Nowadays, smartwatches from every brand are no longer impressive for many of us – perhaps, it’s because Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 2100 platform. It’s all Android Wear smartwatches are based on. Now, it’s getting old and frankly speaking, slow as well.
For the past couple of months, Android Wear has now become Wear OS and the demands for resources hardly went backward. This Chipset was also expected to keep things running smoothly and seamlessly in the most recent smartwatches. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen and it led to the ribbon of impartially poor user experience in the world of Android smartwatches.
Wear 3100 Chipset Back in 2018
Luckily, Qualcomm released Snapdragon Wear 3100 Chipset – more or less far capable. The watch named Montblanc Summit 2 actually has that Chipset inside. The timing, however, was not really great and brands were not fully ready to announce another one. Not even yet!
That’s the main reason Wear OS watches have slipped behind as compared to the smartwatches from Apple, Samsung, and Fitbit.
There are only 2 new smartwatches released on the latest platform. And we don’t have a good feel for what Wear 3100 can do.
Alongside Montblanc Summit 2, Fossil Sport is barely optimized for the new platform which leads to a disappointing experience as well.
Wear 3100 Chipset in 2019
All we can do is to hope that we will see quite a few Wear 3100 smartwatches in 2019 and we are most likely to see a couple make their debut in the first quarter of 2019 or at CES 2019 which will kick off in Las Vegas before February ends.
Very much like us, maybe everyone wants to see smartwatches built with the latest platform – optimized to take advantage of Wear 3100 Chipset. We are expecting a couple of days’ battery life without any issue and a super-fast, lag-free and flawless experience.
Will any well-reputed brand make such a watch? Chances are Huawei will gear up for the next installment of its Huawei Watch Line. Well, Samsung being the world’s number one smartphone brand, will also introduce a smartwatch with much-improved performance and innovative technologies.
