While best known for its fountain pens, Montblanc has been producing high-end watches since 1997. In 2017 — approximately a decade after the luxury German brand introduced its first in-house watch movement — the Hamburg firm released its first-ever smartwatch with the Montblanc Summit, and after several updated iterations of the high-tech timepiece, Montblanc has now revealed its latest generation smartwatch with the new Summit Lite.
Crafted from recycled aluminum, the Summit Lite features a 43mm (1.69”) case with a rotating crown and a trio of physical pushers. Equipped with a high-denier nylon band paired with a stainless steel pin buckle, the Lite-spec Summit’s case also packs a 1.2” AMOLED display with an ultra-hardwearing Gorilla Glass cover. On top of 1GB of memory and 8GBs of storage, the smartwatch also sports a slew of advanced health and sleep tracking capabilities, with a “Cardio Coach” that offers workout suggestions based on your specific fitness level, and dedicated apps for tracking mental and physical exhaustion as well as stress. Each app affords precise feedback to help the watch’s wearer optimize their workout, mental health and mood, and sleep schedule. Available now, the Montblanc Summit Lite Smartwatch is priced at $860.
