Montblanc Summit enters the luxury smartwatch market, launched with Android Wear 2.0

By Team Feedbaac

If TAG Heuer’s latest smartwatch is a bit expensive for your pocket, then how about the new Montblanc Summit, a new luxury smartwatch that runs on Android Wear 2.0 OS and costs much cheaper than the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45.

The Summit features a 1.39-inch circular AMOLED display with 400 x 400 resolution. The device is powered by the Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor with 512MB RAM and 4GB internal storage onboard. The smartwatch comes with IP68 water resistance, heart rate monitor, barometer and microphone. However, there are no NFC, no GPS and no cellular connectivity.

While the Montblanc Summit doesn’t have swappable modules, the device does come with different variants, such as one with stainless steel case and another titanium model. The price of the smartwatch will start from $890 (AED 3269), depending on the type of build and straps used. The device will only hit the stores after July 2017.
