After launching the nearly $3,500 Wear OS packing Tambour Horizon smart watch back in 2017, Louis Vuitton has today announced a refresh of the watch now with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor and a new look.

The move to a Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor isn’t surprising with the luxury fashion brand called out in the press release for the processor when it launched last year. The 42.9mm case will be water resistant up to 30 metres and available in a number of options including polished steel, matte black PVD, white ceramic, white ceramic with gem-set horns, and matte brown PVD according to Droid-Life, and come with a 1.2″ 390×390 resolution AMOLED display.

Internally the Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor will be paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of on-board storage and a 300mAh battery. The watch will also support Google Pay with the inclusion of NFC. The watch appears to be mainly fashion focused with no heart rate sensor or GPS connectivity.

There’s no launch date or pricing availability announced as yet, and the Louis Vuitton Australia website is still showing the older model currently. If the previous model is anything to go by the new Tambour Horizon Wear OS watch will be quite the expensive option for your wrist.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

If these watches don’t have batteries that are easily removed and replaced you’d have to be an idiot to spend $3500 or more. At $250 to $500, you’d still be annoyed at having to throw your smartwatch out after a few years when the battery dies (or Wear OS stops working), but who is throwing away a $3500 watch?
