If you’re rich and you’re looking for something really special in a smartwatch, then the Louis Vuitton LV Tambour Horizon is for you. You can get all your activities tracked for a premium price $2,400.

The new LV Tambour Horizon, the follow up to the 2017 wearable of the same name, is again a Wear OS device aimed at the premium end of the market.

The smartwatch, which was designed in collaboration between Qualcomm and Google, will not only provide a full day’s worth of power with the screen on, but also 5 days of power while displaying just the time and step count.

Around the rim, the watch has a day and night indicator, which remains visible even when the device is in ambient mode. A new feature with the Wear 3100 displays the user’s heart rate and step count alongside the time on screen while saving power, reports EndGadget.
