The excitement of the upcoming Wear OS version, collaborative efforts between Google, Fitbit, and Samsung, are partially moistened by smart uncertainty, will actually receive updates. Unlike smartphones, updates to smartwatches resemble Android’s early days where OEM determines which model gets updates and stays. It seems that a little smartwatch maker is willing to be committed to pushing updates to existing smartwatches, at least except for mobvoi which might update the latest Ticwatch Pro 3 this year when the update uses OS out.
On the one hand, it can be understood that newer software with newer features may require newer hardware. When someone considers that most of using the SmartWatch OS today run on a three-year-old Qualcomm Snapdragon, use 3100 chipsets itself is a small upgrade above Snapdragon Wear 2100 of 2016, it looks like this smart smart will not be able to handle new loads, software More advanced will be placed on it.
On the other hand, it also doesn’t look good for accessories that is expected to last longer than a smartphone. This smartwatch is also mostly made by fashion brands that have not been actually directly involved in the cellular technology market until it can be used. In other words, the ability of this smartwatch maker to support their products outside the single OS version is now questionable.
Fossils, for example, have confirmed older smart watches will not get updates and have to buy a premium model (read: expensive) that will come to experience new OS use. Fortunately, the superior owners of Mobvoi can now breathe a little easier to know that the company does not plan to leave them so fast. According to customer representatives, at least Ticwatch Pro 3 will get what is called “Wear OS 3.0”.
Then again, the Ticwacth Pro 3 has become an outlier because only one runs on the latest Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform, meaning it might already have hardware. This statement also comes from customer support that may not be fully aware of the company’s plan. Unfortunately, even if Mobvoi does come, it won’t be the same story for other smart watches, many of which haven’t even received the latest minor updates.
