TAG Heuer Connected Sports Applications - Precise data to achieve every goal

It’s now easier than ever to keep track of your fitness routine on the TAG Heuer Connected, with the TAG Heuer Sports app now delivering guided workout routines, as well as its industry- leading fitness information and sports tracking. 

TAG Heuer Connected Sports Applications

Over the past years, TAG Heuer’s sports application has been revamped to allow users to keep track of running (indoor and outdoor), cycling, swimming, golf and walking performance.

Wearers can make every day a new performance with the TAG Heuer companion application. They can track their activities directly through the watch with key metrics such as speed, pace, distance, heart rate and splits displayed in real time in the Sports app and as an overview in the TAG Heuer Sports tiles. They can then gain detailed insights into their performance through the TAG Heuer mobile application, and even synchronise their data with Apple Health or Strava.

When performance is the name of the game, keeping an eye on data is the way to go. Whether you need to track your speed, pace, distance, heart rate, and splits in real time, get detailed performance insights that are more accurate than ever. TAG Heuer offers sports apps like Running, Cycling, Walking, Indoor Running, Swimming and Fitness.

Swimming - Connected in the pool

It is now possible for pool swimmers to measure and record their performance in the pool using their TAG Heuer Connected. On the watch’s touchscreen dial, the swimmer can see metrics for the number of laps completed, total distance and interval breakdowns. On their smartphone, they can explore additional detailed information such as calories burned, analysis of strokes and pace, and a summary of the entire session.

The most sophisticated data the app can provide swimmers with their SWOLF score. This complex metric and important performance indicator is calculated by adding the seconds and strokes taken to swim 25 or 50 metres. It shows the swimmer their lap efficiency and gives them a strategic benchmark that they can use to continuously improve. The lower the score, the better the pool session.

The Swimming app also offers automatic lap detection, using the watch’s accelerometer and gyroscope with a dedicated algorithm to detect the start and finish of each lap, in order to measure the full distance of the session. While swimming, the always-on screen will display the elapsed time, number of laps completed, total distance and interval breakdowns.

And for an even smoother and more refined experience, TAG Heuer has developed a custom algorithm to detect the swim type per lap. The watch can identify four different types of strokes and styles – freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly – and the swim type per interval will be available in the detailed breakdown of the swimmer’s session on their mobile device.
And for swimmers looking for advanced insights into their performance, the TAG Heuer Connected will also monitor the pace, strokes and intervals of each session.
The “pace” is a measurement of the time taken to swim a set distance of 100 metres. The pace graph on the app shows the evolution of this indicator.

The “stroke” metric counts each arm’s swim cycle using the gyroscope of the watch and, thanks to a dedicated algorithm, it can also display the number of strokes per lap. This feature provides valuable feedback on each lap so the swimmer can keep track of and improve their performance during the session.
Finally, the “intervals” feature is very useful to users who mix different activities during their session or wish to break it up into increments or repetitions, so an interval will automatically be created when the swimmer resumes the session from a break.

Though the OLED touchscreen does not work under water, the swimmer can set the mechanical pushers to start, stop or pause and resume their session in and out of the pool. The TAG Heuer Connected is water-resistant to 50 metres/5 ATM, so it is suitable for shallow-water activities in the pool, but it should not be worn for activities such as diving or waterskiing. The TAG Heuer Connected should always be rinsed in fresh water and dried after use.

Indoor Running

Complementing the swimming experience, TAG Heuer is also bringing fresh updates to its existing Running app, with exciting features for indoor running activities.
This version will allow indoor runners to see at a glance which heart rate zone they are in. Then, at the end of their session, they can input the total distance recorded by the treadmill into the watch, which will automatically calculate the pace of the session.

Another novelty included in this update is a dedicated heart rate screen, designed and developed in- house for users who want to focus primarily on their heart rate during a sports activity. Just by checking their watch, they can see their heart rate zone and percentage of maximum heart rate. The five zone levels go from warm-up (zone 1) to peak (zone 5) and runners can use these levels to modulate the intensity of their training depending on their personal cardiovascular fitness goals.
The mobile device app will also provide a full analysis post-run, with a colour-coded heart rate graph and the time spent in each zone. Beyond running, the heart rate tracker can be used for all types of cardio exercise, indoors and outdoors.

Fitness - Playful and short 7-minutes workouts

Start new routines and exercise with our virtual coach and his 7 minutes programs. Choose between full-body, core, upper and lower workouts or mix them.

This feature is built for on-the-go users to stay fit (without having to keep a smartphone nearby). These workouts consist of programs of exercises with pre-set lengths.
On-screen prompts guide users through exercises (users can choose upper body workout, lower body workout or full workout) with animations on screen, and no need for a phone or TV. When users finish their exercise, the watch vibrates to indicate that it is time to move on to the next one.

For users who already have their own routine (or their own fitness coach), it’s simple to customise: users type in their own routine and it appears on the screen, instructing them to do the first exercise, then the next. TAG Heuer’s sports app is available on both the 45mm model and 42mm model, as well as the previous generation of Connected watches.
