If you were suing for this 2016 in terms of smartwatches and wearables was a little variety, Qualcomm has stepped front to promote it, although it will continue to walk hand in hand with Android.
Has the new chip Snapdragon Wear 2100 and promises a great leap forward, at least in numbers. It is 30% smaller , which should facilitate the emergence of new less bulky designs, and consumes 25% less battery . It also ensures that its integrated sensors also spend less and read more precise movements.
Technical Specifications Wear Snapdragon 2100
It is made up of four Cortex A7 cores at 1.2GHz with Adreno 304 GPU with support for OpenGL ES 3.0 one of the most basic of which still driving. As for connectivity, developers will be able to choose between two blocks and in both cases, again, promoting a low energy consumption and constant activity.
Are variants tethered via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, that is, they will rely on a smartphone to run, and wireless data networks, both 4G / LTE and 3G (LTE FDD & TDD, WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, CDMA EV-DO & 1x and 2G GSM / EDGE), allowing you to answer calls, send messages or listening to music streamed from the device itself.
Qualcomm puts the goal posts for manufacturers to provide answers to two of the most common demands, sleeker designs and more autonomy . But most interesting it can be checked whether these sensors measure up against a range of gestures that continues to grow, as has been seen with Android Wear 1.4 .
He says the press that this year will be sold over 50 wearables with your chip, but only LG has accompanied them in this presentation. Words, because he has not transcended any invite us to believe that demonstration. The vice president of the South Korean company, David Yoon, said it will launch the first smartwatches and other wearables equipped with Snapdragon 2100 Wear this year, and will give good example of innovations allowed.
Wear Snapdragon platform
The SoC arrives with his own Snapdragon platform Wear , which is nothing more than a set of tools and software that facilitate the development of all types of wearables. They also expect cost savings while maintaining the same architectural design.
But, basically, the key is that both the chip and platform have been developed to run under the operating system Google because It includes support for both Android Wear and Android .
The Snapdragon 400 processor has been so far the dance partner of Android Wear. We must thank veteran everything is born to his shelter in recent years thanks to its flexibility and its versions. But it had been designed for mobile and wearables would need their own.
The promise of Qualcomm is rewarding because it can provide scope for manufacturers to innovate in design and functionality without much concern for autonomy, or even the opposite. It is easy to foresee that the vast majority of smartwatches coming months will bring integrated and hopefully increase the independence of these devices and phones. Now it is the turn of Google, which opens once
