Google just changed the name of Android Wear to Wear OS .
The Android Wear brand introduced in 2014 is going away and being replaced with a new name: Wear OS. A new area of Google’s website has officially confirmed the change. Wear OS even has a new slogan: “Make every minute matter.” For now, that’s really all the news there is; since it works on both Android and iOS, Google’s smartwatch platform is being given a more flexible moniker that doesn’t tie it to a specific mobile operating system.And even though iPhone users don’t get the same amount of features as Android users, some of them are actually picking Wear OS over the Apple Watch.
