Android Wear 2.0 update rolling out for the Huawei Watch

Montblanc launches its first smartwatch, the Montblanc Summit

According to Montblanc, the release of Android Wear 2.0 presented the flawless opportunity for it to launch a smartwatch since the latest version of Google's wearable platform played much better with iOS (thus increasing the Summit's potential customer base).

The Summit will sport a circular 1.39-inch (400 x 400) AMOLED display and will come pre-loaded with Android Wear 2.0. The price of the smartwatch will start from $890 (AED 3269), depending on the type of build and straps used. In keeping with this, the Summit comes with a selection of exclusive watch faces - primarily digital versions of classic Montblanc designs, as also the odd new one with stopwatch functionality and such stuff.

Joining Tag Heuer's recently announced Connected Modular 45 at the luxury end of the market, the Montblanc Summit shares similar specs to its competitor's offerings. The Summit is contained within a 46mm steel or titanium case 12.5mm in depth.

The device comes with a 300 mAh battery and it feature an IP68 rating for water resistance, this means it is water resistant rather than fully waterproof.

The Huawei Watch to be finally getting the update, launched in 2015 it was one of the few smartwatches to be running on the Snapdragon 400 with 512MB of RAM. Montblanc opted to omit Global Positioning System and LTE from the Summit, meaning no detailed run tracking or untether smartwatch use, and there's no NFC for Android Pay here.

The Montblanc Summit is available in four different case materials and styles - black PVD-coated stainless steel, two-tone stainless steel case with black PVD-coated steel bezel, all-stainless steel with satin finish, and grade 5 titanium.

On the rear of the watch is an integrated heart-rate monitor alongside a Montblanc sports watches face that shows daily fitness progress in the shape of a summit. TAG Heuer's new smartwatches have it beat on sky-high pricing, but not by much.
