Back in the 1950s Tag Heuer advertisements highlighted that you could use the tachymeter bezel of the Auto-Graph watch to count golf scores. Watch technology has advanced quite a bit since then, while the company’s passion for golf remained the same.

The Tag Heuer Connected Calibre E4 Golf Edition is a variant of the E4 (which came out this February) that is custom designed for the sport. The watch has an 18 hole bezel and it will use color-coded bars to denote your performance at each hole.

This is possible since the watch comes pre-loaded with 2D maps for over 40,000 golf courses. It detects your first swing in the tee area and automatically starts tracking your game (in previous generations you had to start that manually).

As you go, the watch will show the distance to the next hole and recommend which club to use. The more you play, the more the watch learns about you, eg it remembers what clubs you have used in previous visits and where the ball landed , so it can adjust its recommendations.

The Tag Heuer Connected Calibre E4 Golf Edition has a 45 mm body made out of lightweight titanium with matte black “diamond-like carbon” coating. The dimpled rubber strap is white to add some contrast. The regular E4 has a 42 mm version, but the Golf Edition is available only in 45 mm.

The 1.39” OLED display (454 x 454 px) is brighter than previous generations and makes for easier daytime viewing. Besides the touchscreen, there are two buttons on the side along with a digital crown.

The watch is powered by the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ and promises 30% battery life than its predecessor (which used the 3100). You should get 24 hours of battery life, a full charge takes 90 minutes.

Naturally, the Calibre E4 features a GPS and an accelerometer, which are used to track your position on the course and swings. They can be used by other apps too, Strava, for example, since this is a fully-featured Google Wear OS watch . The watch also features a heart rate sensor.
