Google has officially announced Android Wear 2.0 today, which includes a redesigned user interface, modular watch faces, smart reply functionality, better Google Fit/Assistant integration and Google Play support.
However, for Sony SmartWatch 3 owners, all of this is a moot point. Google officially announced which watches will get the update and, unfortunately, the SW3 is not on the list. The SmartWatch 3 was announced back in September 2014, so it is one of the older Android Wear smartwatches in the market. Despite this, there was some hope that the SW3 may receive this next big Android Wear update.
Sony uses a Broadcom processor in the SmartWatch 3, so maybe this was a reason which hindered Sony in updating the SW3. Or, given the age of the smart watch, maybe Sony did not feel it made economic sense to update it. Either way, if you’re still rocking the SW3 how do you feel about this news? We’d love to hear your comments below.
