The Tambour Horizon watch enriches the “My Travel” experience by grouping all of your travel information together in one place.

Before, during and at the end of your journey, all of your essential travel information is displayed so that you have it constantly on hand. And finding the address of a hotel, restaurant or tourist site has never been so easy thanks to the exclusive City Guide function, featuring 30 international destinations.
The Sport-Luxe Looks
Comes in four colours, the Tambour Horizon has the sporty look with Louis Vuitton’s signature monogram patterns in matte black, eclipse (two tone), brown, and pure white. Personalise dial watch face makes the smart watch even more versatile and the House has added special watch faces that features the same strong design aesthetic typical of a Louis Vuitton runway show. Exclusive service also available for the smart watch just like when you buy your Louis Vuitton’s bags – adding your initials!
More personalisations come in new versions of interchangeable straps. Louis Vuitton offers new versions of straps with unique patterns, colours, and materials. So many options to choose to match your bags!
What Makes the Tambour Horizon to be the “Smart Traveller”
Making the Tambour Horizon watch even more intuitive, the various functions are now accessed quickly and easily with a rotating crown that can be turned with a single finger. With the new Qualcomm® Snapdragon WearTM 3100 Platform, the watch is now boasting an extended battery life of one full day and up to 5 additional days in watch mode (time display only). It also has an improved screen with excellent definition.
Across the rim, a new 24-hour ring with day/night indicator,visible even when the watch is in ambient mode, lets you view all your data at a glance. With its own watch face, the “Agenda” function separates meeting times from free time with distinctive coloured segments. The “Step counter” function lets travellers who like to visit cities on foot record the distance treked and the most intensive periods of movement. Again, the watch face has a detailed design with the LV Archlight, the iconic Louis Vuitton sneaker, pictured at the centre. The “Pollution” function displays the air quality index on the watch face in real time. Air quality projections are displayed in coloured segments. Weather and temperature forecasts put the finishing touches to the Tambour Horizon’s functions.
The latest processor, Qualcomm® Snapdragon WearTM 3100 Platform, which just launched in 2018, holds three such personalized experiences include the Enhanced Ambient Mode, Dedicated Sports Experiences, and Traditional Watch Mode. The Enhanced Ambient Mode helps the smartwatch to meet consumer desires for a fashion watch by supporting a smooth second hand, up to 16 colors, live complications and improved brightness. Louis Vuitton is one of the first brands to tap on these cutting-edge technologies.
Tambour Horizon also uses the Wear OS by GoogleTM operating system. It allows users to enjoy a simple and improved navigation experience that gives them access their information faster.
