THE TAMBOUR HORI­ZON

Louis Vuit­ton’s rst smart­watch aims to be your per­sonal travel concierge.

Herworld (Singapore) - - NEWS - – RT

The French brand doesn’t de­vi­ate from its DNA of help­ing you to travel well, whether it’s sell­ing you a duf­fle or per­fume, or in this case, a time­piece. De­vel­oped to­gether with Google and Qual­comm, and run­ning on An­droid Wear 2.0, the pur­pose of the Tambour Hori­zon is to be with you ev­ery step of the way for all your jour­neys, from the mo­ment you’re booked on a ight. It tells you where you can go, where you can stay, and what you can do – even if you have only two hours of play­time.

The “concierge ser­vice” kicks in the minute you e-mail your ight de­tails to your ded­i­cated Louis Vuit­ton e-mail ad­dress (yes, this deca­dence comes with the watch), which in turn trans­fers that info into your Hori­zon. Then, for the next how­ever many hours/days/weeks you have be­fore you leave (this de­pends on your set­tings), My Flight, a func­tion that tracks your up­com­ing ight, will up­date you about it with dif­fer­ent­coloured rings. Blue = ev­ery­thing’s on sched­ule; green = it’s time to board; and red = ight’s de­layed.

In­for­ma­tion from seven of Louis Vuit­ton’s fa­mous city guides is also in­te­grated into the smart­watch. When you ar­rive at your des­ti­na­tion, if it hap­pens to be Lon­don, New York, Paris, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Beijing or Sao Paulo, you’ll nd all its City Guide de­tails at your nger­tips. Hori­zon’s ge­olo­ca­tion func­tion will rec­om­mend in real time the best spots near you to see, eat or chill.

From $3,700 for the graphite or Mono­gram case with rub­ber strap, or $4,300 for the black case with rub­ber strap.

Her World Sept 2017 What’s the point of hav­ing in­ter­change­able straps if the process is not do-ity­our­self easy? Ev­ery Tambour time­piece solves the co­nun­drum with a press lock sys­tem that lets you change your strap in 10 sec­onds with just a push of a but­ton. Once the strap is locked down, even a hard yank won’t undo it.
