Power consumption and longervity - is it possible?

Keeping all the possible devices powered and functional - is there a limitation? The early WiFi days had limitations on distance and the number of WiFi connections that were viable. 

Can this be the new "pager"? (Remember those little buggers?)

Missing MEMS and other sensors

One most important part of wearable SoC is MEMS and many other sensors. Has Intel forgot to integrate them in their device?

Intel should work with other SoC integrator to make this system work.

Gee, I don't know if I want to wear a device named after the company who brought us the first electric chair.

I'd love to hear from anyone with hands on experience working with this new Quark module in wearables...or the Quark on an Arduino launched late last year...or any Quark.

Based on x86 with WiFi and BLE connectivity built in, how does the energy footprint look? The fundemental of wearable is low energy consumption that the ideal runtime of a one charge shall be at least 1 month imo. Nonetheless, given x86 core, the adoption will be high since Edision supports 2 OS and porting of Linux shall be relatively simple.

The strategy is great and if the price point of buying a development board is competitive, Edision might actually gain momentum.
