The Golf app’s new Driving Zone feature links to the user’s smartphone to show the best part of the course to target based on past rounds. Each previous tee shot will be overlaid onto a map, helping the player to hone their swing. The company says the app features 40,000 maps — 99 percent of the golf courses in the world. The app isn’t exclusive to TAG Heuer’s watches though — it’s available for other Wear OS watches and the Apple Watch.
It’s not clear how much the Connected Golf Edition will cost, but last year’s model was priced at $1,850. It will be available June 4th at select retailers, TAG Heuer boutiques and the company’s website. Last year’s Golf Edition was well received by players, so hopefully the updates that came with the company’s third-generation Connected watches will improve a niche — but useful — gadget.
