Qualcomm's latest chipset to power smartwatches is the Snapdragon Wear 4100 Platform. The new platform brings improved performance and efficiency. An optional Always On (AON) co-processor chip brings new always-on features, including continuous heart rate monitoring and sleep tracking. The new AON chip also supports always-on displays with 64,000 colors (up from 16 in the previous generation) and faster tilt-to-wake responsiveness. The main Snapdragon Wear 4100 chip offers 85% faster performance compared to Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform and supports cameras up to 16 megapixel. The 4100 uses a 12nm manufacturing process, offering much better efficiency compared to the 28nm process used for the 3100. The Category 4 LTE modem supports dual antennas for better data performance. The Snapdragon Wear 4100 platforms support both Wear OS by Google and the Android Open Source Platform (AOSP). Devices using the new chips are expected to ship later this year.
