Another new smartwatch is upon us, one that Google told us was on the horizon – Montblanc has announced the Summit 3, a high-end Wear OS watch that runs Qualcomm’s latest chip and also happens to have Wear OS 3. This one is noteworthy, even if the price is (likely) out of the range for most of us.
At the time of this posting, a lot about this watch is still a mystery. Before publishing, we were waiting to hear back on exact pricing in the US and what the specs look like. We have yet to hear back, so we’ll update this as more info comes in.
What we know for now is that the Montblanc Summit 3 is official, is powered by a Snapdragon Wear 4100+, has a bigger battery than the previous generation Summit 2, comes in three different colorways, and again, runs Wear OS 3.
The three colors can be seen below, including a Titanium Black, Titanium Bicolor, and Titanium Grey. Each watch comes with both leather and rubber straps to help you tackle the day.
As for the rest of the story, again, we’ve been waiting to hear back and Montblanc has yet to post all of the details. We know there are a bunch of new custom watchfaces, sports and fitness tracking (including SpO2), and all the Google apps, like Google Maps.
Below is a look at a bit of the OS, since Wear OS 3 is a huge part of the why this watch is interesting. Outside of Samsung and the Galaxy Watch 4, there are no other watches running Wear OS 3. To see it now arriving on another watch with so little detail available is kind of weird. We should know more shortly.
Overall, the watch looks nice, right?
