When we told you about the Tag Heuer x Super Mario Teasing last weekend, we asked ourselves whether the watch that binds this tease would be a “classic” watch or a smartwatch. It now appears that the second hypothesis was correct. In fact, Tag Heuer has just updated its website with all the information about this watch. And his name sets the tone: TAG Heuer Connected x Super Mario
Behind this name there is a connected watch from Tag Heuer that runs on Watch OS and which has added functions related to the Nintendo mascot. For those who want to monitor their physical activity with smartwatches, an application tracks the steps of a day and displays Mario-related animations at each level reached.
For a goal of 10,000 steps per day, Mario receives a Super Mushroom 2,500 steps, he leaves his famous pipe 5,000 steps, takes a Super Canvas 7,500 steps back and reaches the famous 10,000-step flag. In addition to this app, the watch has several virtual Super Mario watch faces, including one that pays homage to the Super Mario Bros. graphics. Original.
There won’t be something for everyone
In addition to these elements on the screen, the rest of the watch is also personalized in the colors of Super Mario. It should be noted here that this is TAG Heuer Connected x Super Mario comes with two bracelets. One made of red rubber and another made of red rubber and black leather. Pictures of the clock are available in our gallery below
Limited to just 2,000 copies worldwide, the TAG Heuer Connected x Super Mario will go on sale July 15th. In the US, it sells for $ 2,150 (around 1,800 dollars at the current exchange rate). If the European price has not yet been confirmed by the Swiss brand, it would not be surprising that at least 2,000 dollars would have to be spent on it.
Finally, note that Tag Heuer does not rule out adding these Mario-related features to its other connected watches afterwards. Which might be interesting for fans of the mustached plumber who have already bought a watch of this type.
