Who doesn’t like expensive smartwatches? Well, I don’t but that’s mainly because I can’t afford one. It’s a sad life I live but you don’t have to! One of the most premium smartwatches is coming from none other than popular watch-maker Montblanc.
The company is introducing the Montblanc Summit 2 powered by Snapdragon Wear 3100. Just last month Qualcomm revealed its Snapdragon Wear 3100 for the next-generation of Wear OS devices.
The new hardware is introduced for an always-on mode and better battery life. The very first smartwatch to use Snapdragon Wear 3100 is Montblanc Summit 2. The company usually creates luxury pens and some types of jewelry. This is the second smartwatch created by Montblanc. The Summit 2 comes with a 42mm unisex case.
It has a 1.2-inch AMOLED display with 327 PPI with a sapphire crystal. The watch is 14.3mm thick with 22mm strap. Of course, the straps are interchangeable. Montblanc offers leather, nylon, and Milanese.
There is a sizeable rotating crown on the right side and has two buttons above and below. These buttons can be used to launch various apps.
The case back comes with steel, glass, and resin and a heart rate monitor. The watch features magnetic charging pins. Apart from the Snapdragon Wear 3100 the Summit 2 features a 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.
Summit 2 also has NFC for Google Pay, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, and Wi-Fi. As mentioned above, the watch has much better battery life compared to the original Summit. According to Montblanc the battery life of the Summit 2 allows it to last for a one-full day on a complete charge. However, you can switch to the new “Time Only Mode” for an extra 4-5 days.
The new mode is called a QC1110 ultra-low-power co-processor that deals with the display and sensor co-processing. The Montblanc Summit 2 features Wear OS 2.1, Google Assistant, Google Fit, and much more.
As for the price, it is $955 and you can get it from the official website.
