There is a plenty of things we have heard in past few days related to Android Wear 2.0 that it will allow users to search and install new apps directly from their smartwatches. There is also a possibility that one can find Google Assistant and also Android Pay as integral parts of Wear 2.0. Despite all these rumor mills doing overtime, no one is sure how much of these will be offered at the time of the launch.
Now, its remains to be seen that whether, as rumored Google will announce one or two flagship Android Wear devices which will be ‘Nexus-like’ which is made by OEMs with whom Google has already worked in past. The interesting thing is that Wear 2.0 will not be branded as ‘Pixel’ as it was expected.
The launch is a bit late than what it was previously decided. Google initially marked the end of 2016 as the release for the Android Wear 2.0 but later delayed it because of some issues needed to be addressed in the Developer Preview Builds.
