This is Montblanc's luxurious take on a Wear OS smartwatch

It was a little over a year ago when Montblanc announced its luxury Android wearable, the Summit. Over a year later, the firm is announcing the successor to the Summit, featuring Wear OS and Qualcomm's newly announced Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor.

Despite multiple outlets reporting on the watch, there doesn't seem to be many details when it comes to the specifications of the Summit 2. If anything is for certain, you can bet it'll be in the same luxury category of its predecessor, which will mean that it will be a costly purchase. Last year's Summit had a retail price of $890 but offered quite a bit when it came to materials and design. Unfortunately, there was a lot to be desired when it came to the actual specifications of the watch, as it did not have NFC or GPS.

That could all change for the Summit 2, when speaking with Engadget, Montblanc CEO Nicolas Baretski stated that the new watch is "built for travel, fitness or exploration", which could mean that it will include some of the things that were missing in the previous model. Unfortunately, we probably won't know more until it's released in October.
