Snapdragon Wear 2100 Promises Better Battery Life For Wearables

The hype for wearables has died down substantially, but developments like these should make them interesting again. Qualcomm has introduced a new smartwatch SoC that is not only smaller but provides more juice for future smartwatches and other wearables.

Snapdragon Wear 2100 comes in two versions: one works via tethered Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and the other uses 3G / 4G. Both of them will be 30 percent smaller than the Snapdragon 400. Snapdragon Wear 2100 should enable new, thinner, sleeker designs. It needs 25 percent less power than the Snapdragon 400 across tethered and connected use cases, allowing for longer day of use battery life.
