Going up against the likes of Apple and Tag Heuer, the luxury fashion brand, Louis Vuitton throws its hat in the smartwatch ring with the launch of the Tambour Horizon Android wear watch. An amalgamation of technology and high fashion, the pricey Tambour Horizon smart watch offers a level of exclusivity to a usually mass-market device. The 42mm Tambour Horizon smartwatch will be available in Black, Graphite and Monogram along with stainless steel watch cases and sapphire glass back buckles. All three models are water resistant up to 30 meters and includes 60 interchangeable strap options like white, baby pink etc .

Developed in collaboration with Qualcomm and Google, the LV smartwatch runs Android Wear 2.0. The 42mm case sports a 1.2-inch, 390 x 390 resolution AMOLED touchscreen display and is powered by a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor to keep Google’s OS running slick alongside 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. The 300mAh battery is said to get you through a day’s use. It may not be the best workout companion as the Tambour Horizon does not include a heart rate monitor.  Other interesting features are the ‘Vuitton City Guide,’ which is basically a tour guide on your wrist, and ‘my Flight,’ which gives you flight information.

The regular stainless steel model is available for $2,450, while the black variant will cost $2,900. Additional accessories include interchangeable watch straps and a battery charger with a Louis Vuitton cover for $235 and $140 respectively . It also features a sapphire crystal Louis Vuitton logo on the caseback.  But for those looking for a mechanical option,  the Louis Vuitton Escale Time Zone watch runs for $7,200.
