Not a fan of Tag Heuer’s latest Connected Modular 45 smartwatch? Here’s another luxury smartwatch for you to consider. Montblanc recently introduced its first ever smartwatch called the Montblanc Summit.
The Montblanc Summit is just like a typical smartwatch. It has a 35mm round AMOLED display fitted in a 46mm case. Beneath that, it features a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. Other specs include a heart rate monitor, IP68 water resistance that is good for washing hands and exposure to the rain, “all-day” 300mAh battery life, and as expects, it runs on Android Wear 2.0, making it compatible with phones running on Android 4.3 or higher, and iOS 9.0 and higher.
But what makes the Montblanc Summit stand out isn’t just the hardware. The luxury brand says that the Summit features cutting-edge technology, and classic Montblanc design. It uses the same design language as Montblanc’s 1858 analogue collection, and is made with only premium materials.
The Montblanc Summit is made with the finest stainless steel and top graded titanium. Unlike Tag Heuer’s highly customisable Connected Modular 45, the Montblanc Summit only has four bodies to pick from – silver and black PVD-coated stainless steel models, a silver titanium model, and a dual-color steel version with silver body and black watch face. As for watch bands, you can opt for rubber, leather or alligator leather bands. Montblanc also uses sapphire glass, with a chamfered edge all around for a more premium look.
The Montblanc Summit starts from US$890 – that’s about RM4,000 for a stainless steel model. The most expensive titanium version goes all the way up to US$1,070 (about RM4,800) when paired with the most premium alligator leather watch strap.
