Google’s Android Wear is Now Wear OS: These Wearables Will Support the Update

Google has decided to rename its Android Wear brand that it had launched in 2014. The brand Android Wear is now rebranded with a new name called Wear OS. As of now, Google hasn’t made any changes in the hardware or software, only the OS is being rebranded. The rebranding of the OS also comes with a new website and a new logo.

In a recent blog post, Google claimed that the new Wear OS is “a wearables operating system for everyone”. Google has also unveiled a list of smartwatches that will receive the new update. For now, apart from the landing page, it is Android Wear with a different name. This new update does not seem to have any new features.

Earlier, when Android Wear had been announced by Google, it was compatible only with Android smartwatches paired with Android smartphones. Later, even iPhone devices started receiving compatibility, which made the name Android Wear a little deceiving. The new name Wear OS seems to be on a more neutral ground.

Additionally, Google has unveiled this new change a week ahead of the Baselworld expo. The expo is held for all the manufacturers who will announce their latest Wear OS products.
