Montblanc Summit luxury smartwatch goes on sale in the US for $890


The luxury watchmakers have decided to support Google's Android Wear, so it's no surprise that we're seeing lots of expensive smartwatches getting released in the first half of the year.

After TAG Heuer, the next big name in the luxury watch industry, Montblanc is bringing its Android Wear smartwatch to the United States. If you haven't read our previous report about the Montblanc Summit, here is a short recap that will get you up to speed.

Obviously, the smartwatch runs Android Wear 2.0 and comes equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset inside. Also, it packs 512MB RAM and 4GB internal memory. It does feature Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, but it lacks NFC (Near Field Communication) and LTE support.

As you can see from the pictures attached in the gallery, the Montblanc Summit has a rotating crown and it's rather bulky at 46mm. Depending on the materials used, you can purchase the luxurious smartwatch for up to $1,070, but the price goes as low $890.

Plastic bottom, yet no wireless charging? I like Montblanc, but this is an overused design in the smartwatch industry, as it looks a lot like the LG Urbane.
