Samsung is one of the wearable brands most important in Spain, with watches as complete as the Galaxy Watch 3. The manufacturer uses Tizen OS as the operating system in its watches, a system that gives great performance in these devices and makes the brand’s watches are among the best on the market.
For its next watch, the brand would be thinking of abandoning Tizen OS as an operating system. Apparently, Samsung will use Android in its watches again, replacing Tizen with Wear OS. A decision that raises doubts above all, but could also be a boost for Wear OS.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3: analysis and user experienceWe analyze the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, a smartwatch that stands out for offering a unique combination of design, smart functions and sports.
Samsung will change Tizen for Wear OS
It is the well-known leaker Ice Universe who has revealed this possible Samsung decision, although we still do not have confirmation from the South Korean manufacturer. The one who makes it decide to ditch Tizen OS to use Wear OS on their watches is a decision that not everyone welcomes with open arms.
Tizen OS is a system that works perfectly on the brand’s watches, in addition to having the support of consumers, while Wear OS is a system that Google seems to have put aside. It doesn’t get any major updates or improvements and it doesn’t have a very prominent market share, with a few brands like Fossil really pulling the bar.
The only hope is that Google will take Wear OS more seriously now that they have bought Fitbit, whose watches they already sell. This purchase may be the definitive impulse for Google to take action with Wear OS and improve this operating system in its watches, so that a brand like Samsung will also use it.
For now it is not something confirmed, but it would certainly be a decision that will generate a lot of headlines, if they finally use Wear OS in their watches, although it is something that has been rumored several times in the past. First we will have to see if Google takes this operating system seriously and they are working on improvements that allow it to advance in the market, so that brands like Samsung start using it in their watches.
The entry Samsung would use Android in its watches again, and we do not know if it is good it appears first in The Free Android.
