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.
Do you plan on getting the Summit 2?
