The Montblanc Summit 3 is the only other smartwatch to feature Wear OS 3 other than the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. It’s been almost a year since Google revamped its watch platform. We finally got another wearable that features revamped Wear OS. Unfortunately, it’s not something many people can tolerate.

Montblanc 3 is very expensive At $1,290. It sure looks great, though. The company has now listed the smartwatch and its price on its website, and has also placed a set of how-to videos on Her YouTube channel, giving us a closer look at what Wear OS 3 will look like in a non-Samsung watch. We also got confirmation of Summit 3’s features, which we didn’t previously know when the device was first announced.

The Montblanc Summit 3 gets a 1.28-inch circular AMOLED display with 416 x 416 resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 Plus chip, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, Wi-Fi, and NFC for Google Pay. There are three push buttons on the side, including one on the rotating crown, one programmable, and one for launching apps.

Summit 3 will be compatible with both iOS and Android. This means that even the Pixel Watch can feature iOS compatibility as it will also run on the new Wear OS.

In the box, you get a rubber sports strap, an extra calfskin strap, a charging stand, a USB cable, and some manuals.
