It is not the year 2018 or 2019, and it is not the same Wear or Android Wear that you used to make fun of it. In the year 2020, Google has really tried to concentrate on the Wear OS ecosystem to minimize most of the low-quality corners. After the release of Android 10, Wear OS has received curated functions, specifically made for the smartwatches and the improvements for the existing features to work better with hardware. If not all the Wear OS watches are up to the benchmark, though the watches like Fossil Gen 5, Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro 3 are more than what you have expected. Now, with the entry of Oppo & Xiaomi, you will see more Wear OS smartwatches in the market.
After when Samsung, Fitbit, and few other companies abandoned Wear OS, companies like Fossil, LG, Puma, and others have stood behind it. Recently, Google has pushed one of the major firmware for watches to bring more stability and speed up the devices. I also think Wear OS is nowhere less than WatchOS, Tizen, or Fitbit OS in any corner. It has a separate Play Store like Apple & Samsung and has App Store & Galaxy Store, respectively. It contains beautiful watch faces, some casual games, and even Google’s essential apps like Google Assistant, Google Fit & Google Pay services.
