Louis Vuitton unveils luxury smartwatch


Luxury brand Louis Vuitton has joined its sister company TAG Heuer in launching a smartwatch for affluent customers.

With a price tag of $2450 (£1900), the Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon is more expensive than the £1200 TAG Heuer Connected and even the Apple’s top of the range Watch – Hermès Series 2 is cheaper at £1149-£1459.

Utilising Martian’s technology, it offers the usual functions of message alerts and activity tracking, although it does not have a heart rate monitor. It will connect to Android or IOS phones, and to a WiFi network. Battery life is as bad as you’d expect – probably won’t get through a day without recharging !
