Louis Vuitton entered the smart watch market with the launch of its first ever smart watch, Tambour Horizon.

The watch which has been developed in collaboration with Qualcomm and Google runs on Android Wear 2.0 software.

The Tambour Horizon has a 1.2 AMOLED 390*390 touchscreen and is powered by a Qualcomm 2100 Snapdragon processor. The specification list is rounded off with a 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage put together with 300mAH battery that will last for about 22 hours on each charge. However, it is not equipped with a heart rate monitor, and rightly so, as TechCrunch points out, people often don’t work out while wearing a watch with a hefty price tag of $3000.

The watch features Wifi, connects to the smartphones over Bluetooth 4.1 and has a bunch of exclusive apps like MyFlight which pulls out the flight details from your emails and displays them on the watch face and helps you get around the airports and the airplanes. And then there is City Guide app which helps you locate the local hotspots when you land.

The smart watch comes in three case styles gray, black and brown with more than 60 detachable straps to choose from, 30 meant for women and 30 meant for men.

The watch is available online and in Louis Vuitton stores and is priced between $2,450 and $2,900. With the launch of this luxury smartwatch Louis Vuitton has joined the likes of fellow fashion icons Tag Heuer, Montblanc and Apple.
