Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45
This is not just a smartwatch but also, as the name suggests, modular. Yes, the watch hosts both digital and mechanical modules that attach to the watch’s lugs (available in rose gold, titanium or ceramic), so you can switch from one to the other. Both modules are the same size, 45 mm. The touchscreen is sapphire crystal, and the watch is powered by an Intel Atom processor Z34XX series and operates on Android Wear 2.0.
Price: Starting from $1,650
