At IFA 2018 last month, Google announced a big redesign for Wear OS. And moving forward, watches launching with Qualcomm’s just-announced Snapdragon Wear 3100 will feature the new look. At the chipmaker’s event today, we had our first chance to use a reference device running the new chip and the redesigned Wear OS to see Google’s new smartwatch OS up close. Together, they give us a good glimpse at the next generation of Wear OS devices.
After months of anticipation, Qualcomm finally made its new Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset official, and it’s a huge deal for the Wear OS world — mostly because it’s been years since the last chip. We’ve already covered Qualcomm’s big announcement, but there are a few tidbits you might have missed, so let’s take a look at a few smaller, but important details.
Qualcomm’s next wearable processor is set to power the upcoming generation of Wear OS smartwatches. In addition to detailing specs, performance, and new features this morning, the chipmaker announced that Fossil Group, Montblanc, and Louis Vuitton will launch the first Snapdragon Wear 3100 devices.
