    The wearable market is growing rapidly and its products are effective for all ages and uses in both consumer and organizational sectors. In this regard, Qualcomm announced its comprehensive plan for the wearable market. During a press conference on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, Qualcomm unveiled its growing investment, introducing the company's new program called the Wearables Ecosystem Accelerator Program (wearables ecosystem accelerator program). According to Qualcomm, more than 60 leading wearable manufacturers - including Verizon, Oppo, Fossil, BBK, Arm and Zebra - will participate in the program.

    According to IDC Research Director Jitesh Ubrani, wearables market with annual growth It is accompanied by 21% and shows no signs of slowness. Following consumer demand for new uses in wearable devices, we are witnessing the emergence of innovative form factors in the industry. The use of smartwatches has moved beyond health and fitness tracking to both consumer and enterprise sectors.

    Qualcomm's growing investment in Snapdragon Wear

    Pankaj Kedia wearables Qualcomm's chief executive in the wearable sector, referring to the wide range of wearable products that use Snapdragon Wear chipsets, announced the growth of Qualcomm's investments in advanced platforms and technologies, stating that the company intends to use chips, or Qualcomm. Generate new "platforms" from the Snapdragon Wear family to achieve the company's long-term goals. Qualcomm plans to expand Snapdragon Wear chip line - Wear OS against competitors?

    Last year, Qualcomm exported more than 40 million Snapdragon Wear chips to more than 100 countries, and as a result of the company's partnership with more than 75 manufacturers and more than 25 service providers, more than 250 wearable products have entered the market. And that means an average of one new product per week. The wearable ecosystem accelerator program

    A very bright future awaits the wearables sector, but at the same time the industry is facing daunting challenges. Therefore, in order to facilitate cooperation between companies and accelerate the provision of solutions to address these challenges, Qualcomm has launched a program called the "Wearable Ecosystem Accelerator Program". The members of this program are manufacturing companies, service companies, platform actors, independent vendors of hardware and software products, and system integration companies. According to Qualcomm, partnering with parent companies (or OEMs) can facilitate the development and commercialization of wearable products and solutions.

    This program brings together many of the world's industrial leaders. Measures such as discussing industry trends, sharing new tools in technology and products, holding training sessions, demonstrating concepts, launching products, and facilitating partner meetings among ecosystem actors are on the agenda. According to Qualcomm, the ultimate goal of the program is to accelerate the growth of the wearable sector, which will be achieved by providing distinctive experiences with lower development costs and faster production time. Qualcomm's role in upgrading Wear OS

    Considering the previous generation of Wear OS (Android Wear), it's been many years, but the platform's popularity is not due to its high power or Brand loyalty, but only because of the high number of users. Many users consider this operating system to be merely a driver (and not the best or even ordinary) and believe that devices equipped with this operating system are a few steps behind the likes of AppleWatch or GalaxyWatch in terms of hardware.

    Smartwatches equipped with Wear OS are always in tough competition with Samsung Apple Watch and Galaxy ( Based on the Tizen operating system). Now, with Qualcomm's special efforts to expand Snapdragon Wear chips, the company seems to be at the center of a new wave of Wear-based devices, eventually seeing this wearable leap against competitors' wearables.

    One of the biggest concerns users have about Wear OS-based smartwatches is usually the type of chip inside. Most of the smartwatches that have just been produced still use the Snapdragon 3100 chip (product of 2018). Although Qualcomm has produced other chipsets such as the Snapdragon 4100 and +4100 since the Snapdragon 3100, these chips have not been very popular, and most wearable manufacturers still prefer to use the 3100.

    Qualcomm did not give further details of its plan at a recent press conference, and it is unclear how many Snapdragon Wear chips will be produced and with what specifications. The only thing that is certain is that Qualcomm has a special plan to expand the Snapdragon Wear chip series, and it hopes to do so by upgrading the wearable OS-enabled wearables.
