Montblanc Launches its First Android Luxury Smartwatch.
Montblanc is ready to enter the race for adding technology to old school luxury watches. The company joins Tag Heuer by launching its Android Wear watch.
Montblanc Summit will mark the entry of the company into the digital world of timekeeping. The starting price of the watch is set at $890 and $930 if you want to flaunt some ‘sfumato’ leather on your wrist. It exhibits a classy look, which is relatively large, covering a 46mm diameter and 12.5mm height.
It uses Android Wear 2.0 software, which doesn’t support an extra ordinary user interface or other advanced capabilities like; applications, fitness alternatives etc. However, it does provide with sensors like accelerometer, heart rate monitor, barometer, compass and gyroscope. It works on Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 processor, with a 512 MB RAM and has an internal storage of 4 GB. It has 300mAH battery that can be charged by a magnetic cradle. It doesn’t support LTE or GPS, which is a selling point for these watches.
The brand tries to justify its high price by claiming usage of high grade material and care. However it still doesn’t merit with its hefty price of $890. People are concerned about the large size and the expensive price of the Summit, which makes it an array only for the rich. Montblac’s Summit is a luxuriously overwhelming, unconventionally average watch. The watch will be available in US and UK, starting May 2017.
