Yes, Louis Vuitton also makes smartwatches. The next-generation LV Tambour Horizon smartwatch, running Wear OS, will now be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon Wear 3100 chip, which was designed in collaboration between Qualcomm and Google. What does this mean for the device? Improved battery life, or in other words a full day’s worth of power with the screen on, and an additional five days in low-power mode displaying just the time. One caveat: it will set you back at least $2,490. Read more for a hands-on video review of the previous generation and additional information.
You also get an improved screen and a new 24-hour ring with day/night indicator across the rim visible even in ambient mode. The rich ambient mode displays time and information, such as heart rate or step count, on the screen while using less power than the watch would when it’s fully active.
“In addition to upgrading its old Tambour Horizon designs and colors with the new chipset, LV has also added a white ceramic option. Unfortunately, the luxury company hasn’t revealed its availability or pricing yet, but we doubt anybody expects it to be cheap,” reports Engadget.
