5 cool things about Louis Vuitton's first smartwatch, the Tambour Horizon
Jennifer Connelly, Jaden Smith, Gong Yoo and Doona Bae are already sporting the new smartwatch
Louis Vuitton is the latest fashion brand to join the wearable tech frenzy with the Tambour Horizon, the maison's first ever smartwatch. It has basic functions most smartwatches in the market carry – it notifies you about emails, messages and incoming calls – but at $2,511 (approx. RM10,780), there's the question of what else can this watch do.
The answer: plenty. Especially if you're the kind to travel with a watch and phone. Louis Vuitton seems to have drawn on its recurring Spirit of Travel theme, incorporating many useful features globetrotters will appreciate. Read on for highlights.
1. It's customisable
The Tambour Horizon comes in three colours – Graphite, Monochrome and Black – and 60 interchangeable straps ($303, approx. RM1,300 each) for you to choose from. You can even download different watch faces and other useful daily-life apps too.
2. It keeps your travel details organised
The 'My Flight' feature – a quality that's exclusive to the Tambour Horizon – allows the wearer to keep track of their scheduled flight times, terminal and gate information, reports of delays, and the estimated time of arrival.

3. Navigating is made easier
The Tambour Horizon's 'City Guide' app gives you access to useful information about the most-visited cities in the world. The watch has a geolocation function that informs you of nearby restaurants, hotels, historical landmarks and tourist attractions when you're on holiday.
4. Planning for your next trip will be a breeze
The smartwatch has a '24 Hour In' feature that gives you Louis Vuitton-approved recommendations about what to do at any time of the day in seven selected cities: London, New York, Paris, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Beijing and Sao Paolo. From there, you can even call up the venue or map out an itinerary for yourself.
5. It tells the time
A handy world clock installed in the smartwatch's interface helps when you keep getting your time zones mixed up (with jetlag, you never know what can happen).
