Wear OS 3 is the biggest overhaul I’ve ever seen in Google’s smartwatch operating system, but it seems to have caused great disappointment as the first and never-before-seen Wear OS 3 watch was the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. is. And Galaxy Watch4 Classic, not compatible with iPhone.
This isn’t a Wear OS 3 limitation, but it seems to be just a limitation Samsung has decided to impose, as Montblanc Summit 3 was recently announced and confirmed to support iOS.
Details of this can be found on the official wearable spec list. Wearable (Opens in a new tab) It’s by a Qualcomm spokesperson and I haven’t created Summit 3, but I’m focusing on the Snapdragon 4100 Plus chipset, so you need to know.
Now, even if you’re an iPhone owner who hates the Apple Watch, you won’t run out of Montblanc Summit 3 and buy it. The price is $ 1,290 / £ 1,105 / AU $ 2,030.
What does it do to justify its price? Montblanc’s name is almost always like a competent wearable with a 1.28 inch 416 x 416 AMOLED screen, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, 5 ATM water resistance, sapphire glass, and a heart rate monitor. You can hear it, but it’s a premium build.
That’s all fine, but in most cases all we care about is the presence of iOS support. This suggests that affordable WearOS 3 watches, including this one, may be available soon.
Analysis: Don’t expect iOS support for Pixel Watch
One of the next big WearOS3 smartwatches we’re looking for is the Google PixelWatch, which may not support iOS.
Google has already made fun of wearables and only lists Android compatibility.To make matters worse, a Google spokeswoman said CNET (Opens in a new tab) That iPhone is not supported.
It seems strange that both Google and Samsung block such a large number of potential viewers, as the Pixel Watch is rumored to use an Exynos chipset like Samsung’s wearables. But that’s just speculation.
But in any case, at this rate, it may still take some time before many of the best smartwatches running WearOS 3 support iOS.
