Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset with improved battery life:

Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset just announced by Qualcomm which focuses on wearable devices only. This new chipset is the predecessor of Snapdragon Wear 2100.

Battery Performance of Wear 3100:

Qualcomm wear 3100 has a promising battery life efficiency. You should get an additional 4 to 12 hours of using a watch with this chip, compared to wear 2100. Power consumption efficiency is the key selling point of this chip. The exact amount of extra operating time will obviously depend on factors such as screen type, battery capacity, and device configurations. For example, a watch with a 450 mAh battery equipped with Snapdragon Wear 3100 under the hood will last up to 15 hours with GPS and heart rate control all the time. This mainly because 3100 has new Sports Personalized Experiences in Wear OS which this chipset supports.

The Wear 3100 is designed for wearables unlike 2100 which was derived from smartphone chips and will focus on use cases such as heart rate monitoring and step tracking. The main processor, which is based on an ARM design, will have the processing power to run full applications, while the secondary processor will run a simpler operating system that only handles a few tasks and consumes up to 20 times less power than the main processor. Qualcomm has indicated that portable devices that work with these chips could last more than a week or more if they are not running applications. This will allow smartwatches to display screens that are always on, making them feel more like regular watches.

The Snapdragon Wear 3100 has a Qualcomm QCC1110 coprocessor, which is optimized for very low power operations. The new chip will focus directly on the smartwatches that run Google’s Wear OS software and will offer a new architecture that has two processors. Unlike the company’s previous chips, which were actually derived from smartphone chips, the Wear 3100 is designed to use in wearable devices and will focus on use cases such as heart rate monitoring and step tracking. The main processor, which is based on an ARM design, will have the processing power to run full applications, while a secondary processor will run a simpler operating system that only handles a few tasks and consumes up to 20 times less power than the main processor. Qualcomm has indicated that portable devices that work with these chips could last more than a week or more if they are not running applications. This will allow smartwatches to display screens that are always on, making them feel more like regular watches.

Snapdragon 3100 Wear Specs:

Surprisingly, 3100 still has older ARM Cortex-A7 like Wear 2100 clocked at the speed of 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU older ARM Cortex-A7. In fact, given the internal model number of the 3100, it seems to be based on the Snapdragon 210 SoC for phones.

The Wear 3100 is capable of LTE data connectivity. If you buy a 4G smartwatch, the supported speeds are up to 1 Gbps for downloads and the upload speed is 150 Mbps. Fossil Group, Louis Vuitton and Montblanc are the first manufacturers to use these chips.
