Louis Vuitton just launched a line of Android smartwatches that start at $3,176 -- take a look

Louis Vuitton smartwatchLouis VuittonLouis Vuitton’s nearly $A4,000 smartwatch is aimed at world travellers.

Louis Vuitton is getting into the smartwatch game.

The French fashion house launched its first wearable on Tuesday, the Tambour Horizon. The watch runs Android Wear 2.0, Google’s smartwatch operating system, and retails for — prepare yourself — $A3,176 and up.

This is Louis Vuitton’s first wearable, but it’s not the first luxury smartwatch. Apple used to sell versions of the Apple Watch that cost anywhere between $A12,965 and $A24,633. Apple and French designer Hermès built a version that costs $A1,813. The Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 (which also runs Android Wear) costs $A2,204.

Nevertheless, at over $A3,176, Louis Vuitton’s Tambour Horizon is still one of the priciest smartwatches you’ll find on the market, and easily the most expensive Android smartwatch available. Here’s what it’s like:

Louis Vuitton says the battery will last up to 22 hours with normal usage. While it is waterproof up to 30 meters, the watch does not have a heart rate monitor.

The watch is geared toward global travellers. You'll be able to add your upcoming flights, there's a 'City Guide' application, and the watch includes a 24-hour clock that shows weather and temperatures for different time zones.
