Additionally, TAG Heuer is working with PGMOL – the organisation that manages professional referees that officiate in the Premier League – to design a new TAG Heuer Connected smartwatch which will meet their timing and training needs. This watch is being developed by TAG Heuer in conjunction with Intel and Google Android Wear.
