When the topic of convergence devices pops up, most people think about mobile devices that play video, take pictures, access the internet, and so on. Tag Heuer is tackling the convergence game in a slightly different way by offering a product that looks like what they do best — wristwatches — but is in fact a full-fledged cell phone. And we’ve got the first pics.
We heard that Tag Heuer was making a cell phone a couple of weeks ago, but what we didn’t know was that it was going to be more like a watch than a conventional handset. That might still change, of course, but if you’re going to wear a watch anyways (I never leave the house without mine), you might as well combine it with something you always carry with you anyways (your cell phone).
Tag Heuer teamed up with custom phonemaker ModeLabs for this creation, which I would assume has Bluetooth connectivity, unless you want to talk into your wrist. Based on the pictures provided, the display will be a color LCD (?) with virtual clock hands and such. What’s more, you’ll notice that at the top of the watch, it reads “MP3”, indicating that this will also double (triple?) as a mobile music machine. Stay tuned for more as it develops.
