Qualcomm has unveiled its latest wearable processor just recently and it is called the Snapdragon Wear 3100 – it’s the successor of the 2100 model that is found in a large number of smartwatches currently available on the market.
The new chipset has a dedicated low-power co-processor that will tackles background tasks that waste more energy, such as monitoring your heart rate or keeping track of your location. Thanks to this improvement, we can expect more battery life, around four to twelve hours more than before, depending on how the smartwatch will be used.
Moments after the chipset was unveiled, Qualcomm also announced that the first ever Wear OS device that will come with it will be the Montblanc Summit 2.
The press event was not very generous with the details but it’s rumored the watch will be full of Wear OS features that will help the user organize as well as turn into a useful tool for all the runners and swimmers out there.
It will appear on the market in October and will most likely cost pretty close to $1000, so if you’re interested, you should start saving up.
