But this also shows that the group has not exactly covered itself with fame in terms of development. One would like to take care of “basic functions” first.

Expect a 20 percent increase in performance through more efficient programming. Apps on the watches should start noticeably faster.

Better interlinking with the accompanying smartphone should also become a reality with the update. In concrete terms, however, Google is not yet revealing much. The pairing process should be faster and smoother in the future. In addition, new chips from Qualcomm are to be supported.


Above all, this includes the manufacturer’s new 4100 series , which was only recently introduced. There should be advantages here, especially with LTE connections.

Controls should make it clearer what they actually stand for. In addition, there are new timers and a new hand washing mode, which is to be introduced against the background of the corona pandemic.

When exactly Google wants to distribute the update for Wear OS to its users has not been announced. Perhaps the new version will be presented together with Android 11.
