Posted by at 1:01 am on February 12, 2016


Qualcomm announced Snapdragon Wear, a new platform for wearable devices.

The Snapdragon Wear 2100 system-on-a-chip is the first product in the Snapdragon Wear platform and is meant to improve next-generation smartwatches. The Wear 2100 replaces the Snapdragon 400. The new SoC is 30% smaller than the Snapdragon 400, which can lead to slimmer designs, and reduces power needs by 25%, which can help improve battery life.

The Wear 2100 includes a low-power sensor hub for managing input, and can be paired with WiFi and LTE radios for connectivity. The system-on-a-chip supports Google’s Android Wear operating system, as well as Android itself. Qualcomm sees the Snapdragon Wear 2100 forming the core of advanced smartwatches and basic smartwatches alike, as well as smart bands, smart eyewear, and headsets.

Qualcomm says Snapdragon Wear 2100 is available to its hardware partners immediately.
