Qualcomm presented its Snapdragon wear line with 2100 system-on-chip (SoC) in February, devised as the mastermind for multipurpose wearable devices such as smartwatches. The company extended the line with Snapdragon Wear 1100 at the Computex 2016 convention.

This model is proposed for smaller, targeted-purpose wearables, such as fitness trackers or connected watches for the elderly. These can’t support large batteries so the new processor shoes off lower power features which include a Power Saving Mode (PSM) to extended battery life.

It also comes with connectivity options with a LTE/3G model and support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The line in terms of security doesn’t leave much out with a hardware random number generator, a cryptographic engine and a trust zone built into the chip set, in addition to an integrated processor for Linux-based apps. Qualcomm’s integrated location engine, iZat provides detailed location information through multi GNSS and cell-ID positioning.

It also backs geofencing applications for keeping track of pets, kids or the elderly. To speed up the development of devices by OEM, Qualcomm is joining hands with Aricent, Borqs, Infomark and surfaceInk to come up with reference platforms based on the chip. The chip is commercially available and starts shipping from this week.
