Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 specifications, features

Snapdragon Wear 3100 is powered by quad-core A7 processors paired with Adreno 304 GPU and Snapdragon X5 LTE modem. The chipset is also equipped with a new co-processor, Qualcomm QCC1110 which "acts as a powerful companion to the main processor, redefining audio, display, and sensor experiences for next generation smartwatches". The co-processor also uses deep learning engine for tasks such as keyword detection.

Qualcomm says that the new chipset offers battery life of 4 to 12 years more than its predecessor. The chipset's low-power management is available in three new modes — Ambient Mode, Dedicated Sports Experiences and Traditional Watch Mode. The chipset's battery saving feature works in low power modes, GPS/location services, time updates, music playback and connectivity.

The 'Ambient Mode' comes in 16 colours with live complications and improved brightness. The 'Dedicated Sports Experiences' allows users to continue all physical activities with GPS and heart rate monitoring turned on throughout. Lastly, the 'Traditional Watch Mode' offers an extended period of time for users on their smartwatches.
