Wear OS is colored with innovation thanks to Qualcomm and Google

It is now clear that smartwatches and wearables in general will be increasingly functional and important. In this sense, one of the news most recent comes from the partnership between Qualcomm e Google, focused on one RISC-V based platform for the operating system Wear OS. Here are the details of this collaboration, the importance of RISC-V technology, and how these innovations could change the smartwatch market for the better.

What is RISC-V

RISC-V (pronounced “risk-five”) is an instruction set architecture open and free for processors. It was born in the academic and research field, with the aim of providing a new platform that could allow freedom and extensibility in both software and hardware. In practice the architecture uses a gamma di fitting instructions Simplified to improve the Wear OS operating system.

This simplified approach helps make processors more efficient and easier to program than other architectures with more complex instruction sets. One of the distinguishing features of RISC-V is that it is provided under royalty-free open source licenses, which means anyone can use it and contribute to its development without having to pay licensing fees.

The partnership to improve Wear OS

The recent announcement by Qualcomm and Google is an emblematic example of how collaborations can pave the way towards innovative solutions in the technology sector. The partnership aims to offer a balance between low power consumption and high performance on Wear OS, crucial aspects that define the attractiveness and functionality of a wearable device.

The RISC-V architecture, being open source, allows a deep customization of the processor core, offering a flexible and scalable platform for developers. This not only facilitates the entry of new players into the market (smaller and perhaps low-cost companies), but also promotes greater competition.
