Wear OS The new Fit bit Versa smart watch now supports the Google Play store, making it the first Wearable fitness device that comes preloaded with Google Play services, including Google Assistant, Google Fit and other apps like Spotify, Netflix and YouTube. You’ll have a ton of nice features, and the biggest feature will be the new app ecosystem. Fit bit’s app was among the best apps on the Play Store. It was one of the first few applications that used a new interface for fitness apps, and people loved it. The variety of apps available for use on the Amazon Appstore means that you have access to thousands of apps that help you track fitness.
If you want to take a break from your iPhone or Android, maybe you’d like to try an Apple Watch or an Android Wear watch? You’ll find plenty of fun apps for these two wearable devices. We’ve tried the Fit bit app for iPhone and the Android version of the app. While they work fine, they don’t have the app selection or customization that we see in the competing devices. When the Versa got Google Play support, I knew the Versa was going to be my next smart watch purchase. So I’ve been playing around with the apps and updates, and I’m totally impressed with what I see.
1. How Wear OS Will Be Different from Android
Wear OS is a new operating system built around the Google assistant that’s designed to work on smart watches and some other smart devices. The first step in running on this smart watch platform is to get the watch app on your smartphone and get it up and running. It’s missing an important app. The Google app is gone, so you’ll have to download and use a different messaging app. While there are several third-party apps (e.g., Yelp, Instagram, and Uber) on Android Wear watches, there is no Google Maps. The Wear OS app includes Google Assistant, so you can ask your questions and make requests using your voice.
2. Wear OS Apps Are Still Poor
A few weeks ago, Apple announced a new app called “Shazam.” It allowed the smartphone to recognize a song playing in the user’s environment. Apple claims that the app could be used to identify the song and provide links to websites and videos related to the song. Users can then listen to the audio content, watch a video or take a picture with the video or image. I think Shazam will be useful for finding music but I don’t think it’s going to change the way we consume audio content.
3. Wear OS Will Not Compete With iPhone or Android
Wear OS is a new OS for wearables, specifically smart watches. Wear OS works alongside Google’s Android operating system and runs directly on top of it. This means that unlike iOS, it doesn’t rely on an App Store or Google Play for its apps. This makes the platform less reliant on Apple, but that also means that it’s not tied to a particular hardware partner. If it takes off, Wear OS could threaten the dominance of the iOS and Android ecosystems. But for now, Wear OS needs some time to gain traction.
4. Why People Hate the Wearable Tech Industry
This is something I noticed after talking to my dad who owns a small local business. He told me he got tired of having people come in his store to tell him about some new watch or bracelet they purchased. I decided to put together a short list of why people don’t like the wearable tech industry. They aren’t really interested in wearable technology because they don’t see any value to it, so they avoid wearing it.
5. How Wear OS Will Dominate
Wear OS will be the first truly successful smart watch OS and it will do for wearables what iOS did for smartphones. I think most people don’t realize just how much Apple dominated smartphone technology until it was already too late. I believe the same thing could happen to smart watches. They may be an incremental innovation but they will still be the next big thing.
6. Wear OS Is Only Going to Grow More Popular
Google’s new smart watch operating system, Wear OS, has been gaining a lot of buzz among those in the technology space. It seems like everyone is trying to figure out how it works. There’s just one problem with Wear OS: It works on only Android devices. Some people don’t know how to download apps onto their smart watches. It’s not easy and takes a lot of effort, but once you get it right, you’ll never look back.
7. What Makes Wear OS Different?
Wear OS is the only smart watch operating system designed specifically to be used with fitness trackers and smart watches. Unlike Android Wear and Apple Watch OS, it doesn’t have an app store. It doesn’t support all of Google’s services. It doesn’t have an app called Messages. Instead, it has apps called Google Fit, Workout, Find My Phone, and More. There are no third-party apps that developers can create for it. Instead, there are apps created by Google and its partners.
