TAG Heuer and Porsche have launched the new TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 – Porsche Edition, a luxury connected timepiece inspired by the design of the iconic all-electric Porsche Taycan collection, with exclusive Wear OS features for Porsche owners where information from their car is displayed directly on the watch face.
The watch follows the launch of the TAG Heuer x Porsche Carrera Chronograph, which celebrated the two companies’ rich history of motor racing heritage and the launch of a global partnership in 2021.
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 that connects TAG Heuer watches and Porsche cars with a feeling of technology and speed.
The watch also offers complications that 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 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 titanium case back is engraved with ‘TAG Heuer x Porsche’ around the LED heart rate sensor used for the watch’s fitness features.
The watch’s strap is built to evoke the iconic design used in the interior of the Porsche cars.
Designed in carbon-like black calf skin with blue stitching, it echoes the leather finishing inside the car in both color 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.
