Thats great
But Qualcomm and Intel are letting us down with no new wearable SoCs this year

Qualcomm's SW 2100 is still 28nm LP with old A7s
Qualcomm should release a new 14/16nm SoC with A35s

Intel's Atom Z34XX is still 22 nm with old Silvermont cores
Intel should release a new 14nm SoC with Goldmont cores
