Montblanc Summit 2 is the first Wear OS watch with the Snapdragon Wear 3100

By | 10th September 2018

You'll be able to buy the watch this October for an unknown price.

Today at an event in San Francisco, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon Wear 3100 as its next-generation processor for Google's Wear OS. A few partners have already been confirmed to be working on hardware with the new chip, including Fossil and Louis Vuitton, but Montblanc will be the very first company to release a 3100-powered watch.

Following up on the Summit that was released last year, Montblanc's Snapdragon Wear 3100 smartwatch is the Summit 2.

The Montblanc Summit 2 is set to launch this October. In addition to the new processor, the Summit 2 will also ship with Wear OS's all-new UI that puts a bigger focus on Google Fit, Google Assistant, and easier navigation.

The original Summit skipped out on NFC, GPS, and waterproofing despite its monstrous $890 price tag, so hopefully the Summit 2 offers these features. Pricing and other details for the new wearable are still a mystery, but they should be revealed soon.
