One of the few watches available to purchase that is equipped with the brand-new Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset is the 2019 edition of the Tambour Horizon. The Montblanc Summit 2 was the first, followed by Fossil Sport. The chip enables additional low-power modes, sports watch-focused changes, and enhanced always-on watch faces for Android watches. This is accomplished by the utilization of a secondary low-power CPU known as the QC1110, which takes care of the majority of the work when the smartwatch is not being worn.
The 2019 model comes with a round AMOLED touchscreen that is 1.3 inches in diameter and features a higher resolution. There’s also a 24-hour ring, with day/night indicators throughout the rim that are visible in ambient mode.
For the benefit of those who are unaware, when the watch is set to the ambient mode, it will display the time as well as other information, such as the step count, while consuming less power than it would if it were set to the fully active mode. The Wear 3100 chip allowed for the operation of the mode to take place. The 300mAh battery that comes with the Tambour Horizon can power the device for a full day, even if all of its features are activated. If you are only using it to display the time, this can go up to 5 days. Additional features include 1 gigabyte of random access memory (RAM) and 8 gigabytes of internal storage.
