There8217;s no news on features yet, but the Montblanc CEO Nicolas Naretski says it8217;ll be “built for travel, fitness or exploration.8221; Whether that means the GPS, NFC and water resistance missing from the last model remains to be seen.
The Wear 3100 is likely to deliver anything between 4 and 12 hours of better battery life over the Snapdragon Wear 2100 devices, thanks to a new ultra-low power co-processor that will do most of the menial work.
The chipset also promises a range of different modes, depending on how smartwatch owners make use of the device. There8217;s a Traditional Mode and Ambient Mode and a Dedicated Sports Experiences mode that8217;ll guide the processor to optimise features like HR monitoring and GPS in order to squeeze 15-hours out of the battery life.
Of course, users will be able to benefit from all the bells and whistles offered by Google8217;s Wear OS 2.0 operating system. The OS got a visual overhaul last month at the IFA tech show, with a new user interface.
