Montblanc brings its luxury Summit 2+ smartwatch with LTE to Verizon
Earlier this year in March, German luxury goods manufacturer Montblanc unveiled the Summit 2+ smartwatch. The WearOS-powered watch followed Montblanc’s Summit 2 from 2018, and it featured the same design as its predecessor. However, the new smartwatch featured a slightly larger 43.5mm case, a bigger 440mAh battery, and LTE support. At the time, Montblanc had announced that the watch would be available through Verizon in the US and Orange/Vodafone in Europe. But since its launch, the watch has only been available on Orange in Europe. Months after the official announcement, US residents can now finally purchase the Summit 2+ through Verizon.
The Montblanc Summit 2+ features a 1.28-inch AMOLED display, and it’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC with eSIM support for 4G LTE connectivity. Although the luxury smartwatch is running on an older chip, it offers most of the features that you’d find on a modern WearOS smartwatch, including calling/messaging support, music streaming, and more. On top of that, it offers a variety of fitness features like heart rate monitoring, stress level tracking, a dedicated Workout Coach app with VO2 max monitoring, etc.
The Montblanc Summit 2+ also features NFC for payments via GPay, and it includes an outdoor toolbox with a compass, speedometer, altimeter, and barometer for adventurous users. While the smartwatch works with both Android and iOS devices, it requires a Verizon smartphone to offer LTE connectivity.
Pricing & Availability
The Montblanc Summit 2+ will be available on Verizon’s website starting today. You can get the smartwatch for its full retail price of $1170 or you can opt-in for a $48.75 per month installment plan (24 monthly payments). Verizon is also offering a discount of $200 if you purchase an Android smartphone along with the watch. The Summit 2+ is available in a single 1GB RAM/8GB storage variant with 4 case color and strap options — Golden Steel case with Leather strap, Bronze Steel case with Leather strap, Steel case with Leather strap, and Black Steel case with Rubber strap.
