Features Compared

  1. Design
  2. These two luxury smartwatches both have really spectacular designs that look both sophisticated and elegant. However, looking at the Tag Heuer connected 41, it looks more sophisticated, sleek and fascinating. It has an engraved Arabic numeral up to 60minutes on the stainless steel bezel which gives it a more outstanding design than Montblanc summit 2. The Tag Heuer connected 41 with 13.2mm thickness size is slimmer than Summit 2 which is 14.3mm thick and also has a bigger case size measuring 42mm.

    While the Connected 41 has just one single push button, Montblanc Summit 2 has three buttons, two push buttons and a digital crown button making the interface much easier to navigate. Though we couldn’t ascertain the actual weight of the Connected 41 as of the time of writing this post, it should be actually lighter in weight. It has a body made of grade 5 silver titanium while Montblanc Summit 2 has a DLC stainless steel case and all fiberglass back.

    Overall, Tag Heuer Connected 41 has a much better design.

  3. Fitness Tracking
  4. The Tag Heuer Connected 41 is not a perfect choice for fitness tracking considering that it lacks a heart rate monitor. However the Montblanc Summit 2 with all the standard sensors built-in, HRM inclusive is a much better choice for a complete fitness tracking experience.

  5. Battery Life
  6. Any of these two smartwatches will let you go a full day on a single charge which is still within the industry average of 1-2 days. However, Montblanc Summit 2 with Snapdragon 3100, a relatively new chip released by Qualcomm which promises a longer battery life seems to have a slight edge.

  7. Platform/OS
  8. Both of these two watches run on Wear OS, however, they are powered by different chips. Montblanc Summit 2 has inside the Snapdragon 3100 chip which promises a longer battery life and more accurate fitness tracking readings. Montblanc Summit 2 is one of the first to run this chip. On the other hand Tag Heuer is powered by a newer version of Intel that increases the efficiency of the device greatly. Although, there is no standard way to say which chip is better. However, overall these two are powered by advanced chipsets.

  9. Price

Let’s reemphasize that these two smartwatches are luxury smartwatches. It is not for everyone, alright. So if you have to buy any of these, then you will be ready to spend at least $1000 or more. That said, the Montblanc summit 2 costs about $1000 while Tag Heuer connected 41 costs quiet more about $1400 or more depending on the material.

Which is Better?

Any of these smartwatches will serve perfectly fine. However, if you are after a more complete smartwatch then Montblanc Summit 2 will be a perfect choice. It has more features that let you track a whole lot of fitness activities considering that it has an automatic heart rate sensor which Tag Heuer connected 41 lacks.

However, Tag Heuer Connected 41 is a better choice based on better design. It has a more sophisticated design, so you can be sure to get that much needed prestige. It is the perfect choice for a luxury smartwatch.
