Louis Vuitton’s Tambour Horizon smartwatch gets an upgrade

Comes in a new ceramic white and Wear 3100

Louis Vuitton’s new smartwatches are here and they look oh so good.

If you didn’t already know, French luxury brand Louis Vuitton has smartwatches. First announced in 2017, the original Tambour Horizon was LV’s first foray away from mechanical watches and they’re not stopping there.


This is the new 2019 Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon.

The updated watch comes in a new pristine white version. It features a ceramic case and rotating steal crown with a Monogram 24-hour ring adorned with pink-gold numbers on the Sapphire glass that sits atop the AMOLED touchscreen.

This new release comes with a matching white LV strap that looks pretty awesome and it’s interchangeable, too, so you can always switch to other LV straps of your choice. The watch pictured above features polished steel horns, but if you want your smartwatches extra luxe, it also comes in a version set with 34.97 carat diamonds.

Of course, it comes in other colors, as well. The watches are available in brown, black, and the eclipse version which is looking pretty cool to me with its two-tone look.

It’s not just the looks they’ve upgraded, though. These luxury smartwatches now run on Snapdragon’s Wear 3100 — the latest in wearable processing tech announced just last September. With 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, the new Tambour Harizon is really packing it. This means that you’re also getting the best smartwatch tech inside that beautiful and extravagant wearable exterior.

Aside from basic smartwatch functions like notifications, Google Assistant, and Google Pay or Alipay, you also get Louis Vuitton exclusive features like special LV watch faces which include the “My Travel” face that shows all your travel details and the “My 24 hours” face which features 24 time zones and other details like your step count and daily agenda.

Google Fit is available, though you don’t get a heart rate sensor on the luxury smartwatch as the caseback is reserved for the LV logo on black sapphire glass. Battery time is claimed at a whole day’s worth of use, but it can be extended to six days on watch mode. 

No news on exact pricing or availability has been announced yet but for context, the original Tambour Horizon watches started at US$ 2,450. That may seem like a lot but to add more context, that price is similar to LV’s entry-level mechanical watches. It’s not unheard of to find mechanical watches selling for as much as US$ 50,000 on their website.

Plum is a dating app designed for women who want deeper connections

‘Where respect is rewarded’

Tired (of dating apps)? Lonely? Looking for love — well, at least meaningful connections?

One new dating app will try to redefine the dating app experience.


“Where respect is rewarded” — that’s the tagline forwarded by Plum Dating. The dating app aims to reward respectful behavior by men where things other than just looks are factored in.

The brainchild of Jenna Birch, a dating coach and the author of The Love Gap: A Radical Plan to Win in Life & Love, Plum allows women to rate men they’ve encountered on the app and not the other way around. Also, you can only rate the guy, but only after your date. The scoring system revolves around three core values: Profile authenticity, Communication, and Follow-through. As for men, the higher your rate is, the more visible you’ll be in the app.

In theory, this setup aims to scope out the “nice men” as women navigate a safer dating landscape. Think of it: Women have all the control, including if they want the option to message potential mates first, or the opposite, while men legitly just have to be decent people to score well. As to if it will actually work in real life, we’ll find out this spring, which is when the app is slated to come out.
