Following on from the success of their Summit 2 smartwatch, the German luxury goods maker Montblanc has launched a more streamlined version called Montblanc Summit Lite. Named after its lightweight design, the Summit Lite is cheaper than its predecessors, the Summit 2 and the Summit 2+.
As described in its website, “The Montblanc Summit Lite smartwatch is Montblanc's proposition for those who want to maximize their performance and prioritize a healthy and active lifestyle. It’s set of Montblanc proprietary activity apps paired with its lightweight materials distinguish the Summit Lite from the classical Summit smartwatch range. With this addition, the Montblanc Summit Lite watch opens up new opportunities for clients to focus on health and well-being.”
The design is the same as the other two Montblanc smartwatches with a round case and a crown and pushers to make it look like a mechanical watch. The 43mm case is crafted out of recycled aluminum, while the watch arrives in sustainable packaging made from 100% paper, reports LuxuryLaunches.
The watch is powered by Google’s Wear OS and uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100. It has 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage. It tracks your heart rate, sleep, and stress. It has a barometer, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and ambient light. There’s also a microphone but no speakers.
“With the renewed focus on health, fitness, mindfulness, and wellbeing we are witnessing today, our goal was to create a smartwatch that had just the right tools to support its owner throughout the day, in a way that was instinctive and effortless for today’s business lifestyle customer. Named Summit Lite after its lightweight design, it aligns with its wearer’s activities and is built for high performing individuals who are constantly on the move and blend their workout routine with their work routine,” explains Nicolas Baretzki, Montblanc CEO.
The display is 1.19” AMOLED with Gorilla Cover Glass. Other features: Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz), Waterproof, GPS, and NFC.
The Summit Lite is handsome in its design and its retail price of 815 Euros is surprisingly affordable.
