The smart wearable market seems to have an interesting future ahead as more and more iconic brands prepare to launch their first smartwatches. Swatch is one of these brands and, according to Bloomberg, the Swiss company plans to launch its own operating system for wearables and the first smartwatch to run it by the end of 2018.

Last week, Swatch's CEO Nick Hayek revealed in an interview that the Tissot brand will launch a smartwatch loaded with the new operating system "around the end of 2018" and revealed that this upcoming wearable will offer excellent autonomy and will also be able to protect the user's data better than similar devices currently on the market.

The best part of the story is that Swatch plans to supply this upcoming operating system to third parties as well and, according to Hayek, the company received about 100 requests for more details, half coming from emerging US-based companies that might bet on something different than Android and iOS.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
