Qualcomm Introduces Snapdragon Wear 1100 For Targeted-Purpose Wearables
Qualcomm has added to its Snapdragon Wear line-up, introducing the Snapdragon Wear 1100 processor at Computex 2016.
Qualcomm states the Snapdragon Wear 1100 is “for the fast-growing targeted-purpose wearables segments, such as connected kid and elderly watches, fitness trackers, smart headsets and wearable accessories”.
Joining the Snapdragon Wear product family, it complements the Snapdragon Wear 2100, which is designed for multi-purpose wearables.
“Snapdragon Wear 1100 is designed for the next generation of targeted-purpose wearable segments, where consumers are demanding a smaller size, longer battery life, smarter sensing, secure location and an always-connected experience,” Qualcomm states.
Qualcomm states that it is decked out with the low-power feature Power Save Mode, along with next-gen Cat 1 modem with LTE/3G global band support.
Among its other features are an integrated applications processor for Linux-based applications and scales to support voice, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and it incorporates the Qualcomm iZat integrated location engine, offering “enhanced accuracy and power optimisation”.
A hardware cryptographic engine, HW random number generator and TrustZone are integrated into the chipset, supporting “a highly secure environment for consumers”.
Qualcomm states that the Snapdragon Wear 1100 is commercially available, shipping today.
