Tag Heuer has teamed up with Google and Intel to develop its new smartwatch, suggesting that it could be powered by Android Wear

CEO Jean-Claude Biver has confirmed that the high-end wearable device will have functionality similar to the Apple Watch, he stressed that they are not competing with the Cupertino-based company as Carrera Connected is an exclusive, luxury watch targeted at a more high-end clientele. 
"We are not Apple. We are a watch brand. I forbid my colleagues to say Apple is our competitor," he said.
Like most smartwatches, the titanium Carrera Connected will also wirelessly connect with your mobile phone to offer a range of features. Although Biver didn't provide much detail on the watch's functionality, he did say that it can do much more than just counting your steps or taking your pulse, and the appearance of its face is also modifiable.

The smartwatch, which is developed in association with Google and Intel, will be available in-stores in New York at noon (1700 GMT) today - nearly 1,000 units will be on offer. It will land in Europe three days later.

It's the marriage of knowledge, the marriage of research and development, said Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of TAG Heuer at a press conference in New York City. 
"For TAG Heuer this is a milestone for our brand but also a milestone for the Swiss watch industry."
It is the first watch to feature an Intel processor. The watch is equipped with a 1.6 GHz dual-core Intel Atom processor with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of storage. The memory is double the amount featured in other Android Wear watches. Other sensors include an accelerometer for tracking your steps throughout the day and Wi-Fi for some phone-less features.

The Connected Watch is made from grade 2 titanium, which gives it a premium feel. The 46mm display has a 360x360-pixel resolution that is protected with sapphire crystal, which should make it a lot more difficult to scratch. 

The watch band will be available in seven colors -- green, blue, orange, red, white, black and yellow -- and is made from vulcanized rubber with grade 2 titanium folding clasp. 

The watch will also come with a selection of six brightly colors wristbands to choose from.
