The next generation of Louis Vuitton’s Tambour Horizon smartwatch is set to feature Qualcomm’s newest wearable chipset, the Snapdragon Wear 3100, according to a media report.

Sure, you can benefit from Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon Wear 3100 with Fossil’s Sport smartwatch for US$255 (RM1,054). You can even amp up with luxury casing with the Montblanc Summit 2 device for just US$995 (RM4,112). If you’re looking for something really special though, you can have your biometrics tracked and tell time with next generation of the US$2,490+ (RM10,291+) Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon, according to Engadget.

Over 2018, this luxury model has seen a variety of cosmetic upgrades – primarily new watch faces – but 2019 will bring a technologically new era of LV smartwatches; the second generation Tambour Horizon will be arriving with an industry-leading processor which boasts better battery life and a sleek new ambient mode. Additionally, the company will be giving the new model a better screen with higher definition, and the display will come with a 24-hour ring.

Naturally, this new model will arrive in new designs and colours, including a white ceramic option, but no price tag or release date have been revealed yet. With the first model putting owners back US$2,490, the 2019 model is expected to go up from there. – AFP Relaxnews
