With Google taking the biggest leap with its update to the Android Wear, smartwatch manufacturers now get ready to test and refine it for their own versions. It may be a long wait, but it would be worth it. The new OS has a plethora of upgrades and features that have finally given shape to a true smartwatch experience.
But which devices would get the upgrades? Here are 4 devices that are bound to get privileged treatment from their manufacturers.
Google's own Moto 360 is obviously on the priority list and will be the first for rollout. No doubt the device is quite aged by now, but it still fairs better than the competition with a display of 1.56-inches and also a heart rate monitor.
The Huawei Watch is next on our list. And throughout Google's I/O 2016, the Android Wear was being shown off through the same device. The perfectly round UI fits the device screen and the premium feel of the device gives it a cool factor.
LG has had the Urbane watch on the market for some time now India. But due to the lacking features of Android Wear, neither did this device have much success. But with version 2.0 out for testing, it could breathe new life into LG smartphone owners and boost sales this year.
Asus has been selling its smartphones with great success. And the Asus ZenWatch 2 is also bound to receive the updates first. The watch faces and UI have been customized to suit Asus' own phone UI as well. When version 2.0 kicks into the device, we will have to wait and see how Asus will bring a more beautiful UI than the competition.
