In bad sales of watches on Android is to blame for Qualcomm

While Apple is ahead of   sales of swiss watches, cases from   the main competitor Android Wear are frankly unimportant. There were a lot of reasons for this, but   here are the analysts from   ArsTechnica put forth an interesting hypothesis about   the fact that   a really smart watch from   Google has killed Qualcomm.

Why Qualcomm

A   all because Qualcomm is not   produced no single-chip processors exactly 2 years. By modern standards it is already an ancient crystal. The latest processor company for Android Wear was Snapdragon 2100, which on   the exit was very far from   concepts of topology. AND   it is not   so much about   power, which is not   especially critical for smart hours, how much about   obsolete architecture with   poor energy efficiency. Because of what a clever clock on   Android as a rule noticeably lost in   autonomy for smart watches from   Apple and   Samsung.

What's up with the sales of Android watches

There are no exact figures, as there are too many manufacturers, but in general the picture is sad. On   Google I / O conference, where Google shows new products, about   smart watch is not   it was said neither   the words. Moreover, Google generally deleted the category " Clock " from   of its online store , where at the same time they disappeared and   the most popular Android phone models   - LG   Watch Style and   LG   Watch Sport. Well and   the Android Wear lineup for   2017 replenished with only a few models, most of them   who made it clearly late for   holiday company Fossil.
