The smartwatch industry hasn’t taken off the way we all hoped it would, but it seems luxury brands haven’t gotten the memo. Today Louis Vuitton announced the Tambour Horizon Connected Watch, coming in at the low, low price of $2,450.
It’s basically just a normal Android Wear watch, with a Snapdragon 2100, 4GB storage, 512MB RAM, and a 390 x 390 AMOLED screen. For the price one would at least hope for a heart rate sensor.
The only unique features appear to be a ‘Vuitton City Guide,’ which is a tour guide of questionable quality on your wrist, and ‘my Flight,’ which gives you flight information. Alrighty then.
Should you wish to buy this, the most Veblen of Veblen goods, then you’ll need to pay up $2,450 for the gray and brown, or $2,900 for the black version. Plus, Louis Vuitton is hoping to make more of its goods and services connected in the future, so warn your bank manager that this could be the first of many purchases.
