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.
Android is just phone only. It will never be popular on anything else. Tablets have been a flop for Android, watches are a total flop, set top boxes etc.
On the watch front there are watches that are more expensive then a lot of Android phones. Most Android users are not gonna pay that, the people who would are Samsung users and Samsung doesnâ€™t use Android.
Interesting that Google does not make a watch.
