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.

With everything going on in the world, it’s no surprise that people are spending more time in the kitchen and looking out for new recipes.

The good news? Samsung has just the thing to get it sorted quickly and easily. They’re bringing in Family Hub features into mobile users through the SmartThings app.

Samsung’s SmartThings Cooking service helps bring all of your Samsung kitchen appliances together. How? It lets you search, plan, purchase, and meal prep seamlessly through your phone or fridge through the SmartThings app.

On top of that, it recommends customized recipes based on your taste and preferences while considering ingredients available to you. You can scroll through recipe collections when you’re undecided or quickly zero-in on meals that suit your cravings.

SmartThings Cooking, powered by Whisk, is accessible through Samsung’s SmartThings. If you’ve got the Family Hub in your smart kitchen arsenal, there’s no need to fret.

The fridge keeps tabs of what you have and don’t, adding missing ingredients directly to your online grocery cart for at-home deliveries. Not to mention, you can shop through Walmart, Kroger, Instacart, and Amazon Fresh, using the Whisk network.

With SmartThings added to the Family Hub smart fridge, you get to enjoy all the cool features and more! You get to access your other smart kitchen gadgets through widgets on the screen, prioritize most used apps, and feature family photos, notes, and recipes.

And, if cooking is what you’re worried about, Samsung has you covered for even that. SmartThings guides you through easy cooking steps and lets you control cooking modes, temperatures, and time settings with one touch. Leaving you with little room for error.

So, with all that in mind, was it really a surprise to see Samsung’s Family Hub win its sixth consecutive CES Innovation Award this year? For us, not quite.

Last year and this upcoming one has been a downer. So, when the daunting reality of our world taking its time keeping us all in misery hits you, a treat to numb the pain helps. I mean, we could also curl up into a ball and cry but ice cream while curled up into a ball while crying is the way to go.

Meet ColdSnap: an ice-cream-making gadget by Sigma Phase at CES 2021. It works like coffee pod machines but instead of coffee, it serves ice cream and other frozen treats from recyclable aluminium pods.

From frozen cocktails, fruit smoothies, and classic ice cream, this gadget has all the chill in its arsenal to keep you happy or the very least, sane. The pods look like slim cans that have built-in QR codes to make the liquid mix freeze to the perfect consistency in about 60 to 90 seconds. And, if you’re lactose intolerant, there’s no need to have your gut on the line. ColdSnap offers non-dairy options like oat milk ice cream.

ColdSnap is still in the prototype stage and won’t be available until 2022. When it hits retail, it’s expected to cost somewhere between US$ 500 and US$ 1,000 with the pods costing somewhere between US$ 2.50 to US$ 3.

Sex tech company Lora DiCarlo showcased a new lineup of innovative, heated vibrators at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2021. Meet Drift, Tilt, and Sway, dubbed as “The Warming Collection”.

Inspired by human warmth, the new model mimics the heat we experience from our partners’ bodies. Lora DiCarlo used a nylon-based thermally conductive polymer and its WarmSense Technology, simulating body temperature.

Through this innovation, these gadgets internally heat up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit and use three vibration patterns with seven intensity settings for one-of-a-kind pleasure. Despite the heating technology, these devices are completely waterproof up to one meter.

Drift

Perfect for beginners, Drift is a curved, handheld bullet vibrator with an ergonomic design, ideal for G-spot and clitoral exploration.

Tilt

Next in line is the dual vibration plug Tilt. It’s the versatile, middle child in the new lineup, designed to please all genders and anatomies. It simultaneously stimulates your G-spot and clitoris, or your P-spot and perineum.

Sway

Sway is a wand-shaped dual vibration warming massager. Its dual-ended design can be used internally or externally, with or without a partner.
