Google's Wear OS update has arrived


The smartwatch market is moving at a fast pace as Google releases Wear OS to keep up with Apple’s offering.

Google will be rolling out a software update for Smartwatches that use the Wear OS software today. This will be in fairly direct response to Apple launch of the Smartwatch series 4, and while the new update to wear OS is certainly an improvement, it’s still lagging behind Apple’s watchOS.

Take a look at our Samsung Galaxy Watch hands on.

Google’s Wear OS is a much more focused experience when you compare it to watchOS. The attempt is to keep the Smartwatch in a more focused role of fitness tracking and notification alerts, rather than a PDA on your wrist.

Take a look at our Apple Watch 4 article just here.

The broader issue is that Apple’s watchOS can be designed to run on more powerful processors and so doesn’t need to be quite so adaptable, whereas Wear OS must be able to run on more dated hardware and a larger variety of devices and will suffer for that.

The new update brings improved battery life along with several new interaction options:
  • Swipe right for the Google “Proactive Assistant”
  • Swipe left for Google Fit
  • Swipe up for your notifications
  • Swipe down for quick settings shortcuts
This update has seen a redesign of the software to make it as efficient and user-friendly as possible, and while it doesn’t have the utility or speed of Apple’s offering, it’s certainly a large improvement over its previous version.

Nokia 4.2 Review

At £150, Nokia's budget handset has to be compared to the very best cheap phones. How does it stack up?
Should I Buy The Nokia 4.2?
The 4.2 has shown that Nokia can still produce good hardware, and combined with the slick user interface on Android One it provides an enjoyable user experience. This fully featured modern handset produces consistently solid performance, with above average cameras and impressive battery life. 
However, it is let down by a low resolution screen, poor implementation of biometrics and some stubborn design choices.

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (2019) Review

Should I buy the 15in MacBook Pro (2019)?
You’ll need to weigh up how much you need an incredibly powerful Mac laptop with concerns about the keyboard, but the new 9th generation 8-core processors should sweeten the deal.
