Wear OS is getting a bright spotlight put on it this year with its overhaul. Samsung is officially releasing the first smartwatch running the new software, with Google rumored to have its own Pixel Watch in the works. Let's dig through the leaks to see what we can find out about Google's first smartwatch.
We're all tired of Google internally testing smartwatches and then never releasing one. The Pixel ecosystem is prime for a smartwatch and now that Wear OS got some much-needed attention, so is the software. Do it now Google.
I've loved Android smartwatches since the original Moto 360, but I'm tired of making excuses for Wear OS's lackluster performance and Tizen's abysmal apps. Once upon a time, I thought maybe — just maybe — a Pixel Watch could be the smooth, well-supported Android watch of my dreams, but now I know better.
