We have been incredibly curious what will come out of the Google and Samsung smartwatch operating program collaboration given that it was introduced at. Most of its characteristics are nevertheless in the darkish, but at previous, we have a title: the OS will be identified as…Wear OS 3.
Certainly, Google has adopted up its present software program, Don OS 2, with the reasonable but pretty underwhelmingly-named Don OS 3. The formalannouncing the go didn’t have much else to share about what is coming in the ‘new unified system,’ as Google formerly known as the synthesized working process. But the put up did expose the Dress in OS 3 launch day would be some time in ‘mid to next half of 2022.’
That’s when the update will appear to already-produced smartwatches (and presumably wearables unveiled upcoming calendar year). The lousy information? The present-day compatibility checklist is little, consisting of only a few top-finish devices from a few makes, including:
- TicWatch Pro 3 GPS / LTE
- Ticwatch E3
- Potential TicWatch units
- Fossil’s unnamed watches launching afterwards in 2021
That’s not just a small record – there are some notable absences, including from Samsung alone.
Dude, where’s my Samsung Galaxy Look at update?
Alright, maybe Google’s just participating in it amazing – after all, Samsung might have teased the, but hasn’t outright promised it’ll be discovered all through its impending function on August 11. But c’mon, what are the odds that the upcoming best-conclude Samsung smartwatch does not use the ‘unified platform’ the organization teamed up with Google to establish?
Also, we’d be really stunned if the even now-unconfirmedwouldn’t run Wear OS 3. We have listened to several rumors suggesting it could launch later on this calendar year along with the . Clearly, it behooves Google not to leak 1 of its major reveals of the calendar year, but we now suspect what program it’s heading to operate – when (or if) it launches.
But we are curious why Google wouldn’t also announce that the top quality Fitbit smartwatch itat Google IO 2021 would operate Don OS 3, primarily considering the fact that they explicitly mentioned it would run Don OS software. Most likely that indicates this watch’s launch day is far too considerably in the long run to even mention right now, lest the tech media perform itself into a tizzy at any point out of it…ah nicely, also late.
