Google announces an update for Wear OS ahead of Pixel launch

Three Wear OS smart watches running the Wear OS redesign of 2018

The only Wear OS watches that will not benefit from the upgrade are Samsung Gear Live, LG G Watch, Sony Smartwatch 3, Moto 350 (2014) and Asus ZenWatch (v1).

A new report from The Verge explains that, in addition to aesthetic changes, the new Wear OS has been updated to improve the speed and performance of frequently used features - health tracking, Google Assistant, and notifications. It can detect if you have a flight due and show you updates about that if you are on the way.

Not too much can have changed in that time because we reached the semi-final and there has only been three league games.

Wear OS' new notification stream is created to make it easier to browse, take action or dismiss notifications. This new version of Wear OS makes quicker use of Google Assistant and Google Fit, and makes the entire experience more intuitive.

These changes seem like a late reaction to Apple's watchOS. Simply swipe up to see stream.

Google Maps Go now brings turn-by-turn navigation functionality, while incorporating a brand new home screen with handy shortcuts. Users will get info on ticket prices and timings of buses on over 20,000 routes across 1,500 cities thanks to the partnership.

Google just announced a Wear OS redesign that dramatically alters the way the operating system looks and functions. On top of that, you also get the same day-to-day functionality that comes with Google Assistant (i.e. weather, delay in your commute, meetings, etc.). The new features have been developed in close collaborations with the World Health Organization and the American Heart Association as users will now be able to access the Health app swiping right.

Lastly, Google Fit has been added with two new activity goals, Hear Points and Move Minutes. Meanwhile, swiping right will get you to a new Google Assistant-powered feed that presents you with daily information, similar to how the Overview feature works on Android and iOS. Wear OS uses can now swipe up to see all of their notifications at once, and then tap on any of the messages to select a built-in smart reply. Therefore, for the most part, this is a redesign of how you access things around your watch face.
