Qualcomm to finally bring an updated chip to Google's Wear OS later this year

Google has renamed the operating system as Wear OS. Beyond those aspects, it's tough to gauge whether or not Wear OS has enough gas in the tank to really make a significant impact in the smartwatch industry - one that's largely dominated by the Apple Watch. Part of this can be attributed to the ageing Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipsets used by many of these devices. You'll be able to check the time by pressing the side button, while a long press will resume normal activity. The QualcommSnapdragon 2100 system-on-chip, which was announced in 2016 and is the most common SoC on Wear OS smartwatches, is itself a watch-optimized version of the 5-year old Snapdragon 400 budget SoC built on a 28nm process.
This joint effort aims to expand global availability, as well as accelerate the availability of key new enhancements to consumers, such as multi-camera support, display cutout support, indoor navigation, HDR, among others. That's partly why the company made a decision to re-brand the platform to Wear OS and is offering smarter Google Assistant features. He said the platform "will be the first with purpose-built chips" and will have several variations - manufacturers can choose from the selection, depending on how they want people to use their watches. Actions let users get things done through a conversational interface that can range from a quick command to turn on some lights or a longer conversation, such as playing a trivia game. Evidence of the latest development can already be seen with the Android P Beta that is already available for a variety of non-Google Pixel devices, including Essential PH-1, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21, Vivo X21 UD, and Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S.
When referring to Qualcomm's previous chipsets, Kedia stated "But when we go to generation three, it's designed from the ground up for a no-compromises smartwatch experience with dedicated chips that make your watch look pretty when you're not looking at it, that brings the best fitness and watch experience, and extends battery life".
To say Wear OS has stagnated is definitely an understatement with very few new, decent smartwatches hitting the market. The new chipset will be available in multiple variations with all having Bluetooth and Wi-Fi while fitness-oriented chips will also include Global Positioning System. This does presume that all Wear OS devices will have at least one button.
