Having a smartwatch in 2020 is no longer a thing for nerds or geeks. Smart watches have become part of our lives with considerable improvements over the years and their focus on health and well-being.
Right now we have two major platforms fighting for first place. Apple’s WatchOS and Google’s WearOS. Still, in this segment there is much more competition than in smartphones. Samsung, Huawei, OPPO or even Xiaomi use their operating system on their smartwatches.
Google preferred Apple’s WatchOS to WearOS
However, Google’s new decision leaves us to question how much the company believes in its systems. Google has just launched its latest YouTube Music app for Apple’s smart watches …
That is, the application is made by Google, YouTube belongs to Google and Wear OS is also from Google. However, the company decided to give the iPhone the most tasty snack to all users.
This is because those who have an Apple Watch cannot pair it with a smartphone other than a cracked apple. Incidentally, Apple is the only one that can boast at this point in creating a system as restricted as this one. However, it only creates it because the competitors still don’t understand the move and “tassels” like this one from YouTube Music.
WearOS has a lot to evolve
I haven’t used a WearOS from Google in a few months, however, there is nothing to call me back. My experience with WearOS always leaves something to be desired.
As much as the watch even has good specifications, there is no time that the software does not suffer. The User Interface itself is far from being as minimal and simple as the Apple WatchOS.
I am sincerely looking forward to seeing Google evolve the smart watch system. Who knows when the company launches its smartwatch, take a closer look at these decisions.
