The next version of Google's smartwatch operating system is slated to arrive on February 9th, according to mobile reporter Evan Blass. The leak follows last week's report that Google had notified developers of Android Wear 2.0's upcoming release so they could prepare to update apps for continued support.

I'm sure all three Android Wear users are jumping up and down with excitement.

Granted, I have the Gear S2 Classic 4G.

1) Fitness. New update has all sorts of cool auto-detecting what type of exercise you're doing.
2) Notifications. Yes, there are many times when I'm in a situation where pulling out my phone is a hassle.
3) Telling time. Amazed? Yup, it tells time, and I can show multiple timezones, which is great for an international company.
4) Reply to texts / answer calls. I can actually have my watch completely separate from my phone, which is great (granted that's because I got the 4G version).
5) Meetings. I have a terrible tendency to miss them, I mainly bought my watch to get buzzed for reminders.
6) VR. Yup, that's right, in my HTC Vive I'm completely in a different world, but with the watch when I get a call or notification, I can feel it vibrate on my wrist, and then I can take a peek at it.

There ya go, 6 reasons to get one.
