Aricent encourages innovation in smart connected products specifically designed for children with a new wearables platform which it says will allow “creation of wearables that children and caretakers will find attractive, affordable, reliable and fun.” A variety of waterproof, robust form-factors are supported, including watches, bracelets, pendants, brooches, toys, bands and beyond.
The new Aricent ADAPT Wearable Platform features the Snapdragon Wear 1100 processor announced recently, which is designed to make it easier for customers to develop connected wearables with use cases such as kid and elderly tracking.
Snapdragon Wear 1100 is designed for the next generation of targeted-purpose wearable segments where consumers are demanding a smaller size, longer battery life, smarter sensing, secure location, and an always connected experience. This processor excels in meeting these requirements with low power features such as Power Save Mode (PSM) and a compact package.
Other features of Snapdragon Wear 1100 include a Cat 1 modem with LTE/3G global band support, an application processor for Linux-based apps, sensors for interactive gaming and fitness tracking, plus voice, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Many solutions for children wearables do not offer children a customized experience. Aricent says its new platform helps to iterate new product variations and target different age segments, form factors and use cases.
“Aricent helps anybody that has an idea—be it a startup or a Fortune 100 company— to participate in the long tail of the Internet of Things,” said Walid Negm, Chief Technology Officer at Aricent. “The Aricent ADAPT wearable platform is an example of Converged IoT Solutions that combine design from Aricent and technology from Qualcomm Technologies to transform functionality and performance into an attractive customer experience.”
