Everything suggested that the connected OnePlus Watch would not work on Wear OS. Eventually, the Chinese company and Google are working together to develop an enhanced version of the operating system.
OnePlus Watch, with or without Wear OS? This is the big question for which some leakers tried to respond in the past few weeks. For Max Jambor, always well informed about OnePlus projects, The smart watch of the Chinese company will not ship the Google operating system dedicated to connected clocks.
Change of plans
OnePlus would not like to have an operating system that it could not fundamentally modify, thus dealing with its qualities and defects. In addition, watches with the Wears operating system are not known to be monsters of autonomy. An important criterion for OnePlus decision makers, who do not necessarily want to disappoint their community.
However, the subsidiary of the Oneplus group has more than one trick up its sleeve. According to its CEO Pete Lau, interviewed by Input and relayed by 9to5Google, Wear OS should be invited to the future connected watch. But not quite in its current form. OnePlus is actually working with Google to develop an enhanced version of Wear OS.
An optimized version
“Wear OS has a lot to improve. What we’re trying to do is work with Google to try to improve connectivity between the Wear OS ecosystem, Android TV and Android smartphones, to create better interoperability between ecosystems.” he declared.
Here, therefore, there would be no question of a simple agreement that would authorize OnePlus to use Wear OS, but of a broader collaboration that would result in an optimized operating system. One way for the Middle Empire company to stand out from the competition through a more successful software experience.
