Wear OS 2018Google

The latest version of Google’s smartwatch operating system has arrived. 

On Wednesday, Google introduced a redesigned Wear OS. While it’s not a total overhaul, Google added a few new features and eliminated some of the minor gripes with previous versions of the design. The new OS is more fitness-focused, and better incorporates Google’s smart assistant. 

The new Wear OS is being unveiled today, but it won’t start rolling out to watches until September. Google has yet to confirm all the third-party watches the new software will be compatible with, or whether its debut will coincide with the rumored Pixel Watch, a flagship smartwatch that would be made in-house by Google. 

But for now, here’s our first look at the new features coming to the redesigned Wear OS.
