Smartwatches seem to keep going back and you are back in fashion. Now Montblanc has the Summit Lite almost ready, a smartwatch that aims to be somewhat cheaper than usual and with a somewhat more sporty design.
The Summit 2+ was the most expensive Wear OS and they wanted to remedy it
The Summit 2+ de Montblanc was recently released in the US through Verizon. The luxurious smartwatch has a 43.5mm case with a display 1.28-inch AMOLED, and it comes with it Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC from Qualcomm. But despite the modest specs, the Summit 2+ sells for a whopping $ 1,170, which makes it one of the smartwatches Most expensive Wear OS out there. Due to its exorbitant price tag, we don’t expect the Summit 2+ to be a huge hit with buyers, and Montblanc seems to pick up on the same thing. To attract a wider audience, the German luxury goods manufacturer is working on a slightly more affordable smartwatch called Montblanc Summit Lite.
Last month, according to Droid-Life, a new Montblanc smartwatch was certified by the FCC But, at that time, the FCC list had only revealed the nickname “Summit Lite.” Today, Google has updated its catalog of devices in Google play with a new ticket for the Montblanc Summit Lite. The entry sheds more light on the upcoming smartwatch and reveals some of its basic specs.
Features of the new Montblanc Summit Lite
As you can see in the attached screenshot, the Montblanc Summit Lite will work with Wear OS operating system from Google (based on Android 9 Pie), and it will count with 1 GB of RAM, a screen with a resolution of 390×390 and Qualcomm’s APQ8009 processor. However, it is unclear whether the smartwatch will include the Snapdragon Wear 2100 or 3100 SoC. In addition, the list of “system features” confirms that the smartwatch will include GPS and NFC, along with a monitor heart rate, a step counter and a microphone.
The image of the Montblanc Summit Lite included in Google Play shows the smartwatch with a black metal case and a circular display. It has two buttons on the right edge and a rotating crown between the buttons. Also, the watch appears to have a rubber strap rather than a premium leather strap.
For now, there is no confirmation from Montblanc on the Summit Lite. But since the smartwatch has already made its way to Google’s device catalog, it shouldn’t be long before the company makes an official announcement.
