Wear OS Watch getting a New Update
Google’s Wear OS platform for Smartwatches has come a long way. Initially, the software was very much unfinished the hardware wasn’t capable enough to run the hefty Wear OS. There were stutters and lags all around the system UI. However, recently, Google has been working day and night to improve the experience of wear OS smartwatches. After the launch of Fossil Q Gen 5, we can say that Wear OS can now compete with other smartwatches in the market like the Galaxy Watch and the Apple Watch. Not to mention, Google’s new Wear OS H MR2 update which released recently to the fossil group of smartwatches just brings a lot to the table.
The new update is rolling out to the following devices and we can expect more devices to join soon.
- Fossil Gen 5 Series
- Diesel Axial
- Skagen Falster 3
- Emporio Armani Smartwatch 3
