When Qualcomm announced its new Snapdragon Wear 3100, we knew that Montblanc was going to being the first manufacturer to use the new processor. There's a 1.2-inch circular AMOLED display that comes in at 390 x 390 pixels, a built-in microphone that allows for voice commands via Google Assistance, a heart rate sensor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. The Snapdragon Wear 3100 is, of course, powering the Summit 2, and as such, you can expect vastly improved battery life (up to a week's worth of use in the Time Only Mode). If you decide to go with the more restrictive "Time Only Mode", that runtime can be extended to as much as 5 days.

There's an array of sensors included as well, like a heart rate sensor, altimeter, accelerometer, gyroscope, and ambient light sensor, and Montblanc has thrown in Global Positioning System, a microphone, and NFC for Google Pay as well. The Montblanc Summit 2 features a 340 mAh battery, which is good for a full day of use in standard Wear OS mode. Connectivity-wise, the Summit 2 offers Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC - no cellular option. In addition, it has exclusive travel functions, including the Timeshifter app, which minimizes jet lag by showing you tips - like, say, when you should drink coffee or expose yourself to a bright light source - on the watch face. The Montblanc Running Coach app will analyze your fitness levels based on VO2 Max and give you a personalized training plan. For those concerned about scratching the display on your fancy new smartwatch, you need not worry at all - the Montblanc Summit 2's display is covered in sapphire crystal (just like the Apple Watch Series 4 Stainless Steel, which starts at $699). There's also a Titanium Sport Edition that comes with a titanium case and rubber strap that focuses on being lightweight and will sell for $1,095.
