These are the few smartwatches that will be updated to Wear OS 3, eventually

5 days ago   |   By Talk Android

When Samsung and Google announced that they had merged their respective smartwatch platforms, it wasn't known when or even if current Wear OS models would be updated to the new firmware. Today, Google has announced the very few Wear OS-powered smartwatches that will eventually be upgraded to Wear OS 3 as it's called. It doesn't...

Wear OS 3: These are the compatible smartwatches, and the list isn't long

5 days ago   |   By AndroidPhoneFans

Despite being announced at Google I/O 2021 , Google's next wearable operating system didn't have an official name. There were mentions of it being changed to “Google Wear”, while others suggested it would just be called Wear OS. Today, Google announced Wear OS 3 in a new blog post, and “what it means for you”. The biggest question surrounding the redesigned Wear OS 3 had nothing to do with future releases. We already know that the Galaxy Watch 4 series will run a modified version, dubbed One UI Watch. Instead, those of us who already had recently-released Wear OS smartwatches wanted to...

Google's Wear OS 3 plans mean Android users should wait to buy a smartwatch

Google's Wear OS 3 plans mean Android users should wait to buy a smartwatch

5 days ago   |   By The Verge

Google has finally given its new, unified smartwatch platform a name - and it's an obvious one: Wear OS 3. That little detail was part of what may be a more contentious set of information about which current Wear OS smartwatches will be updated, when those updates will come, and what those updates will entail. On all three of those fronts, it's not very good news.
Google says that Wear OS 3 updates will start rolling out to a limited set of smartwatches in the “second half of 2022.” That's quite a long way away, especially since we're expecting the first Wear OS 3 watches to be announced...

Google's redesigned Wear OS will only reach a few current smartwatches

5 days ago   |   By Engadget

Google has outlined how it will update smartwatches to the Samsung-influenced Wear OS revamp , and we'll be frank: it's not great news for many users. Now called Wear OS 3, the opt-in update will be available in "mid to second half" 2022, and then only for a handful of watches. You'll need one of Mobvoi's more recent TicWatch models or one of the new Fossil watches arriving later in 2021. In other words, you'll be stuck if you bought a 2020 TicWatch , a Fossil Gen 5, the revived Moto 360 or any other Wear OS watch. Google is still promising current owners "new app experiences" like the...

The Google Wear OS 3 update is turning into a nightmare

5 days ago   |   By SlashGear

Google has revealed more details on Wear OS 3, its freshly-named unified smartwatch platform, and we could forgive Android wearable fans for being mightily unimpressed by the news. Announced back in May, the collaboration between Google and Samsung was billed as a way to combine Wear and Tizen into a single OS. Problem is, that sort of big change comes...
