He also mentioned that the newly evolved smartwatches would help the kids in resolving their frequent queries like what is the national game of Australia? or how much time sunlight takes to reach the earth?

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 2500 chip is smaller than the previous smartwatch chips and comes with improved battery life. The chip is capable of supporting many sensors and features including camera up to 5MP, location tracking, and LTE. Besides, the new chip comes with a surprising tweak, it won't be running on Wear OS, the wearable platform from Android. Instead, Qualcomm has customized the Android for Kids’ watches.
