The Mont Blanc Summit joins the list of smartwatches we can’t afford


it does look awesome though.

Joining the ranks of Tag Heuer in the smartwatch space is Mont Blanc, who has just introduced the Summit, the company’s first Android Wear smartwatch. Featuring a luxurious design that’s expected from the company, it’s one of the pricier smartwatches available – but it’s a definite looker.

Mont Blanc mentioned that the Summit’s design is based on its “1858 collection and the heritage of Minerva as one of Switzerland’s most revered timekeeping specialists.” The Summit features stainless steel and titanium cases along with several bands made with leather, calfskin and even alligator.

Specs-wise the Summit has been fitted with a 1.39-inch AMOLED display with a 400-by-400 pixel resolution. Along with Android Wear 2.0, the Summit also features exclusive watch faces from Mont Blanc including integration with Google Assistant. The smartwatch also comes with a barometer, gyroscope, heart rate monitor, accelerometer and an electric compass. It’s also rated IP68 for water resistance.

It does look like one of the better-spec’d smartwatches out there and actually one of the best looking – but with a starting prices of $890 for the stainless steel version and $1020 for the titanium version, it ranks as of the more premium options when it comes to price.

The Mont Blanc Summit will initially be available in the UK and US this May.
