Android Wear 2.0 Features
The latest Android Wear tech was launched recently but at the moment only a few watches are running the fancy new OS, but the rest won’t be far behind. Android Wear is Google’s take on Apple’s smartwatch and the company stakes their claim to be crowned the king of smartwatches – you be the judge.
Android Wear 2.0 is a welcome leap forward and does make the Wear more independent from the smartphone. It now gives iOS users better reason to switch and opt for a Google-based smartwatch. It has a new look! The Google Now card-inspired user interface is gone and has been replaced with the new darker Material Design theme. Notifications are no longer dominating the screen as well and can be dealt with easily with some sort of action. However, it seems like Assistant needs more work as it’s temperamental and Fit still feels a bit undercooked. It needs more apps as well.
