Last year Montblanc launched the Summit smartwatch and it looks like they are back this year with its successor, the Summit 2. However not only is the Summit 2 Montblanc’s latest smartwatch, but it will also be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset that should in theory help with battery life.
Montblanc, for those unfamiliar, is a Swiss company that specializes in luxury products, such as writing instruments where their fountain pens are actually quite well-known to those who collect them. The Summit 2 seems to share some of that luxury traits with a 1.2-inch AMOLED sapphire crystal display along with an assortment of leather and nylon bands to choose from.
The smartwatch will also feature 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, NFC for Google Pay, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi, and there’s a new “Time Only Mode” that will allow users to use the watch for an extra 4-5 days, although as the name implies this will pretty much turn the smartwatch into a regular watch.
As for pricing, the Summit 2 is more expensive than its predecessor and will cost $995 versus the Summit which costs about $100 less. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, then head on over to Montblanc’s website to get your hands on it.
