It has a RAM of 512MB, a 410mAH battery (up to 25h) and 4GB internal storage. Modular 45 has an app, the Tag Heuer Studio, which allows you to select and change different elements, such as the display background, theme, styles, text colour and other settings.

Although there were already other SmartWatches models capable of combining and personalizing elements, no other had offered the possibility of choosing all the elements, from the buckle itself, counter, bracelet and fittings, elevating the aesthetics and the personalization of the watch to another level. This selection can be performed in about 500 combinations, available in 56 mainstream variations. Another specificity of this watch is its adaptability and conjugation to other TAG Heuer models, such as the Heuer-02T Tourbillon and the Caliber 5.
