Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon
The Tambour Horizon combines the technical capacity of a ‘smartwatch’ with the elegance of a Tambour—the iconic watch that began Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking story in 2002. It has a compact 42-mm case, a 1.2-inch Amoled 390×390 touchscreen and is powered by a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor. Keeping in line with Louis Vuitton’s travel ties, the watch has also been fitted with exclusive functions like My Flight and City Guide. Available in graphite, monogram and black.

Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45
This is not just a smartwatch but also, as the name suggests, modular. Yes, the watch hosts both digital and mechanical modules that attach to the watch’s lugs (available in rose gold, titanium or ceramic), so you can switch from one to the other. Both modules are the same size, 45 mm. The touchscreen is sapphire crystal, and the watch is powered by an Intel Atom processor Z34XX series and operates on Android Wear 2.0.

Breitling Bentley Supersports B55
The Breitling Connected has been made to mark the launch of the Bentley Continental Supersports, and although not really a smartwatch, it enables the wearer to control the watch via a smartphone app. Users can set alarms and access stored times measured by the chronograph function. It can also display alerts, notifications and reminders pushed from the phone. True to its association with Bentley, the watch is equipped with a flyback chronograph, lap timer, and a special electronic tachymeter.
