    It has the same end caps as the Connected version. Boo!

    They need to find a way to improve on that!

    Just quick comparison. Reuse of the module from Connected 45 is obvious.

    although tempting, not sure if i can justify 1 year old tech.. not even the 41mm upgrades in this.

    Ricardo Guadalupe from Hublot said on ntv that this will be the only Smartwatch from the brand. They won't really enter this market. But they just wanted to create a Collector's piece. :)

    Yes, I am aware of that. What I meant is to improve on the design by changing or eliminating the "caps" for future watches; including the next TAG Heuer Connected.

    Yes, I think so, too. The caps are very salient.

    Well... The wing of the original Connected was a necessity to hide the screen drivers. It's either that, or a Motorola-style flat tire or a very thick bezel. Some designs, like latest Fossils and the LG Watch Style opt for a small black bezel around the screen to hide partially the drivers there and partially under the physical bezel. For the second generation Connected TAG Heuer obviously used these wings to also create space for the latches of the modular system. That's why they are flat and prominent on the smartwatch modules and inclined and less sticking out on the mechanical ones . I think it will be hard to find space for both drivers and latches without them.
