Consumers can already benefit from Qualcomm's new Snapdragon Wear 3100 with Fossil's Sport smartwatch for $255. They can even amp up with luxury casing with the Montblanc Summit 2 device for just $995. Those looking for a real luxury experience, however, can have track their biometrics and tell time with the next generation of the $2,490+ Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon, according to Engadget.

Over 2018, this luxury model has seen a variety of cosmetic upgrades – primarily new watch faces – but 2019 will bring a technologically new era of LV smartwatches; the second generation Tambour Horizon will be arriving with an industry-leading processor which boasts better battery life and a sleek new ambient mode. Additionally, the company will be giving the new model a better screen with higher definition, and the display will come with a 24-hour ring.

Naturally, this new model will arrive in new designs and colors, including a white ceramic option, but no price tag or release date have been revealed yet. With the first model putting owners back $2,490, the 2019 model is expected to go up from there.
