Very soon, we will witness the Qualcomm platform for wearable tech for people of all ages. This new wearable platform will promote a new generation of Wear OS devices. Currently, the Qualcomm Snapdragon range is limited, but this new platform will contain a selection of a wider range of devices and gadgets.
Although no name of the platform has been announced yet, Qualcomm has announced that they are building this “processor platform from scratch”. Recently, the company has also launched the Qualcomm Ecosystem Accelerator. This device will help to hook up and integrate different OS, platforms, and hardware suppliers to assist in supplying devices to the market.
Already, they have been successful in making quite some big brands sign up as members. These include Fossil, Timex, ZTE, Louis Vuitton, Oppo, and Montblanc.
While Qualcomm has made a 21% year-on-year growth in wearables, its Wear OS devices only account for 3% of the smartwatch market in 2020. While Google has already acquired Fitbit and partnered with Samsung, their collaborations have been a success. Qualcomm is a top partner of Google, and with further collaborations in the future, it aims to provide this Qualcomm Platform for Wearable Tech to be a major happening in the tech sector. Hopefully, this platform will prove to be a useful base in featuring different brands and models as they come up in the market.
