Coolpad penetrates wearables sector via partnership with Qualcomm

At the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, China based smartphone manufacturer Coolpad has apparently announced that it has paired up with renowned chipmaker Qualcomm to enter the smart wearable gadgets market. As per reliable sources, the smartphone maker’s wearable gadgets portfolio is most likely to be modeled on Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon Wear platforms.

Elaborating further, Coolpad’s upcoming wearable gadgets portfolio would reportedly be designed to primarily fulfill the demands of evolving sub-segments of wearables, which includes smart trackers for pets, the elderly and valuable assets, and smartwatches for kids.

Coolpad is also expected to utilize the Snapdragon Wear 2100 and Snapdragon Wear 1100 platforms to manufacture its wearable gadgets. Incidentally, the Snapdragon Wear 2100 platform has been built to meet the requirements of the rapidly growing 4G kid watch segment. As per Gadgets To Use, Coolpad’s smart watch would be a 4G enabled gadget which will be equipped with WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS functionality. The Snapdragon Wear 1100 platform, on the other hand, has been specifically designed for the emerging smart tracking segment.
