Louis Vuitton has partnered with Google and Qualcomm to come up with a super expensive Android Wear smartwatch, known as Tambour Horizon. The wearable will set you back by around $2,900 if you’re getting the top-end variant.

The internal hardware is pretty much on par with any other Android Wear smartwatch, including the 1.2-inch 390 x 390 circular AMOLED display, Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a 300 mAh battery, and Android Wear 2.0. The smartwatch is missing a dedicated heart-rate sensor, however. The wearable will be available in Gray, Brown, and Black cases.

Naturally, the wearable will be heavily customizable with over 60 watch bands to choose from (30 each for men and women). On the software side, users will be able to find a wide array of exclusive features including apps like My Flight, to help you with flights and airports, and City Guide, which offers you suggestions on places to visit on your arrival in a new city. The Tambour Horizon also comes with a handful of custom LV branded watch faces on board.

The Gray and Brown models will set you back by $2,450, while the Black variant of the Tambour Horizon will cost $2,900. Still pretty expensive considering how regular Android Wear offerings don’t go for much more than $400. Tag Heuer recently launched the Connected Modular 45 with Android Wear for about $1650, so Louis Vuitton is not in the minority when it comes to luxury smartwatches.
