One of the advantages of smartphones is having the ability to receive higher operating system updates, although in some cases the hardware limitations that cause a device do not allow for a higher OS update. But recently a report appears that claims if most users prefer to get a new OS update rather than having to buy a new device. Of course this will make the selling price of a smartphone becomes more expensive, to allow for a newer OS update in the future.
While smartphone users expect a higher OS update, but does it also apply to wearable devices? Just like smartphones, newer OS updates for wearable devices are also expected to be present, especially for Android Wear users who want new features on their wearables. The good news is, recently Google uploaded a list of wearble devices that are expected to receive Android Oreo updates.
The list of devices is posted on Google’s Android Wear Help page, and the list of devices is long enough. The device that dominates the list is wearable by Fossil, where there are five devices belonging to the list. Even the brand that still be a relative of Fossil like Diesel and Michael Kors also entered into the list.
According to Google, wearable devices that should have received Android Wear updates of the Oreo version include Q Venture Fossil, LG Watch Sport, Louis Vuitton Tambour, Michael Kors Sofie, and Montblanc Summit. Although many wearable devices that should get updates, but for release date is not known at this time. Here is a list of wearablet device that gets updated Android Wear version of Oreo.
