Tag Heuer to increase its wearable technology production

The designer company will now be producing 1,200 to 2,000 of its Carrera Connected per week.

As Tag Heuer faces a rising demand for its wearable technology from retailers, the designer brand has chosen to boost the production of its Carrera Connected smartwatch device by a considerable amount.

The Swiss watchmaker will now be increasing the rate of wearables production to 1,200 to 2,000 weekly units.

This wearable technology is designed to be a highly attractive and very chic version of an Android Wear smartwatch. According to the CEO of the company, Jean Claude Biver, Tag Heuer will also be stopping all its online sales of this device until around May or June 2016 in order to give the company the opportunity to catch up with the tremendous demand from retailers selling in-store.

This device represents the first entry of a luxury watch manufacturer into wearable technology.

Wearable Technology - Tag HeuerBiver brought Tag Heuer into this category with a massive amount of popularity, at just the time when people were starting to have genuine doubts as to whether or not there would ever be a luxury smartwatch based on the Android Wear operating system.

Among the features that make the Carrera wearables stand out in this category include the titanium construction, as well as the trans-reflective display. The appearance of the device is quite chic, with an elegance that takes it a full step above most of the other smartwatches that are currently available.

Biver has since stated that Tag Heuer intends to continue producing Connected wearable technology devices and that new models will likely become available as soon as late 2016 or early 2017. This, in response to the large and growing interest that consumers have already shown in high end smartwatches. Many have speculated that the next models of the devices that the designer will issue will probably feature gold components as well as the possibility of the inclusion of diamonds.

According to Biver, “Considering the success of this single and unique watch, we will develop a collection made out of different varieties, executions and materials at the end of next year or beginning of 2017.”

Next smartwatch from Samsung now for sale in the US

The Gear S2 wearable technology devices have now been released onto American store shelves.

After the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch received a fantastic response from consumers within its own home marketplace in South Korea, the device has now traveled to the other side of the world where it has been released to shoppers in the United States.

There are two different models of the Gear S2 wearables that are being released for U.S. consumers.

The two models of the smartwatch that have been rolled out in the U.S. are the Gear S2 and the Gear S2 Classic. Both of those devices run on the Tizen operating system, which belongs to Samsung. The device, itself, features a 1.2 inch round Super AMOLED screen. It has a rotating bezel, a 360 x 360 pixel resolution. The predictions are that it will be the Samsung Gear S2 3G model. That gadget can be paired with all Galaxy devices, as well as any smartphones that aren’t made by Samsung but that are running on Android 4.4 or later and that have a minimum of 1.5 GB of RAM.

There are about 18 pre-installed apps currently added to the Gear S2 smartwatch, among which 12 are permanent.

Other applications in the Samsung Gear S2 include the “buddy”, which makes it possible to automatically favorite your contacts, as well as the “looking for my device,” which makes it possible to find out where connected devices are located, in addition to the “Syrup Wallet”, which is a mobile payments application through membership-based services.

When the Gear S2 was first launched for preorder in South Korea, it managed to sell out in a matter of two hours. Now the wearables are available to consumers in the United States and some are predicting that this will seriously cut into the market that had previously been led by Apple. In fact, there have been predictions that this could go so far as to take down the power of the Apple Watch.

The smartwatches are available starting at $299.99 and for as much as $349.99.
