The wearable device is technology at its most personal. Qualcomm supports some of the most cutting-edge wearable experiences with their advanced technologies in multiple wearable devices. From tracking your health to improving how you stay connected and communicate, they’re pioneering the next frontier of your truly digital lifestyle.
Meet the heart of your next wearable device: the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor. It supports the most important features that the next generation of wearable devices will need—including always-on connectivity, with low power usage for long battery life. And it’s smaller, so devices can be, too
The Snapdragon 2100 processor is 30 percent smaller than our previous-generation wearable processors, enabling thinner, sleeker product designs.
The processor is available in two versions: tethered (which uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi) and connected. In the connected version, the processor’s next-generation LTE modem, which also includes low power Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, is engineered so users can stream music, answer calls, send messages, and much, much more, all directly via their wearable.
The Snapdragon Wear platform is ideally suited for smartwatches, as well as for kid and elder trackers, sports watches, connected headsets, smart eyewear, and more.
The Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor are already in development; smartwatches are expected to be commercially available in the second half of this year.
It seems LG will be the first brand that will launch a Smartwatch using this new chipset in 2016.
