Next Generation Smartwatch, Wear OS Teased!
Over these last few months, leaks for a next-generation smartwatch have been circulating around the internet. Specifically, Google I/O announced that their smartwatch technology would partner with Samsung Mobile Tizen to create a unified wearable technology.
The collaborative project between these two opens up the potential of creating a new smartwatch powerhouse with its own fantastic OS system. The Verge reported that this new smartwatch is tentatively named "Wear."
Both companies have kept the details of the smartwatch development a secret. However, Samsung seems ready to give answers with their advertisement banner.
At the time of writing, the only information available for the new "Wear" smartwatch remains as speculations and theories. "Wear" smartwatch might incorporate features similar to Google smartwatch-like Tiles, Widget Function, User Shortcuts, and Task Switching capabilities. It might also support Google's vast app library, including the iconic health fitness app, FitBit.
However, the wait for official updates is not long! So save the date on June 28th where Samsung will likely unveil the full details, specs, and features of the incoming smartwatch "Wear."
Note, however, to take this information with a grain of salt. The smartwatch "Wear" features and Samsung's announcements are all subject to change according to the company's plans. All the specifics will be revealed in the full coverage of the Samsung MWC21 event.
