Google partners with Samsung once again to launch a smartwatch. The new wearable is tentatively called “Wear.” Google is trying again with Samsung’s Tizen OS helping to fill in the gaps that Google couldn’t do itself.

Samsung will have complete control over the software. Samsung built features and functionality that could best any Wear OS smartwatch. This will be followed by exceptional integration with Samsung smartphones. This new platform will allow developers to create apps and widgets for a single OS instead of splitting their efforts between Wear OS and Tizen.

Previously, every smartwatch launched by google has been lacking in one way or another. They only work best with Samsung phones, and while they’re good enough with other Android devices, extra helper apps need to be installed to get them to work. Samsung is selling millions of smartwatches every year, yet it is not able to generate the kind of developer interest that Wear OS has.

The Issue With The Previous Versions

The previous smartwatches didn’t have an OEM partner for integrated brand recognition. The idea behind the partnership is both parties will get to put in their equal efforts where google will put in its operating software. In contrast, Samsung will get to incorporate its android developer system. These two technologies combined will give the smartwatch a much-needed boost to make it one of the best-selling products in the market.
