Wear OS gets Google Fit and improved notifications
Last week, Google updated Wear OS for all supported devices, delivering what the tech giant calls "proactive and personalized help" and is the most health-focused update of this mobile platform for wearables released so far.
According to SlashGear, these are the essential changes that come with the latest Wear OS update:
- Google Fit with health-related tips without any user input needed
- new notification system with easier access to notifications, including browsing and dismissing, swipe down for shortcuts and swipe up for notifications, tap messages to respond using pre-written replies
- Google Assistant with flight status and hotel reservation notifications, as well as Google Calendar notifications, suggestions including restaurants near you, and various other reminders
As usual, those who own a Wear OS device should go to Settings > System > About > System Updates and check for the availability of the new firmware. If nothing shows up, you should try again in a few days. If you get the update, it would be nice to drop a comment below and let us know what you think about it once it's done.
