Operating system Wear OS, which in recent years has not played a special role in the market, in the third quarter became the second most popular after watchOS.

More specifically, watchOS took 21.8% of the market, while Wear OS managed to take 17.3%. At the same time, a year earlier, the shares of these fixed assets were 28% and 3.2%, respectively.

Samsung got down to business and everything was fine.  Share of Wear OS thanks to Galaxy Watch 4 has grown more than fivefold

The situation is explained as simply as possible. Recall that the new generation of Samsung smartwatches has switched to Wear OS, and Samsung watches are very popular. In the third quarter, they took 14.4%, ranking second after Apple watches. At the same time, Tizen’s share immediately collapsed several times. Unfortunately, the source for some reason forgot to indicate the share of this OS in its diagrams, but visually everything is readable.

As for the rest of the OS, Amazfit took third place, followed by Fitbit, Huawei LiteOS and Garmin can also be highlighted.

As a result, it turns out that as soon as Samsung switched to Wear OS, the popularity of this system in the market automatically increased significantly. This shows that sometimes the problem may lie not in the software product, but in the brands.

In addition to yesterday’s rumors of a Google smartwatch that should finally come out next year, a supposedly official promotional image of the device has surfaced on the web.

Image shared by insider Jon Prosser. On the one hand, not all of his leaks were eventually confirmed, on the other, he spoke about the Pixel Watch back in April, in particular, calling the very codename Rohan. In addition, its renders match the latest watch description where available. At the same time, Prosser said that the watch could be shown in the fall along with the Pixel 6, but it could also be delayed.

So, in the new screenshot we see the clock with a design very similar to the spring renders. The device is minimalistic, it has one control in the form of a wheel and a rounded protective glass.

Looks like Google will finally release their own smartwatch. After a series of annual rumors, data emerged that the announcement of the device is scheduled for 2022.

The device’s codename is Rohan. At the same time, it is not yet clear whether the watch will be called the Pixel Watch, although this is the most logical option at first glance. It is also reported that the watch will not be cheap and will compete with the Apple Watch.

In addition, the source talks about integrating Fitbit features into the Wear OS that the watch will run on. This aspect was called Nightlight. As a reminder, Fitbit is now owned by Google.

It is also known about the round display, the absence of a physical frame, which may hint at a rounded glass, and the need to charge the watch every day, that is, the novelty cannot boast of autonomy, but in general this is true for most full-fledged smartwatches on the market.
