Google’s new smartwatch operating system was released in August 2021. It promised to improve battery life, speed up work, smoother animations, improvements in the interface, and more. And since then, there are still only two watches that work with it, and both belong to Samsung – Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. Finally, someone intervened in these statistics.
Montblanc is preparing to sell the new model The Summit 3, which will be released on July 15 and will work with a new operating system from Google. The watch will offer the user the usual set of features: counting steps and monitoring activity during training, a sleep tracker, and measuring blood oxygen saturation. Of course, the watch can pay for goods and services, it supports Google services and the ability to download applications. Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 Plus will be responsible for performance here.
But since it is more of an image brand, such a model will cost a lot of money – €1250 (twice as expensive as, for example, Apple Watch). With each watch, the user will receive two straps: leather and rubber. The body of the device can be black or silver, depending on the color combinations of the straps.
These watches will be Samsung’s first alternative with Wear OS 3. In addition, competitors will include the long-awaited watch from Google itself, the new Fitbit, as well as Mobvoi and Fossil, has promised to update operating systems on existing models. The support service of the latter even mentioned that the update will be released in June or July this year.
