Coolpad is foraying into Smart Wearable segment. Coolpad`s Smart Wearable Gadgets product portfolio will be based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear platforms. This announcement was made at the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.
According to Coolpad, this portfolio is focused on products that are tailored to meet the specific power, connectivity and location requirements of emerging wearable sub-segments, including smartwatches for kids, and smart trackers for pets, the elderly, and valuable assets.
Coolpad will be utilizing the Snapdragon Wear 2100 and 1100 platforms in its range of wearable products. The Snapdragon Wear 2100 platform is built to meet the needs of the emerging 4G kid watch segment. It is engineered to support 4G multi-mode with bi-directional calling and delivers indoor and outdoor positioning through a combination of Wi-Fi, GPS and 4G location triangulation techniques. The platform also features Qualcomm Processor Security, which is the hardware and software security foundation for billions of IoT devices deployed around the world.
The Snapdragon Wear 1100 platform is designed for the smart tracking segment, including pets, the elderly, and valuable asset tracking. This platform incorporates Qualcomm Technologies’ multi-mode 4G LTE modem, integrated location for indoor and outdoor positioning, hardware-based security for greater protection, and ultra-low power for long battery life.
Mr. Brandy Kang, Executive Vice President of Coolpad Group, shared the strategy behind this portfolio expansion, “Coolpad is expanding its portfolio outside of smartphones and we are excited to work with Qualcomm Technologies on its flagship platforms, Snapdragon Wear 2100 and 1100, as we expand our wearables offerings to encompass kid, pet, elderly, and valuable asset trackers, and emergency response devices globally. We listen to the customer needs and continuously challenge ourselves to think as consumers do when it comes to product innovation. We are bringing this customer-centric approach to the wearables segment today in our quest to making quality and affordable products for U.S. consumers and families as well as the rest of the world.”
