Wal-Marts flagship smartwatch, the Watch X, is the first product of the company to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a first for a smartwatch.
The Snapdragon 800 is designed to handle data streaming and real-time display of content.
The company says the Snapdragon 800 offers up to 1,000 times the performance of previous generations of smartwatches.
It’s also equipped with NFC, GPS, and a camera, as well as NFC-capable heart rate monitors and a gyroscope for measuring steps.
The Watch X is the company’s first smartwatch that is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chip.
The new device is the latest in a series of smartphones and tablets designed to give the user an edge in productivity.
The Watch X runs on Android, with a 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 pixel touchscreen, and can be powered from a charger or a USB cable.
It also features a 10-megapixel camera with 1.3-megapixels and a dual-LED flash.
The device is expected to be available this fall in select Wal-mart stores in the U.S. and Canada.
This is Wal-Mac’s second smartphone with a Snapdragon 800 chipset, following the Watch 2, which debuted in 2017.
