Tag Heuer was an early mover in the luxury sector with the introduction of crypto payments on its US website. Now, the LVMH-owned Swiss luxury watchmaker is taking the lead again, with the addition of a connection to a crypto wallet allowing users to display their NFTs on the face of their smartwatch.
The new functionality is being added to the Tag Heuer Connected Calibre E4 smartwatch, and will also be available as a free update for smartwatch owners via Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store. Users can securely connect to crypto wallets such as Metamask or Ledger Live. The watch face has three ways to display time while showcasing NFT artworks, operating with all the collections on Ethereum.
Arnault, son of LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault, will be using the functionality himself: he recently bought a NFT from Bored Apes — an Ape with an eyepatch and diamond grin.
