Review: Wear OS 2.0 can’t fix its obsolete watch hardware

Google’s major Wear OS revamp is out today, and soon it will arrive on most devices released in the past year and a half (although Ars has already spent a week with a pre-release version of the OS). In the face of relentless competition from the Apple Watch Series 4 and Samsung Galaxy Watch, Google’s most obvious change in the new Wear OS is a new UI for most of the main screens. There’s not much in the way of new functionality or features, but everything is laid out better.

Seems like a very welcome update to a struggling platform.
