However, the information from Qualcomm and Google is far from guaranteeing that the update will come.
Samsung is also helping to develop Wear OS, Google’s smart broadcast system, which will soon receive the long-awaited and very important update. The system is already running on the new Galaxy Watch smartwatch, but what about Wear OS-based watches on the market? Can they upgrade to the new system?
Qualcomm recently sent a notice to XDA, confirming that the upgrade is theoretically possible. Qualcomm said that it is the Snapdragon Wear 3100 and Snapdragon Wear 4100, 4100+ chips that can support Wear OS 3.0 on smart watches.
In theory, this means that many smartphones can be upgraded to the new Wear OS, provided that this is what the manufacturer wants.Finally, he is also the spokesperson of Google Publish Exchange on the subject. For Google, the user experience has not been determined to be elementary, and there is currently no smart watch, whether it will be upgraded. There are many technical requirements for optimizing everything correctly-but not all of them are clear.
Therefore, you only need to know that upgrades are possible in principle, but there is no guarantee that any manufacturer will take advantage of this option and what the fundamental requirements are. However, there are already so many Wear OS-based watches on the market, and manufacturers want to realize that their customers buy watches not months but years, and do not want their wearable devices to become obsolete anytime soon.
