It is almost a year since Google launched Wear OS 3 software. And since then, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 is the only product to run on it. Last year, Google announced to bring it to the selected Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered smartwatches. Now, we are heading to the second half of this year, but there is no news of release for other watches. Though older models may receive it later, one new smartwatch is going to launch with Wear OS 3 skin.
As per 9to5google, Montblanc Summit 3 will be the first non-Samsung smartwatch to run on Wear OS 3. The company has teased Summit 3 but didn’t mention anything about the Wear OS version. The smartwatch is still not on the market, so we are not for sure.
The Summit 3 watch will have a circular display with blood oxygen levels, sleep tracking, and plenty of sports modes. In terms of physical design, it carries a 42mm case, titanium body, and rotating crown with two physical buttons. It will launch with three color options – Black, Grey & Biocolor.
The 9to5google has come to this conclusion as it found some exclusive features of Wear OS 3 on the wearable. It mentions turn-by-turn direction in Google Maps will be supported on Montblanc Summit 3. It is a new version of Google Maps that only supports Wear OS 3.
The next watch will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100+ chipset. It has been priced at $1290 and will be available on market from July 15. If the smartwatch launches before Fossil releases Wear OS 3 on Gen 6, then Summit 3 will become the first non-Samsung watch to get the update.
