Attractive, Affordable, Reliable and Fun
Aricent helps innovators - from startups to Fortune 100 companies - transform their ideas into products that exploit opportunities in the long tail of the Internet of Things (IoT), which includes a multitude of potentially profitable and sustainable niche market segments. One example is our ADAPT wearable platform that leverages Aricent’s Converged IoT Solutions model. ADAPT combines our design and strategy expertise with technology from Qualcomm to create compelling, context relevant customer experiences and deliver exceptional functionality and performance.
The Aricent ADAPT wearable platform enables Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to accelerate the development of connected wearables for audiences across use cases, in particular, children. The platform features the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Wear 1100 processor designed for next-generation wearables.
Aricent can deliver a complete and flexible set of use cases and features on the ADAPT hardware and software reference platform. This platform allows OEMs and service providers to quickly introduce affordable wearables that children and caretakers find attractive, reliable and fun. A key benefit of the platform is the ability to iterate new product variations and target different age segments, form factors and use cases. The Snapdragon Wear 1100 processor supports the features consumers demand in their wearable devices such as smaller size, longer battery life, smarter sensing, secure location and an always-connected experience.
The Aricent ADAPT platform offers compelling and contextually relevant experiences specifically for the children’s wearable market. It enables rapid, iterative innovation so OEMs can design smart connected products specifically for children, and support them with technology that delivers the best possible experience.
