TAG Heuer CEO Frédéric Arnault commented on the collaboration and said
The impetus for this collaboration came from the fact that Super Mario was the first thing that came to mind when we thought of a new wellness app that we could make into a game to get people excited about it.
International and cross-generational appeal was not the only deciding factor in this collaboration. Mario is the ultimate super active character, able to get through any situation with perseverance and tenacity.
The new Hero watch face brings this iconic character to life, encouraging users to team up with Mario and get out there and be more active.
TAG Heuer Connected is the perfect partner for a connected life and the best friend of active users.

Mario moves with the scene!
What's special about the TAG Heuer Connected x Super Mario Limited Edition is that Mario appears on the screen!
The ability to change the design of the dial is one of the charms of smartwatches, but the TAG Heuer Connected x Super Mario Limited Edition features a custom Mario animation.
When the user is playing sports, Mario will actively run and jump, making it feel like he is exercising with the user.
The animations are based on the game's bonus system: Mario greets you when you start the game, and rewards are displayed at each stage of the day's goal as the number of steps accumulates.
As the number of steps increases, a different animation will appear on the board for each 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% of the day's goal.
At 25%, " Super Mushroom " is displayed at 3 o'clock; at 50%, " Clay Pipe " at 6 o'clock; at 75%, " Super Star " at 9 o'clock; and at 100%, the familiar "Goal Pole" that appears when a stage is cleared is displayed. When 100% is reached, Mario climbs up the " goal pole," which is a familiar sight when a stage is cleared.
This unique and special Mario animation is pre-installed on the TAG Heuer Connected x Super Mario Limited Edition, but will be available on other TAG Heuer Connected watches in the future. TAG Heuer Connected" users will have to wait for further information!
