Qualcomm is building better chips for Wear OS

Qualcomm is building better chips for Wear OS

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), announced that it has worked with Google to implement its next generation operating system, Android P, on select Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ mobile platforms. Google Fit, the Wear OS workout-tracking app, puts music controls directly inside the app so you can swipe down to adjust the volume or skip tracks instead of switching between the Fit and Music apps. But Google does have improvements lined up for its Wear OS platform this year.

One of the reasons Apple Watch has no problems fending off competition running Google's Wear OS is that they all use a two-year-old processor. There's also a new enhanced battery saver mode.

Pakistan interior minister Ahsan Iqbal shot in suspected assassination attempt
Labaik's leader, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, condemned the attack and said his party had not authorized anyone to take up arms. Considered the brains behind the PML-N's development agenda, Iqbal previously headed Pakistan's Planning Ministry.

But really, all Kedia wanted to talk about was the look of the watches and the fact that their "platform will significantly change the Wear OS ecosystem, what you expect from a smartwatch".

While there is no official update at the moment, Google has released a Developer Preview which is now only available for the Huawei Watch 2. Users can get to know the time by pressing the side button. Yes, you can still use Google Assistant to provide relevant information to your questions and requests, such as asking for the weather, but now you can use it to turn on the lights, tell your vacuum robot to start cleaning, and much more!

Warriors favored over Rockets, who have home court
It seems as though most of these guys know the importance of what a ring does to one's legacy. Harden and the Rockets lost to the Warriors in five games in the 2015 conference finals.

Kedia also mentioned that the new chip is going to be "designed from the ground up for a no-compromises smartwatch experience", which should in theory enable OEMs to develop smaller smartwatches with improved battery life.

With Wear OS DP1, we learned about things like the dark UI becoming the new default, SDK restrictions aimed at improving stability, and new rules for background apps meant to prolong battery life. However, the 2100 was outdated at launch and didn't deliver on promises of smaller watches and better performance. The platform will have a bunch of SoCs - dedicated to use cases, as explained by the executive, though features such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi will be standard and some models will include Global Positioning System and LTE connectivity. Not because the name sucked, as Wear OS does do a better job of reflecting the platform's support for both Android and iOS devices.
