Louis Vuitton’s new watch is one of the most expensive Android Wear devices to date
One of the best things about buying into the Android ecosystem is choice. No matter what device you’re buying – smartphone, smartwatch, or tablet
– there are plenty of options out there that will likely suit your
buying needs. And especially in the case of Android Wear, choice has
never been more prevalent.
Louis Vuitton has just thrown its hat into the Android Wear ring with the introduction of the new Tambour Horizon watch.
The Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon sports a very similar internal
setup to other Android Wear devices. It comes with a 1.2-inch AMOLED
display with a resolution of 390 x 390, a Snapdragon Wear 2100
processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of storage, and a 300 mAh battery. The
casing measures 42 mm and it’s only 12.5 mm thick, making this a
decidedly middle-of-the-road watch in terms of sizing. Of course, it’s
also running Android Wear 2.0, pre-loaded with a handful of Louis
Vuitton’s own watch faces.

Two exclusive apps are also pre-loaded on the Tambour Horizon.

There are a bunch of ways to customize your watch, too. It’s
available in three case styles, Gray (Graphite), Brown (Monogram), and
Black. A total of 60 straps are available for the watch, 30 intended for
women, 30 intended for men.
As you may have guessed, this watch is going to cost a
pretty penny. The Gray and Brown models are going for $2,450, while the
Black version costs $2,900.
