The German luxury product specialist Montblanc launched the Smartwatch Summit 2. This smart watch is the successor to the Summit series, which was released in 2017. The overall concept of the Summit series is to bridge the fine watchmaking with the latest tech and it seems like Montblanc is having quite a success with their latest product.
Just like its predecessor, Summit 2 has a circular traditional profile and inspired a collection of labels in 1858 with a 42mm case size. This latest collection is also the first luxury smartwatch to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset, a power-saving chip that is intended for smart watches.
With Snapdragon Wear 3100, the smartwatch is claimed to be able to last 4 to 12 times longer than a smartwatch powered by Snapdragon Wear 2100. However, the length of battery life is also influenced by other factors such as the type of screen used, battery capacity, and device configuration.
There is also specifically for Summit 2, Montblanc offers new features such as longer battery life, only one-week time mode, Google Pay, Timeshifter - application to eliminate jet lag - and the exclusive application of Montblanc Running Coach.
In addition to new processors, the watch, priced at $ 995, also offers better specifications, because the RAM is increased from 512MB to 1GB, the current internal storage is 8GB compared to its 4GB predecessor, and components are placed in a 14.3mm case equipped with a 1.2-inch screen that runs Wear OS 2.1.
Summit 2 also has a built-in clock display configurator that allows more than a thousand clock face combinations and provides a wide selection of cases, such as stainless steel, bicolor steel, and titanium Grade 2 which can all be combined with 11 different strap options.
As for the Sports edition, the addition of Titanium with sporty strap is giving the Summit 2 the overall tough yet sporty look which will be the perfect companion for every sports activity.
