What you need to know

  • Montblanc Summit 3 arrives with Wear OS 3.
  • It’s the first non-Samsung smartwatch to ship with Google’s Wear OS 3 platform.
  • The smartwatch also features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 4100+ chipset.

The Montblanc Summit 3 is the first non-Samsung smartwatch to ship with Wear OS 3. The latest operating system was announced at Google I/O in collaboration with Samsung last year, but we have yet to receive hardware running the “stock” Wear OS 3, at least until now.

Montblanc has posted a few ‘How-to’ videos (via 9to5Google) on its YouTube channel, showcasing tutorials on using its new Wear OS 3 smartwatch and highlighting its features. The Summit 3 has many options to play around with, like watch face customizations and health features like heart rate and blood oxygen monitoring. However, the key takeaway of the Summit 3 is, of course, the Wear OS 3 UI.
