The launch of the digital smartwatch Tambour Horizon light It Up is the latest from the fashion house five years after it entered the smartwatch category.
The Louis Vuitton smartwatch is stainless steel with a 1.2-inch display made from sapphire glass. The display lights up with the help of 24 LED lights which is below the monogram dial ring whenever a notification arrives. The new Louis Vuitton smartwatch model has an upgraded processor from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 4100 platform.
Tambour Horizon Operating System
The new smartwatch has discarded the Wear OS, the smartwatch software system from Google. They join other companies like OnePlus, Huawei, and Motorola to develop their operating system. The absence of Wear OS has a few impacts, including the inability of the Louis Vuitton smartwatch to support Google Pay. The smartwatch user can use Alipay, owned by Chinese billionaire Jack Ma’s Ant group.
The new OS, which is not yet named, is iOS and Android compatible and has features such as a stopwatch, alarm, and notifications for calls, emails, and messages. One can also monitor their health via the “My day tab,” which tracks daily steps count and heart monitoring. The “My travel” section can check the air quality and weather and keep track of the travel itinerary.
Louis Vuitton smartwatch 2022 Personalization Features
The smartwatch’s always-on display can be changed into different faces regarding personalization, and one can also add their initials with the fonts and colors of their choice. The watch, however, is not paired up with iPhone or Samsung Galaxy and also with the Louis Vuitton Connect companion app.
Louis Vuitton Smartwatch Price
Though Louis Vuitton wants to be seen as an innovative company, the Tambour Horizon digital watch has limited features, falling short for an average high-tech consumer. In addition, the Louis Vuitton smartwatch price tag is prohibitive. However, Louise Vuitton’s target audience is not the average shopper or the tech geeks, and the luxury timepiece targets fashionistas who want to spend big on tech experience.
The smartwatch is considered haute couture by a heritage brand from France, known for its luxurious products at mouth-watering prices. Louis Vuitton, famous for its posh handbags, has diversified into consumer electronic products for the past several years.
The Tambour Horizon light it Up is available worldwide and on Louis Vuitton websites. The smartwatch costs $3300 for a polished steel model and $3600 for brown and black matt finish models.
