The new Montblanc Summit smartwatch is scheduled to arrive in October, and what we already know is that it uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC. Unfortunately, most other details — including its price — have yet to be revealed, but it will probably cost more than US$1,500 (the launch price of the model currently on the market).

Those who are looking for a luxury smartwatch might want to wait until October since the second-generation Montblanc Summit has just been uncovered and it sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC

According to Qualcomm, the aforementioned chipset allows for improved autonomy, providing improved NFC and a GPS version with enhanced battery-saving capabilities. When compared to other similar wearables, the Montblanc Summit 2 uses 67 percent less power in ambient mode, an improvement that leads to 4 to 12 hours of additional autonomy.

Sadly, there is no information about other technical details, but — in addition to the above — the Snapdragon Wear 3100 also features 4G LTE connectivity. Other than that, we should get ready for a luxury wearable made using premium materials and a price to match. Since the Montblanc Summit launched with a price tag of US$1,500, we can only hope that its successor will not go above the US$2,000 mark, but this is something that we will discover next month. However, those who still want to grab the original can get it right now for less than US$1,000.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
