"Google Watch" redirects here. For the website critical of Google, see Criticism of Google.

Wear OS (also known simply as Wear[7] and formerly Android Wear) is a version of Google's Androidoperating system designed for smartwatches and other wearables.[8][9][10] By pairing with mobile phones running Android version or newer, or iOS version or newer with limited support from Google's pairing application,[11] Wear OS integrates Google Assistant[12] technology and mobile notifications into a smartwatch form factor.

Wear OS supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi,[13]3G, and LTE connectivity, as well as a range of features and applications. Watch face styles include round, square and rectangular. Hardware manufacturing partners include Asus, Broadcom, Fossil, HTC, Intel, LG, MediaTek, Imagination Technologies, Motorola, New Balance, Qualcomm, Samsung, Huawei, Skagen, Polar, TAG Heuer, Suunto, and Mobvoi.[14]

In the first six months of availability, Canalys estimates that over , Android Wear smartwatches were shipped.[15] As of 15&#;March&#;[update], Wear OS had between 10 and 50 million application installations.[16] Wear OS was estimated to account for 10% of the smartwatch market in [17][needs update].

History and compatibility[edit]

Logo for Android Wear, the previous name of the operating system

The platform was announced on March 18, , along with the release of a developer preview. At the same time, companies such as Motorola, Samsung, LG, HTC and Asus were announced as partners.[18] On June 25, , at Google I/O, the Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch were launched, along with further details about Android Wear. The LG G Watch is the first Android Wear smartwatch to be released and shipped. Motorola's Moto was released on September 5,

On December 10, , an update started to roll out, adding new features including a watch face API and changed the software to be based on Android "Lollipop".[19]

The LG G Watch[20] and Samsung Gear Live[21] started shipping in July , while the Motorola Moto ,[22] began shipping in September The next batch of Android Wear devices, which arrived at the end of , included the Asus ZenWatch,[23] the Sony SmartWatch 3,[24] and the LG G Watch R.[25] As of March&#;[update], the latest Wear OS devices are the LG Watch Urbane,[26] and the Huawei Watch.[27][needs update]

On August 31, , Google launched a Wear OS app for iOS version or newer, allowing limited support for receiving iOS notifications on smartwatches running Wear OS.[28] As of September&#;[update], only the LG Watch Urbane and Huawei Watch are supported, but Google announced support for more smartwatch models.[11][29]

In March , Android Wear was rebranded as Wear OS. It was stated that the renaming "better reflects our technology, vision, and most important of all — the people who wear our watches."[30] In September , Google announced Wear OS , which made the personalized Google feed (replacing Google Now) and new fitness tracking platform Google Fit accessible from the watch face, and redesigned the notification area to use a scrolling pane rather than pages, and support automatically-generated smart replies (as on Android Pie).[31][32] In November , the underlying platform of Wear OS was upgraded to a version of Android Pie.[33]

In January , Google completed its acquisition of wearables manufacturer Fitbit; upon its announcement of the purchase in November , Google's head of hardware Rick Osterloh stated that it would be "an opportunity to invest even more in Wear OS as well as introduce Made by Google wearable devices into the market."[34][35]

Wear OS powered by Samsung

In May at Google I/O, Google announced a major update to the platform, internally known as Wear OS It incorporates a new visual design inspired by Android 12, and Fitbit exercise tracking features. Google also announced a partnership with Samsung Electronics, who is collaborating with Google to unify its Tizen-based smartwatch platform with Wear OS, and has committed to using Wear OS on its future smartwatch products. The underlying codebase was also upgraded to Android [36][37] Wear OS will be available to Wear OS devices running Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear system on chip, and will be an opt-in upgrade requiring a factory reset to install.[38]

Features[edit]

Wear OS can synchronize notifications from a paired device, and supports voice control with the "OK Google" hotword along with gesture-based input.[39] Wear OS integrates with Google services such as the Google Assistant and Google mobile services (including Gmail, Google Maps, and Google Pay), as well as third-party watch apps from Play Store.[40][41] From the watch face, the user can swipe up to access their notifications, down to access a quick settings panel, from the left to view their personalized Google feed, and the right to view Google Fit.[39] Via Google Fit and similar applications, Wear OS supports ride and run tracking, and devices containing heart rate sensors can perform a reading on-demand, or at intervals throughout the day.[42] The watch can control media being played on streamed on paired devices.

The best Wear OS watches on offer

Included in this guide:

With so many options, it can feel tricky to know where to begin when finding the best Wear OS watch. Picking the right set of features as well as the right style is key, and that's before you consider your budget. 

To help you narrow things down, we've tested pretty much every smartwatch running Google’s software on the market to bring you this definitive list of the best Wear OS watches going. It's regularly updated so you can be sure that the advice is current with the latest developments in Wear OS. 

The list includes major brand names like Huawei, Fossil, TicWatch and Misfit, because they all offer the best Wear OS experience. However, the list doesn't include any watches from Fitbit and only one from Samsung as the majority of these wearables use their own operating system which provide different strengths to Wear OS. 

When choosing a Wear OS watch, it's important to think about the design too. After all, you're wearing it so you want it to suit you. For the most part, the Wear OS remains the same but the style is what differs. Expect software that has a clean interface and focuses on providing you with notifications from your phone while also offering physical sensors to track your health and fitness. There's a watch for every budget too so everyone should be happy here.

Most of the wearables here have heart rate sensors with some also offering GPS built-in. That means when you go for a walk or run, your watch can still track your route even if you don't take your phone with you. Some also have NFC so you can make contactless payments, while all the watches on this list will count your steps and calories. It's these little things that make a Wear OS watch so much more than just a watch.

We've included only the most recent Wear OS products so you're guaranteed to have the latest software with no risk of outdated hardware, but make sure to read the individual reviews for each smartwatch to ensure you get the one that best suits your needs, tastes, and budget.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are coming up at the end of November and we're expecting to see plenty of great offers. Keep an eye on our look at the best smartwatch Black Friday deals for more details, as well as the best smartwatch Cyber Monday deals.

Best Wear OS watch

Battery duration: Two days

Charging method: Qi wireless charging

IP rating: IP68

Connectivity: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS

Reasons to buy

+Fantastic performance+Lightweight design

Reasons to avoid

-No rotating bezel-Limited compatibility

Returning to Wear OS means the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is now the best Wear OS watch out there. It doesn't use a typical Wear OS UI, embracing One UI Watch 3 instead, but it's still a top-end smartwatch that can track workouts along with mostly everything else you can think of.

That comes at a price for iOS owners (don't count on it working with your iPhone) and you'll need a Samsung smartphone to gain features such as blood pressure or ECG measurements, but it's the right combination, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 offers great looks, decent battery life, and speedy performance. 

Fitness enthusiasts will particularly appreciate the new 3-in-1 BioActive Sensor that means the watch can track your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and body composition, right down to skeletal muscle mass and body fat percentage.

Reasons to buy

+Lightweight design+Powerful watch

Reasons to avoid

-Lacks high-end features-GPS can be slow

Looking for the greatest Wear OS watch money can buy? We currently think that's the Fossil Sport. It's not the very best smartwatch overall, and it doesn't boast many unique features but it does offer a fantastic all round package.

The Fossil Sport is a great combination of value and features in a lightweight body that you're able to wear comfortably day-to-day or when you're working out. There's GPS and the battery life often lasts around two days.

It was one of the first smartwatches to sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear chipset. That means this watch offers a smoother experience than a lot of the others in this list.

Overall, if you're looking for a smoother experience or an easy to use smartwatch. you're almost certain to enjoy the Fossil Sport.

App doesn’t work, interferes with watch

This app is completely ridiculous, my watch won’t stay connected if I leave my phone 10 ft away from me. It is excruciatingly slow and has really no features in the app that aren’t features within the watch settings. The funny part about it is, I had to reinstall Wear OS because I thought maybe that would help. But I noticed that once I had uninstalled the app, al of a sudden the watch sped up, and was functioning much more quickly. But of course you have to have the app for the watch to work. This is definitely a problem from google wear OS, and not my watch. You guys need to scrap it and rebuild from the ground up. I usually set google to a high standard with anything. This app is a joke. Since the app is so slow and nonfunctional, I had to reset to factory setting five times for it to finish setup without a crash. It spent me the whole day. And I believe that is ridiculous- it should’ve been able to set up and get working at an hour TOPS. Can we know if this is getting resolved ever so we can get functions watches, or should we all just say enough is enough and get a watch that has an actually functional OS?

iPhone X max

I just bought a Movado conect In Rose gold and downloaded the wear OS app. At first, I was a little disappointed when I read the reviews that you couldn’t get messages or calls if you had an iPhone but I love Movado watches and I wasn’t going to return it. At first, I wasn’t able to get text or calls but after syncing my email account I was able to get all my contacts, text messages on my watch as well as calls. I don’t know if I’m the only one experiencing this; but I’m able to read all texts on my watch as well as take the calls on my watch. I can talk and they can hear me but I can’t hear them on my watch but I didn’t buy the watch to talk to people for that I have my phone. I’m happy with just been able to read the texts on my watch and been able to see who’s calling me before I pick up my phone. I have no problems with connectivity so far, my watch has stayed connected the whole time and I get all my emails and calendars appointments. I can track my heart rate and steps as well as calories. I love this watch. So far no problems.

Terrible Application

I got this watch thinking that it was an alternative to the Apple Watch. I’ve now had this watch for 3 months and I couldn’t be more disappointed in a product. I’d like to think that the main issue is this “wear os by google” application and not the actually watch, but I could be mistaken. My watch is connected to my phone roughly 3 minutes of the entire day, it is continuously trying to download a systems update, it always shows that I’ve walked 0 steps during the day, and despite having Bluetooth and WiFi turned on “automatic”, I NEVER have access to internet. The app tells you to “tap the reconnect icon on your watch”which gets you nowhere. The help page says to go to “wear os by google > connectivity > WiFi > add network”. It’s interesting advice considering my app is up to date and there is no such option as “connectivity”. I absolutely hate leaving poor reviews like this, but I feel like others should know what they are getting themselves into if they opt for this product. I wouldn’t waste my money on any product that requires this application to operate, until the developers give this application a degree upgrade.
