Super Mario and Tag Heuer Collaboration is $ 2,150 Wear OS Watch – .


A few days ago, Tag Heuer released a teaser for a Super Mario-themed watch. You might have assumed that a Swiss-made mechanical timepiece was in the works, but now the news is out: it’s actually a limited edition version of the Connected Wear OS smartwatch from Tag.

Tag Heuer has apparently yet to release details itself – its website still counts until an announcement on July 15 – but Committed, TechCrunch, and WorldTempus have all posted stories with the main features of the device. The hardware itself appears to be identical beyond a few light cosmetic tweaks to the 45mm case, including an M-for-Mario logo on the crown, and it comes with two straps: one with perforated red rubber and one with red rubber and black leather.

The watch is said to use a “gamification rewards system” with Mario and Mushroom Kingdom-themed animated greetings that play out when you complete different step goals throughout the day. There are four new Mario watch faces, including a “Timekeeping” face that features “retro elements from the 1985 version of Super Mario Bros.” with Mario, all in pixels ”. (As opposed to the physical steel from which other smartwatch faces are cast, presumably.)


Tag Heuer says he “plans to do [these Mario features] available later on other editions of TAG Heuer Connected. This can be good news for anyone who has purchased the most recent version, which started at $ 1,800 and could cost as much as $ 2,350.

The new Mario watch is at the top end of the Connected range, at $ 2,150. It’s also much more exclusive – Tag Heuer only manufactures 2,000 models, which will be available in some of its own stores and on its website in some regions from July 15.
