The Differences

Features compared
  1. Design
  2. No doubt, each of these smartwatch has got really nice and fascinating design and the differences come in the sizes and finishing. Apple watch series 4 seems to be the most innovative with a bezeless design that extends to the sides. It has a whooping 1.7 inches screen size while still not being bulky a bit. This allows you to see more at a glance. However, the bezel on both the Tag Heuer and Galaxy watch sort of gives the two a more classic design that makes the both better suitable choice for official outings.

    Surprisingly, Apple watch has the thickness size measuring just 10.7mm on its bigger case makes it the sleekest among these three. Tag Heuer connected has the biggest thickness size of 13.2mm. It is quiet bulky.

    As of time of writing this article we couldn’t find out the weight of Tag heuer connected 41 which has a body made from grade 5 silver titanium material which is very light, but give it to Apple. How they managed to have the Series 4 weigh just 48 grams is quiet amazing. Samsung galaxy weighs 64 grams without the straps certainly is the heaviest among these three.

  3. Cellular Network
  4. Tag heuer connected 41 lacks cellular connectivity support, it is not a standalone smartwatch, it can’t make calls on its own. However this feature is present in both the Apple watch 4 and Galaxy watch which makes the both standalone smartwatches capable of making calls directly from the device without needing to connect to a phone.

  5. Fitness tracking
  6. Again the Connected 41 lags behind, it lacks a heart rate sensor which makes it not such a good idea for fitness tracking. While any of Apple watch series 4 or Galaxy watch will be a perfect choice for fitness tracking. Apple watch takes it further with the inbuilt Electrocardiogram sensor that lets you take heart rate readings. Although it is only available in the US where it has been certified. In addition, the Apple watch being the lightest in weight plus the sporty design makes it a more perfect fit for fitness activities.

  7. Battery Life
  8. All of these three smartwatches have a quiet impressive battery life which manages to exceed a day on regular usage. The battery life of any smartwatch mostly depends on the chipset inside and processor that determines the efficiency of the watch, although for now there is no best way to really say this chipset is better than the other. So you can expect a full day usage on a single charge with any of these smartwatches.

  9. Media/Storage
  10. Although industry average on internal storage space is still 4GB, but that is only for a while as more new smartwatches now have higher ROMs. Tag Heuer connected 41 has 8GB ROM while Apple watch gives you 16GB and Galaxy watch is a mere 4GB ROM. The higher the ROM the better. Besides that, Apple watch 4 has the least RAM size while on the Galaxy watch it varies depending on LTE capabilities.

    There is no speaker on the Tag Heuer connected, while Apple watch and Galaxy watch both have loudspeakers built-in allowing you play media files aloud.

  11. Operating system
  12. Both Samsung Galaxy watch and Apple watch series 4 run on their respective platform and we must emphasize that these two top brands have really advanced their platforms and have gotten a whole lot right. While Wear OS got redesigned recently, it still lags behind in terms of features, but we hope they get right. However you should understand that with Wear OS you will get lots of options to choose from in terms of apps.

  13. Price

Without any need to argument this, the Tag heuer connected 41 costs far more than the Apple watch 4 or Galaxy watch. The Tag Heuer connected 41 costs about $1400, it could be more than that because price depends on the material used on the body. Apple watch series 4 cost about $1000 while the Samsung galaxy cost far less about $460-$500.



There is no easy way to say this is better than that, because all of this three are great choices. However we will consider value for money first before luxury. In that regard, Samsung Galaxy watch gives the best value for money. It cost far less than both Apple watch 4 and Tag Heuer Connected 41. It also has a great design that makes it a perfect fit for any occasion. Unlike Apple watch 4, the Galaxy watch is compatible with both android and iOS phones.

However, if use an iPhone, then you should choose the Apple watch series 4. It will give you the best experience than any of Galaxy watch or Tag Heuer connected 41.

On a last taught, if you just after luxury , then the Tag Heuer connected 41 is the perfect choice. It is really a great choice with a fascinating design, built with highly durable and light materials in the purest Swiss watch making tradition. It no doubts adds all the needed prestige.

Here is a summary;

SAMSUNG GALAXY WATCH Best value for money, a comprehensive smartwatch with spectacular design.
APPLE WATCH SERIES 4 Best for iPhone users, light weight and fascinating design.
TAG HEUER CONNECTED MODULAR 41 The perfect luxury smartwatch, class plus prestige.

Our Pick

No doubt, Samsung Galaxy watch is our preferred choice. It gives the best value for money. It is a standalone smartwatch that is fully compatible with both Android and iOS phones plus it’s also a great choice for fitness tracking and perfect wear to any occasion.
