Testing their golfing prowess and the unique technology of the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 ‘Golf Edition’ and TAG Heuer Golf app, the players took part in distance, precision and putting challenges.
The smartwatch and app, developed by the Swiss Watchmaker for iOS and Android Smartphones, host the technology to improve performance by recording shot distances, helping with club selection and tracking scores for up to four players, while also displaying 39,000 golf courses around the world with precise 3D mapping technology.
Using the shot-recording feature, McTominay, Jones and Shaw competed against each other in a longest drive challenge. When the shot-recording feature is activated, each player’s shot distances were recorded as they walked to their ball, with an accuracy of within one meter.
A ‘closest to the pin’ challenge followed shortly after, with the footballers using the easy-to-read 2D and 3D course mapping including accurate distance reading to course hazards, and the front middle and back of the green to assist with their club selection.
Rather than just displaying distances, the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 ‘Golf Edition’ and TAG Heuer Golf App displays high-end scrollable and interactive mapping of the entire hole using vector technology. The app boasts the ability to show the course with details including the bunkers, fairways and rough – compared to the satellite mapping technology used by other similar apps.
