The first watch powered by Snapdragon Wear 3100, the Montblanc Summit 2, has arrived

 

The Summit 2 smartwatch from upscale brand Montblanc is now available for $995. The new Snapdragon Wear 3100 CPU from Qualcomm is included in this gadget for the first time.

The device’s specs have been significantly improved over those of its predecessor. Montblanc has increased the water resistance from IP68 to 5 ATM, increased the on-board storage memory for apps and music from 4GB to 8GB, and included built-in GPS and NFC for contactless payments. This is in addition to the first generation watch’s heart rate sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, and altimeter. The upgrades imply that the smartwatch will now track your fitness considerably more effectively.

We wrote in September about Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset. The chipset has better always-on watch faces, sports watch-focused modifications, and low-power modes to extend the battery life of Wear OS devices. The first timepiece to gain from these improvements is the Montblanc Summit 2.

The premium timepiece is thinner but has a smaller design than its predecessor (42.2 mm vs. 46 mm) and (14.3 mm vs. 12.5mm). The back is constructed of glass and fiberglass resin, and the front is made of black DLC stainless steel. There are 11 different 22mm strap variations available for the watch, including calfskin, steel, rubber, and nylon.

Do not worry about scratching the display on the expensive timepiece. The Montblanc Summit 2’s 1.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen display is protected by scratch-resistant sapphire, taking a lead from the Apple Watch Series 4. A spinning crown and two programmable pushers are located to its right.

The system comes with all the bells and whistles that Google’s Wear OS 2.0 has to offer. This now includes brand-new, original apps from Montblanc, such as the Running Coach app, created in association with Firstbeat. This provides a variety of goods, such as:

The fitness score, which ranges from 0 to 100, measures changes in your cardiorespiratory fitness using an AI and your VO2max.

Training load: This displays the physiological effects of all of your recorded activities over a seven-day period.

“Training effect” is a metric that measures how your exercise will affect the growth of your capacity for aerobic performance.

Real-time training advice: This gives you data while you’re running and advises you on how hard to work.

Setting a goal in the Running Coach app allows you to access daily training suggestions that are personalized just for you.

For individuals who move across time zones, there is also the Timeshifter app.

Battery life has not really improved despite the upgraded chip. This is most likely a result of the spec bump. You may anticipate getting a little over a day in full smartwatch mode between charges. If you choose a mode that merely displays the time and date, this can be prolonged by up to 5 days.

“Summit 2 is a flexible companion developed for urban explorers, business travelers, and performance seekers aiming to push boundaries in whatever they do,” said Nicolas Baretzki, CEO of Montblanc. “Built for travel, fitness, or adventure.”

The study found that high achievers desire to be connected at all times with simple access to useful features and apps that enable them to always remain ahead and be productive on-the-go while still appreciating the experience of wearing a good timepiece.

We’re assuming you’ve been saving your pennies. The unisex timepiece retails for close to $1,000, just like the first edition. Those with large budgets should definitely consider this! Visit montblanc.com to find out more.
