After the unexpected success of the TAG Heuer Connected, more luxury fashion brands started to enter the smart wearable market. Today we find out about the German brand Montblanc and the introduction of its first smartwatch, the rather basic Summit.

Montblanc Summit's list of specs includes a 1.39-inch, 400X400-pixel AMOLED display, the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor that will soon be rebranded as Qualcomm Mobile, 512 MB RAM, 4 GB internal storage. Although it is rated IP68 for its water resistance and features a barometer, microphone, and a heart rate monitor, this smart wearable has no GPS, no NFC chip (meaning no Android Pay support), and no cellular connectivity.

This premium watch runs Android Wear 2.0 and can be acquired in one of the four body variants (silver titanium, black or silver PVD-coated steel, dual-color steel with a silver body and a black watch face) and rubber, leather, or alligator leather bands. The prices start at $890 USD and can go up to $1,070 USD. The UK and the US markets will get it in May, exclusively via Mr Porter for the first two weeks, while other areas will follow by the end of July.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
