Would you track your kid with a smartwatch?From The 3:59 show: Qualcomm is betting parents will love wearables for their children.
So we wanna talk about smart watches. The market may be kind of a bust unless you're the Apple Watch. I think everything else is kind of meh. But Qualcomm sees a lot of potential in kids wearing them and actually introduced a new processor, a new platform For children's smart watches. Were the processors for kids? Yeah, well, no. The processor whill power. It's a platofrm to power smart watches designed specifically for kids. I mean are they really targeting kids? Or are they targeting parents who want their kids weraing them? That's a good question. I think yeah, they're really targeting parents who want Some sort of wearable that they can track their kids with. These are watches with a built in LTE connection, definitely more power efficient than the watches that we're getting. So they're not super sophisticated, but they do the job in terms of keeping track of your kids. Yeah I think their biggest challenge will be like keeping it cheap and keeping it durable. I'm sure like kids break everything and like. True, I really wouldn't trust like putting a smart like a $150 like smart watch on like Would you trust a $30, $40 one? Probably yeah but I would also have to know how often does it break. True. Yeah. No these things will definitely have to be durable. It's funny they actually make up half the market already and they're mostly out of China so that says a lot for the smart watch market.
