By combining Samsung's Tizen and Fitbit's popular features, the new Wear OS is expected to bring an improved user experience to the Android smartwatches.
The focus of this collaboration is on optimizing software for new chips and implementing a variety of sensors. It is also promised that it will result in a better, faster and more energy-efficient operating system for wearable devices. Before the release, the companies already claimed that the upcoming upgrade provides a smoother display of animations and an increase in the launch speed of applications by 30%.
It is said that future Samsung Galaxy smartwatches will move to the new platform, while access to the OS will also be provided to the other manufacturers.
