Luxury watch brand Montblanc announced its Summit 2+ smartwatch back in March. The Wear OS watch is now available to order from Verizon for an eye-boggling $1,170. It doesn't offer much that really stands out except for two things: built-in LTE connectivity and a price tag that's higher than anybody should probably pay. Read More
With the Summit 2, Montblanc was the first company to release a smartwatch powered by Snapdragon's latest Wear 3100 chipset. The luxury brand just unveiled an updated timepiece, which now comes with built-in LTE, along with other improvements. Read More
There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to the ANC headphones category. Even though Bose and Sony offer the most popular products, luxury brand Montblanc just unveiled a new piece of tech that's about $200 more expensive than its counterparts. At this price, it offers premium built quality and Google Fast Pair, which set it apart from the competition. Read More
2017 has seen a sort of rebirth for Android Wear. Between v2.0 of the wearable OS and the LG Watch Style and Sport, the platform is still struggling to make headway.

Tag Heuer recently announced a new absurdly-expensive Android Wear watch, the Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 (that's a mouthful). Now Montblanc, a well-known German manufacturer for luxury watches and other items, has announced its first smartwatch - the Summit.
Available in a variety of cases and straps, the Summit reminds me a bit of the LG G Watch Urbane in terms of design. It's definitely a large watch, with a case diameter of 46mm. While on the topic of design, even though it looks like the Summit has a digital crown, that's just a button.
As for the hardware, it's rocking a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. Read More
