In what world are more complications a good thing? Host PJ Jacobowitz welcomes experts from the wearables team at Qualcomm Technologies. Matthew Dehamer and Lauren Miller explain how our foundation in computing and connectivity influences our work across wide-reaching solutions, including the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ Platform, announced today.

Our wearable technologies are helping transform smart watches, trackers, and communicators for every member of your family, including pets. They span sports, health, and fitness brands — and represent the part of our business where we get to namedrop big fashion houses like Louis Vuitton and MontBlanc, and where customization and personality are critical.

Along the way you’ll learn a bit about co-processors, geofencing, sensors, traditional timepiece mode, and the general activity level of Matt’s English Bulldog.
