It looks like designer brands are getting into the wireless audio space. These wireless headphones from Montblanc will cost you $600 … and if you pair it with their newest Summit2+ smartwatch, it’ll set you back a whopping USD $1,170!
Taken from Engadget … Montblanc is relatively seasoned when it comes to making smartwatches. After launching its debut connected watch in 2017, the company was the first to ship a device with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100 in the Summit 2. So it’s no surprise that Montblanc has an updated version of its luxury smartwatch to announce. What’s unexpected, though, is that the luxury house is also launching a new set of wireless headphones.
Let’s start with the smartwatch. The Summit 2+ is a $1,170 Wear OS device that comes with LTE connectivity onboard. It bears a striking resemblance to Montblanc’s earlier smartwatches, except it’s now slightly bigger with a 43.5mm case compared to the older 42mm size. There’s also a new vintage design available with a bronze case and 22mm green strap. Given it has to house cellular radios and onboard GPS, the slight increase here is reasonable. When I strapped on a demo unit of the Summit 2+, it did feel chunky on my relatively small wrist, but it didn’t feel uncomfortable.
