    150,000 would be remarkable given that TAG Heuer's total volume a couple of years ago was estimated at 750,000

    Yes, I also think that is way too aggressive. That said, with such high expectations, the new watches have to be great, so let's wait and see. :)

    I need something with built in GPS...I love my Fenix 3, may upgrade to Fenix 5.....but if Tag came out with something comparable in features I would consider.

    For me the fenix blows away the tag and apple, much more useful, much better battery life. Looking forward to seeing what the new connected is like thou

    It's the swapping of the digital module for mechanical watch head I was referring to a while back as being the real game changer

    Yes, exactly like we discussed back in early 2015 before the 1st Connected was revealed.

    It takes the current idea of swapping after two years to the next level- a mechanical watch and when you need or want the smart watch, you just swap watch heads! Brilliant

    Absolutely. This opens up everything for customization. People swapping and trading components based on trends and evolving tastes. TAG Heuer will need to up their game on accessories and custom-made components.

    I might be being a bit thick here. What exactly are you swapping? It sounds like you just using the strap on different watches with lugs to purchase to match the strap. Wouldn't the the hardware of the smart watch still get outdated in two years or so?

    What I imagine is something like the Mikrograph

    Well can't say it's option that appeals to me. If I'd rather wear a mechanical one day then I'd put on a mechanical.

    I suppose if the mechanical piece is priced much less than a full watch then it could be interesting, otherwise, finding a piece inc strap etc on sale or used would be similarly priced.

    For me, what I want to know is some tech specs.
    Is the screen improved, 240ppi just isn't up to scratch.
    Is wifi built in to make use of android 2.0.
    Is there a heart rate monitor to make use of the fitness apps.

    Smart watches have not left the TOY WATCH realm in my opinion. There's nothing appealing about a made in china smart watch that you have to charge every night that does less of what your cell phone does.
