The Good The TAG Heuer Connected has striking, aggressive looks, it's made from luxury materials and the fashionable name of its maker will appeal to those of you looking for the finer things in life.

The Bad It's extremely expensive yet functionally offers nothing that you won't find on Android Wear watches that cost a fraction of the price.

The Bottom Line The TAG Heuer Connected is the most fashionable way of adding smart functions to your wrist. But it'll cost you a hell of a lot for privilege.

So you want a smartwatch, but you don't want a tech brand name like LG or Samsung clashing with your fancy suit? Cast your eyes, then, over the TAG Heuer Connected.

The Connected's chunky, angular titanium body and thick rubber strap gives the watch a striking look I'm very keen on. It's certainly more aggressive-looking than the sleek simplicity of the Apple Watch -- in fact with a range of great-looking TAG Heuer watch faces to choose from (styled after the company's analogue watches), you might not think it's a smartwatch at all. It's a big guy, though, so those of you with more dainty wrists will want to try before you buy.

Running the same Android Wear software as the LG G Watch or Moto 360, it connects to your phone (either Android or iPhone) and shows incoming notifications, steps taken and a wide variety of other information from. There are about 8,000 apps that work with Android Wear watches now, but they all essentially function as a second screen for your phone.
