Swiss watchmakers have more often been the victims of progress than its champion. But it’s exactly because of this old-world disposition that companies like Montblanc have a distinct advantage over many smartwatch makers. A not-insignificant chunk of the smartwatch market wants the functionality of an Apple Watch but isn’t willing to surrender their wrists to something without the pedigree of a heritage watch brand. It’s for those people that Montblanc made the Summit 2.
A marriage of the design codes of the 1858 Collection and modern hardware from Qualcomm, this new touchscreen smartwatch from Montblanc offers both traditional luxury and contemporary functionality. The Summit 2 boasts a weeklong battery life, an exclusive running coach application, Google Pay and even an app designed to help mitigate jet lag, among other things. And what’s more, the watch is highly customizable, with more than 1,000 different watch faces, 4 types of cases, and 11 strap options.
