INTRODUCING: This new TAG Heuer Connected with blue ceramic bezel is hands down the best looking smart watch on the market

TAG Heuer Connected colourOver the weekend, we unveiled a new watch by a different brand with a colourful dial. The crowd went properly crazy. In a dark year, colour has never been more wanted, or more welcome on the most visible parts of a watch. Being the dial, the bezel, the strap. The LVMH Watch Department is continuing its impressive run of new smartwatches in 2020 at pace, with the latest member of the Switzerland/Silicon Valley marriage, the TAG Heuer Connected, now being offered in a range of bright colours. A short history of smart watches in 2020 After the standard version of the TAG Heuer Connected was released in March, it was followed by the Hublot Big Bang e, and then the latest expression of the TAG Heuer Connected Golf Edition, making this latest release the fourth for the year so far. While the updates in this latest smartwatch are focused on the aesthetics, the new colours do inject an element of fun and playfulness into the collection that wasn’t there before. You get all of the same day-to-day functionality as the standard colourway, including the full suite of notifications from emails and social media, incoming calls, NFC payments with Google Pay…

NEWS: Hublot launch an ecommerce site with a big bang, huge number of references available for purchase now

Adapt or die. You either get with these troubled times, or consign yourself to the pages of history. For watchmakers and retailers alike, or really anyone in the world of horology, this sentiment has never been more real or more confronting. COVID-19 poses a threat to the luxury watch industry that may dwarf even the quartz crisis. And even though we’re still in this pandemic’s infancy, the news is dire. In fact, according to the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry, Swiss watch exports fell 81.3 per cent in April compared to the previous year, and exports to Hong Kong and the US, which are the two biggest markets for Swiss watches, were also in steep decline. The Hublot E-Commerce Store is Now Open Hublot have a better chance at arresting this slide, thanks to their new online store, which you can check out at this link.

Kanye West is running for US President, here are 5 of his watches you might spot on the campaign trail

Kanye wins the 2020 US electionEarlier this week, Kanye West announced that he was going to run for President of the United States. That’s right, the 43-year-old rapper and streetwear designer married to Kim Kardashian says he will run in this year’s election that is set to play out in November. While it’s certainly a late announcement, and it isn’t even clear if he would be able to get his name on a ballot paper, this isn’t the first time Kanye has made his ambitions known in public.  In August 2015, at the MTV Music Video Awards, he closed out a stream-of-consciousness speech with, “as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president”, before dropping the microphone on the ground and walking off stage. While this definitely sparked discussion about how serious the statement was, Kanye added fuel to the fire in a lyric on his February 2016 album The Life of Pablo, where he rapped, “2020, I’ma run the whole election, yah!” In the last four years, Kanye has stayed a little more quiet on his desire to undertake the country’s top job, despite being seen publicly with Donald Trump and doubling down on his…
