Google officially rebrands Android Wear to Wear OS
What started as a rumor a few days ago was confirmed earlier today by Google: Android Wear has been rebranded. Starting today, Google's platform for smartwatches will be called Wear OS, a wearables operating system for everyone.

The change will affect more than 50 smartwatches that made their debut since the launch of Android Wear. The new name is supposed to better reflect Google's technology and vision, the company said in a blog post.

Google will continue to develop Wear OS and bring new features and improvements to the wearable platform. In fact, the search giant claims “there's even more exciting work ahead,” which suggests Google might have some nice surprises in the pipeline.
