Android Wear 2.0 to reportedly debut on October 15

LG G Watch - Android Wear 1.0

There is no confirmation yet, but it seems like Google is ready to reveal the next step in Android Wear. Meaning, the Mountain View Company is reportedly hosting an event next week, where the Android Wear 2.0 might be revealed. Though, that’s not it’s the new version of Android L, new Nexus tablet made by HTC and Android TV, might be announced on October 15, as tipped by the Android Police’s Founder Artem Russakovskii.

Earlier this year only, the search giant revealed its wearable operating system, which has been the top trending topic among the technology enthusiasts, as the next wave of wearables – smartwatches, fitness bands – is arriving this year.

LG G Watch - Android Wear 1.0

Keeping in mind the current version of the Android Wear 1.0.1.1405545, according to the latest update on the LG G Watch, it failed to impress in the functionality, as well as on the device’s perspective. While on the intuitiveness, the Android Wear is quite a good OS compared to the other custom firmware that you may see on other smartwatches. With the Android Wear being the smaller sibling of Android OS, it also touts the ability to extend and modify, as it is also an open source platform.

All that Google need to work on Android Wear is create some ‘wow’ factor in their wearable operating system, which makes the functionality and device perspective for various smartwatches vendors, to understand what hardware they should use. Though, this operating system is still in its earlier stage, it has shown a great amount of potential and stability, which most watch OS have not shown at all.

As Samsung has already announced its Tizen powered Gear S, while industry is still waiting to hear something concrete about WebOS powered smartwatch by LG, as the information recently leaked on company’s official site, we are expecting Google to reveal the next version (possibly 2.0) of their wearables OS. While the Apple Watch is missing an opportunity, as the production is delayed to February 2015 (only limited quantities will be manufactured), mentioned by recent reports. Google can take advantage of that by offering a better Android Wear version, which will power the upcoming smartwatches.
