at Tag buyers. They will sell very well.

    Agree. People will buy them not thinking about obsolescence.
