LUXURY watchmaker Tag Heuer has unveiled a ritzy smartwatch that will set you back nearly $200,000.

We take a look at six of the costliest gadgets around – and reveal their ENORMOUS price tags.

Tag Heuer Connected 45 Full Diamond smartwatch – £143,000

This bling-tastic Tag Heuer is a smartwatch that comes kitted out with Google's popular Android Wear software.

But it's so expensive because it's made from 18K white gold and has a grand total of 589 diamonds studded around the body.

By comparison, the standard, diamond-free Connected 45 smartwatch seems a real steal at just $1,600 (£1,160).

Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 90 speaker – £58,820

The audiophiles over at Bang & Olufsen recently debuted the BeoLab 90, a chic speaker that costs a lofty £58,820.

The pricey gadget comes with 18 "state of the art" loudspeaker drivers, and is available to hear in some stores "by appointment only".

"BeoLab 90 is the culmination of our wildest dreams," says the Danish audio firm.

Samsung Class 105S9 Curved 4K TV – £108,000

Upgrade your living room today with this $149,999.99 mega-television from Samsung.

This TV spans an incredible 105 inches, boasting a curved screen and a full 4K display resolution.

It also has four HDMI ports, which is arguably slightly less than you'd expect from a TV that costs more than some houses.

Sony LSPX-A1 projector – £22,000

Sony showed off this ridiculously expensive projector at CES, grabbing headlines on account of the $30,000 (£22,000) price tag.

Its main highlight is the ability to throw 4K footage at your wall up to a maximum "screen" size of 120 inches.

But it's also designed to look like a piece of furniture, so it technically doubles as the most expensive coffee table you'll ever own too.

Vertu Signature Cobra – £260,000

Premium phone-maker Vertu recently went bust, but not before launching a $360,000 (£260,000) handset called the Signature Cobra.

This bafflingly costly Android phone was built entirely in the UK, where just eight units were made.

The body features a unique snake motif that has emeralds for eyes. Oh, and Vertu threw in 439 rubies for good measure.

AudioQuest Diamond 1m Braided HDMI cable – £795

Rip-off HDMI cables are a big problem for customers who aren't tech savvy, but this takes the biscuit.

AudioQuest's one-metre "diamond" HDMI cable is currently retailing for a frankly extortionate $1,094.75 (£795) on Amazon.

Our advice? Ignore these dodgy sellers and pay no more than £10 for a HDMI cable.
