The mirror-polished and fine-brushed stainless steel is premium grade surgical 316L, corrosion-resistant and hypoallergenic.
TAG Heuer Mobile Security (Powered by Kaspersky) provides top grade protection from network attacks, malware targeting mobile platforms, and SMS spam. On top of that it allows users to locate a lost or stolen smartphone using the GPS Find function, store all digital assets in encrypted folders, and remotely block or wipe the smartphone if it is lost or stolen. With Kaspersky Lab’s Mobile Security, the owner of a LINK smartphone is able to efficiently manage private contacts, filter out annoying calls and texts by assigning contacts to black lists and white lists, restrict children’s calls and texts, and monitor the phone’s whereabouts using GPS Find.
