Shortly it unveiled the rebranding of its mobile platform for smartwatches, Google confirmed all wearable devices that will receive the new Wear OS update.

Basically, almost all smartwatches that have been updated to Android Wear Oreo will be rebranded to Wear OS by Google in the coming weeks. You can find the full list below:

  • Casio PRO TREK Smart WSD-F20 
  • Casio WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch
  • Diesel Full Guard
  • Emporio Armani Connected
  • Fossil Q Control
  • Fossil Q Explorist
  • Fossil Q Founder 2.0
  • Fossil Q Marshal
  • Fossil Q Venture
  • Fossil Q Wander
  • Guess Connect

The update will not bring any new features, but you should start seeing the new Wear OS by Google name on your watch. Also, the Android Wear application on your smartphone should be updated to the Wear OS by Google app too. You'll be able to continue to use it to manage your watch just like before, as there will be no changes whatsoever except for the new logo and new name.

Keep in mind that for the exact timing of the update, you'll have to contact the device manufacturer since it's not Google that will push it out.

I wanted to like Wear, I really did. I've owned four Wear watches over the past few years. But the fact is that Google just never knew what to do with this system. For every time I was wowed by my experience, I was disappointed by another. It feels like they went into the whole venture half-hearted, and I have no faith this latest iteration will figure it out. I own a Gear S3 now, and doubt I will go back. True, I do miss Google Assistant which is vastly superior to S-voice, or Bixby for that matter, but that just isn't enough. A surprising miss from the folks at Google.

What exactly bothered you on Wear?

It felt unfinished, menus were not always intuitive, and google searches would sometimes just hang with that circle going around and around.

My TAG Heuer Connected 46 is not in the list and it doesn't run Oreo but it received the Wear OS update already two days ago. But it's really just branding. Nothing changed.
