Montblanc’s newest premium smartwatch, the Summit 2, is now available for purchase, which has given a closer look into its specifications and features. It is the first smartwatch powered by Qualcomm’s long-awaited Snapdragon Wear 3100 – a chipset specially designed for wearables that offers a long list of new features, including a much-improved battery life. The new smartwatch has retained the classy styling of the original Montblanc Summit, which was introduced last year. However, the watchmaker has updated the new iteration with quite a few functional and aesthetic upgrades. The Montblanc Summit 2 is available in four cases and 11 strap options, along with 1,000-plus watch faces. Montblanc is claiming it will give the users an option to customize the smartwatch in 70,000 different combinations.
While the original Summit features a single crown, the new Montblanc smartwatch features two buttons on either side of that crown which should make it much easier to control the functions. The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 has massively improved the battery life of the watch when compared with its predecessor. Montblanc claims that the new Summit 2 can run for an entire week on a single charge when it’s on “time only” mode, which is truly impressive. In addition to the new chipset, the smartwatch comes with Google’s revamped Wear OS, which promises to offer more functionality, more information in an easier-to-use interface. The new Montblanc Summit 2 is available for purchase carrying a price tag of $995.
