Not everyone who carries the Y chromosome is a gadget guru, but they could be blessed with deep pockets with which a man with good taste can acquire the finer things in life. Louis Vuitton seems to be the latest addition to the smart ticker bandwagon and boy, sweet dreams are made of these. The Tambour Horizon goes best with well-ironed, stain-free, mess-free crisp clothing (remember these are just few of the million parameters upon which your first impression depends). By now, there are quite a few players in the luxury smartwatch space, so here’s why you should swing by the nearest LV store – the digital update to Google’s Android 2.0 platform simplifies life in more ways than one. Along with an exclusive LV App, laden with standard Android Wear features, this one’s loaded with a few additional ones like the City Guide. There’s no built-in heart rate monitor but brace yourself for a 42mm stainless steel brushed case, 390x390 AMOLED touchscreen and stainless steel polished horn and crown. The sapphire glass 24 hours ring (instead of a bezel) is the icing on this very stylish cake. Top all this with a sapphire glass caseback with the Louis Vuitton logo – these were the things we aspired for when we were 20. Stop guessing our age and pre-book this LV timepiece (starts from 1,80,000) to score extra brownie points with the fashion-conscious bae.
