For a while now, we’ve heard reports about the shrinking Android smartwatch market. Not too long ago, companies were falling over each other in the rush to release to new wearables, but their numbers have diminished recently. However, it appears that Google might be about to give its Android Wear platform a makeover, thereby reigniting interest in the sector.
First spotted by Redditor H3x0n, it looks as if Google is rebranding Android Wear, changing the name to Wear OS. Their post consists of a notification they received while setting up an unspecified smartwatch. It shows a new ‘W’ logo featuring Google’s blue, yellow, green, and red color scheme, along with the name “Wear OS.”
