What’s next for Android smartwatches: the clock is ticking
Wear OS is in a much better place that it was six months ago. In the new 2.1 update, Google changed the main watch face and everything is simpler and easier to use. Pair that with news of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 3100 processor and smartwatches for Android users start looking a lot less grim. In this week’s Processor, Dieter revisits what’s next for Wear OS smartwatches.

What would convince you to buy a Wear OS smartwatch?
Can it run Doom?
Is it TicWatch or Pixel Watch?
It's still possible to operate it without touching the watch?
Which is the best smarwatch available for Android phones
I want a fully standalone, waterprooft smart watch with a good battery and nice design. Untill then these things are not for me.
the dumbest decision to make while purchasing a watch is to buy a hybrid watch….like why?!? Correct me but I think that the major reason of owning a smartwatch is using less your smartphones, right?!
why can't anyone just make a perfect wear os?
Exactly. Fitness, notifications and time are the main factors. For me, fitness is the most important reason and I think that makes smartwatches worth it. If I didn't have any interest in fitness, I don't really think smartwatches are worth it. There is only so much watch apps can do with such a tiny screen where it is just better just to take out your phone so I can't really blame for limited amount of watch apps.
Google is probably making an Apple Watch killer with lot's of AI about fitness tracking etc…, Pixel Watch
I would love to replace my Ticwatch E with a Pixel Watch.
Good video. I still don't get why the news Wear OS watches don't make use of the new 3100 CPU Snapdragon. I understood it's not a big boost but when I'm about to pay 250-350€ I obviously don't want to buy ancient hardware, right?
2:30 what the F**k does that suppose to mean? 1 day? 2 days?

I would like to know more about the galaxy watch!!
Dude u guys are so cool. Stop writing dumbshit about pewds for cluckbait.. it just makes me not want to watch ur videos
Does the fossil explorist has amoled display?
Grade review and honest feedback about the product. I would enjoy watching another review in the future.
Very informative video. I actually just bought the Fossil watch you are wearing. Now I'll know how to use it.
Wish Pebble were here
