The embedded system uses special editions of the commercial Aquaracer 500M Calibre 72 Countdown chronograph, customized for each sailor’s specific tasks and wirelessly linked directly to the boat’s onboard computers.

“This was a first for sailing and a first for Swiss watchmaking,” said Stéphane Linder, Tag Heuer President and CEO. “It represents the next-generation of competitive sport technology. We’re looking forward to participating in similar ventures with teams across the full spectrum of professional sports.”

Of course, this old, grey Skyhawk thinks that this technology would be an excellent tactical 'force multiplier' for our joint services; perhaps then our military will be propelled full speed into the 20th century...nope, that's not a typo; as a Sailor and an Airman, I was - and still am - appalled at the pure kluge still in use by our military branches...we're talking Windows95 here.  Damn, but I miss Grace Hopper...

...Sorry, guys; rant's over.  Cool Tag!
