Google has launched the new Android Wear 2.0 system update which is available on Android smartwatches. The Android Wear 2.0 is Google’s first system update which comes with lots of new features and a new design. Tech giant company Google intended to bring this huge update in order to improve certain features and enhance the operating system for Android Wear. Google announced this huge update with two devices which will make its debut on February 10. This device includes the LG Watch Sport and the LG Watch Style.
It took Google some time to really reveal this huge update, we are thinking they wanted to take some time to improve on certain features. They actually made an announcement in May of last year that they will launch the new update in this year. Some new features in Android Wear 2.0 include the support for the standalone application, Android Pay, dials and the Google Assistant.
Also, it is claimed that users will be able to customize an always-on watch so that they can add relevant information at a glance from their selected apps.
“You can now personalise your Android Wear always-on watch face with information and actions from your favourite apps. Simply glance at your wrist to check your next appointment, stock performance, progress on fitness goals, or whatever is important to you.
A quick tap on your watch face lets you instantly order an Uber ride, start a workout, or get in touch with your significant other. Interested in different info throughout the day? Just swipe to switch your watch face as you go from the office to the gym to dinner with friends and home again.”
The updated version of the Google Fit will give users the opportunity to detect exercise activities such as push up, squats, sit-ups etc. According to report this features is available on the LG sports watch but is not on the LG Style watch.
As I mentioned earlier Google Assistant is available in the Android Wear 2.0 which will probably make life easier for users.
