Wear OS Watches Get UV Index Tracking in New Version

Google has introduced a new feature to the Wear OS watches. The users can now use their smartwatches to track the UltraViolet index in their location. This new feature added in the weather app will protect users from sunburn. After the installation, the weather app will show you the current condition and the temperature in your current location. It shows the UltraViolet Index from 0 to 11, where the higher UV index is bad for the body. It is the measurement to detect the strength of the sun producing ultra-violet radiation.

On their Twitter account, Google has mentioned it is a global rollout, and you will see the latest firmware in your smartwatch very soon. If you are using any Wear OS watch like Oppo Watch, Fossil, Mobvoi, or Sunnto, then you should look for new firmware. It is a new function for Wear OS users, but the companies like Garmin & Amazfit have done it long ago. Huami has installed it on their Amazfit GTR & GTS watches in 2019.

To be frank, Wear OS smartwatches don’t get major firmware updates regularly. If we exclude the H-MR2 update in the recent, then I don’t remember there is any major rollout in this year. Samsung and Amazfit are way ahead in this game, and in every quarter, they send at least one major software to their new wearables.
