Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon 2019 edition sees luxury smartwatch get a battery boost

Second gen Wear watch powered by Qualcomm's new Wear 3100 chip

We knew a new Louis Vuitton smartwatch was coming, and now the luxury fashion brand has revealed its second generation smartwatch that will once again run on Google's Wear OS operating system.

There doesn't appear to be any official details of the new watch on the Tambour Horizon section of the Louis Vuitton website, but the folks at Engadget appear to have the lowdown on what we can expect from the 2019 edition of the LV smartwatch.

While the Wear watch looks set to retain the circular look as its predecessor, the most notable change lies underneath that stylish exterior with the introduction of Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor. That's set to bring performance improvements across the board including a boost in battery life. You should now expect a full day of battery life and up to five days when you're just using the watch to display the time.

Improvements have been made in the display department too with a higher resolution touchscreen now in tow, although there's no specifics on those screen specs. A new 24-hour ring feature on the watch will indicate when it's day or night and will be visible when the watch is ambient mode. You can also expect to pick up the watch in new looks and colors including a model similar to the monogram white one LV unveiled back in April this year.

So what about that price? Well, this is a luxury smartwatch we are talking about. While Louis Vuitton hasn't revealed how much the Tambour Horizon 2019 edition will cost or when it will be available, it's safe to assume it won't be too far off the $2,450 it cost to own the first Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon.

We were pretty big fans of the first watch and it was Highly Commended at the 2017 edition of the Wareable Tech Awards in the Smartwatch of the Year category. So it's definitely one we're keen to spend some time with when it officially lands.
