Montblanc Summit Puts Android Wear In A Stylish Swiss Watch


You want a smartwatch with some Swiss pedigree, but aren’t quite onboard with wearables going north of four figures. Fortunately, Montblanc’s got you covered with the Summit, a new smartwatch bearing the same refinements that you’ll find in the outfit’s pens and mechanical timepieces.

Based on Montblanc’s 1858 collection, the watch combines timeless design with contemporary wearable tech, allowing you to enjoy Android Wear in a package that wears well with both casual and formal outfits alike. Most importantly, it looks like a real watch, ensuring you actually look like you’re wearing jewelry and not another piece of gadget.

The Montblanc Summit has a stainless steel case housing a 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen panel that can accommodate two points of contact at a time. Unlike other smartwatches, it sports a domed sapphire crystal glass and a case that’s just 12.5mm thick, so the aesthetics resemble regular watches a whole lot better. It comes with the usual roster of sensors, along with a heart rate monitor, so this thing will capably handle all your activity tracking needs. Tech details include 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a 300mAh battery good for a single day of use, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, and magnetic charging support.

Features include four case sizes (44mm to 47mm), IP68 water resistance, and a fixed stainless steel crown. It comes in four case finishes, each one with a selection of straps.

Pricing for the Montblanc Summit starts at $890.
