Will Android Wear Soon be Rebranded as Wear OS?

12 March 2018

Hence removing the "Android Wear" and replacing it with "Wear OS" would make more sense.

Android Wear is now mainly used in smartwatches made by Asus (ZenWatch 2 and 3), Fossil (Q Founder, Marshal, Wander), Huawei (Watch), Lenovo (Moto 360 Gen 2, Sport), LG (Watch Urbane, G Watch R) and Tag Heuer (Connected). Although smartwatches saw a period of growth previous year, it doesn't look like many device makers are that eager to create new Android Wear smartwatches. According to a notification received by a Reddit user (via Android Police) and additional commentary from 9to5Google, the Mountain View company might be prepping a refresh of the OS with a new name and new logo. However, the tipster who got to see this change has only been able to witness this change only in the incognito mode.

GOOGLE APPEARS to be planning to rebrand its wearables operating system Android Wear as Wear OS in a future update. Apple now leads the way in the wearables sector, ahead of Xiaomi, Fitbit and Garmin, all products and brands not using Android Wear. They haven't disclosed any details regarding changing name, but the company must have wanted to remove the Android from the name of a device, as the device is not limited to Android only.
