We have the pleasure to announce you that the Wear OS 2.0 is now available for your TAG Heuer Connected Watch.
The new release of Wear OS 2.0 features an enhanced navigation, access to the latest exclusive TAG Heuer developments as well as a direct access to the Google Play Store. iPhone users will now have possibilities to download all different apps that can be used on the TAG Heuer Connected. Find more below.
To update your TAG Heuer Connected with the latest Wear OS operating system, please:
- Make sure your phone has Wi-Fi or internet connectivity
- Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your phone
- Make sure your watch is paired with your phone - if you’re within Bluetooth range and see a broken cloud icon on your watch face, your watch and phone are not currently connected
- Make sure your phone has at least 80% battery power
- Place your watch on the cradle to charge it - it will automatically begin searching for a new update
If there’s an update available, a notification will appear on your watch face. Follow the instructions to install the update.
While traditional watches tell the time, Wear OS watches make the most of your time. In an instant, you can check when and where you’re meeting a friend, whether you’ll need an umbrella tonight, or how many minutes you’ve been active today—all without reaching for your phone. With Wear OS 2.0 you’ll get more informative watch faces, better workouts, new ways to use apps, more ways to stay in touch and on-the-go help from the Google Assistant.
More personalized, helpful watch faces
You can now personalize your Wear OS always-on watch face with information and actions from your favorite apps. Simply glance at your wrist to check your next appointment, stock performance, progress on fitness goals, or whatever is important to you. A quick tap on your watch face lets you instantly order an Uber ride, start a workout, or get in touch with your significant other. Interested in different info throughout the day? Just swipe to switch your watch face as you go from the office to the gym to dinner with friends and home again.
Better ways to work out
Google Fit, the pre-installed fitness app on most Wear OS watches, now lets you track your pace, distance, calories burned as you’re walking, running or cycling. You can also measure weight-lifting reps, in addition to push-ups, sit-ups and squats. When you work out with a cellular-connected Wear OS watch, you can stay in touch with calls and messages, stream tunes from Google Play Music and still use your favorite apps right on your watch.
New ways to use apps
With Wear OS 2.0, you can choose which apps you want on your watch and download them directly from the new on-watch Google Play Store. If your watch has a cellular connection, you can make calls and use your watch apps no matter where your phone is. Whether you use an Android phone or iPhone, you’ll be able to use apps built for Wear OS 2.0, like AccuWeather, Android Pay, Bring!, Foursquare, Google Fit, Google Messenger, Google Play Music, Lifesum, Robinhood, Runkeeper, Runtastic, Strava, Telegram, Uber and many more.
More ways to respond to messages
Now it’s easier than ever to read and respond to a message right from your watch. When you receive a message, you can expand the notification and tap to respond by dictating, typing or handwriting your answer, or drawing an emoji. Try it out on apps like Facebook Messenger, Glide, Google Messenger, Hangouts, Telegram or WhatsApp. Need to respond quickly and discreetly? Use Smart Reply, which instantly and intelligently suggests different responses based on the message you received.
The Google Assistant on your wrist
Wear OS 2.0 brings the Google Assistant to your wrist, so you can find answers and get things done—hands free. Ask your Google Assistant about the weather or remind yourself to bring an umbrella. Make a restaurant reservation or navigate to work. You can even update your shopping list right from your wrist. To ask for help, just hold down the power button on your watch or say “Ok Google." The Google Assistant is available in English and German on Wear OS and will be available in other languages in the coming months.
