Back in September, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon Wear 3100 Platform as the successor to Snapdragon Wear 2100.

The Montblanc Summit 2 is the first device to use the new Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC, which is a quad-core Cortex-A7 design with a huge emphasis on power efficiency.

Aside from the new processor, the Summit 2 also boasts better specs as the RAM has been upgraded from 512MB to 1GB, internal storage is now 8GB compared to 4GB, and the components are housed in a 14.3mm-thick case equipped with a 1.2-inch screen that runs Wear OS 2.1. The wearable also includes a heart rate sensor and Global Positioning System functionality that works even when the device isn't connected to a smartphone.

The Montblanc Summit 2 is available in stainless steel, bicolor steel, steel with a DLC coating, and titanium. Those features include notifications for messages, calls, social media updates, calendar events, news and more, as well as Google Assistant and an always-on mode. A Timeshifter app will help you minimize jet lag by offering advice on caffeine intake as well as the ideal sleeping and light exposure schedule, while a Travel Info app will offer details like currency rates and basic words and phrases for when you're in a foreign country. To add a bit more of a sporty bent, the wearable also features water resistance to 5 ATM (up to 50 meters or 165 feet). The Montblanc Running Coach app will analyze your fitness levels based on VO2 Max and give you a personalized training plan.

The outer case comes in two materials either single or two tone stainless steal, or an even-more-premium titanium model that starts at $1,230 Dollars and weighs 49G instead of 62G. 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.
