TAG Heuer's $1,500 luxury smartwatch isn't so special

Tech Industry
Android Wear watches are getting a high fashion makeover. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET update. [MUSIC] Luxury Watchmaker TAG Heuer just released the first luxury Android powered smart watch. It's the TAG Heuer Connected, and as you might expect it comes at a luxurious price, $1500. Tag worked with Intel on the processor inside. So it's not a purely Swiss made watch, of course. But with the price, you're getting a watch that does pretty much what other Android watches can do. There's four gigs of storage, an accelerometer to track steps, WiFi to keep you connected when the phone is far. It's made of titanium so it feels premium. There's a scratch resistant Sapphire crystal touch screen, which the cheaper Huawei watch also has. The battery life will get you about a day of use, and well, really you're paying for the name. It doesn't have a GPS, there's no NFC for mobile payments, But there is one unique perk, if you can call it that. After the two-year warranty is up, you can pay another $1500 to trade in your watch for a normal, mechanical watch. At least that one should last you longer. It's available now online in the U.S. and in Japan next week. Other countries in Europe and Asia are gonna be able to by it by the end of the month. If you're looking for Android smartwatches made by watch brands, later this year, Fossil is gonna release the Fossil Q Founder. Which also runs Android Wear and it's powered by Intel processor, it will cost $275. And in other news about expensive gadgets, Apple's iPad Pro is gonna go on sale Wednesday in [UNKNOWN] stores later this week. Apple first showed off the new large tablet in September Its nearly 13 inch screen will support Apple's Pencil pressure sensitive stylus. And Apple also made an attachable smart keyboard for it, both are sold separately. The iPad Pro starts at $800 but if you also buy the pencil and the keyboard You can add another $270 to the price tag. You know, 2015 is turning out to be a strange year for consumer gadgets. We have super expensive smart watches, and Apple's making tablets with styluses, and BlackBerry is now making Android phones. If you haven't already heard, the brand new Blackberry Priv smartphone is actually an android phone, with a physical keyboard. You just slide up the 5.5 inch screen to reveal four rows of backlit keys. The Priv packs in more privacy and security features than other android phones. It's $700 when you buy it unlocked. But AT&T is now selling it for $250 on the contract, and Verizon says it'll also carry the phone soon. That's it for this Tech News Update, and there's more at cnet.com. From our studios in New york, I'm Bridget Carey. [SOUND]
