Mont Blanc has finally ventured into the word of smartwatches and they have finally unveiled their ‘Summit’ series. The smartwatch is inspired by the Montblanc’s 1858 line where it wants to blend the most cutting edge technology with a traditional timepiece.
The smartwatch is powered by Google’s Android Wear 2.0 and has an AMOLED display and has black PVD-coated case options. The watch has several custom watch faces, which can appeal to different tastes and also has different band options such as leather, rubber or other exotic options. These bands can be easily swapped with minimal effort thanks to the clasp system.
The smartwatch rocks a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor and has 512 MB of RAM, Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth. The watch currently does not have NFC or LTE abilities but it does have more sensors than most Android Wear devices. It even has a compass and a barometer, which you might not find in other smartwatches sporting Android Wear.
The Summit comes preloaded with apps such as Foursquare and Uber; it even has a heart rate sensor for all fitness enthusiasts. This is the first time a luxury watch company has included a heart rate sensor on a smartwatch. The watch can be charged wirelessly with a magnetic dock much like the Galaxy Gear S3 and also has 4GB of internal storage. The Summit is priced at $890 and an Indian launch is set to take place in Mumbai very soon.
