Android Wear To Get Oreo 8.0 Operating Software

Google’s Android Wear will soon see the update Android Oreo 8.0 OS, which will be released on Google Plus groups for developers. As of now, the LG Watch Sport is the only smartwatch that will be supported. The LG Watch Sport is likely to get this update, as in October it got the beta version of it.

A Key Update For Android Wear OS

The last big update for the Android Wear was at the start of 2017 when the LG Wear Sport received the Android Wear 2.0. The interface and features were different from the base OS, similar to what you see on the Android TV. There are similar UI features that you see with the prior OS version, but it’s got some improvements.

Although if you were to look the smartwatch market, you would see that the Android Wear is nowhere near being popular. According to the first quarter of 2017, Apple had 57 percent of the smartwatch market with Samsung holding 19 percent of it. Android wear had 18 percent.

Worst of all, David Singleton, the VP for Android Wear, is no longer employed with Google.

Why Is The Wear Device So Unpopular?

The thinking is that the chips are the key issue in people’s dislike in the watch. Qualcomm provides their chips, and they’re out of date. For instance, the Snapdragon Wear 2100 was a smartphone chip released back in 2014. Apple and Samsung have developed their own chips, which means the manufacturing process is current. This leads to a smoother, quicker user experience.

Google announced it would update other watches to the Android Oreo when the time is right for its manufacturer.
