The company Google presents the new version of the platform dedicated to the devices wearable’s – Android Wear 2.0. Along with the new system debut two smartphones prepared by LG – LG Watch Style and LG Watch Sport.
Dedicated store, more comfortable answers
We start with the quick review of the new system. Android Wear 2.0 includes several changes, compared to the previous version of the system. The system counts mainly with the store itself with the applications – it is available in the clock and allows to download the applications directly to the clock – of course in the models that can be connected to the network. The application of the messages has also changed. It will be easier to respond, we can dictate, write on the keyboard or hand and draw the emoticons. Simply deploy the notification of the message. The clock will also propose “smart suggestions”, adjusted to the context.
More practical spheres, Google Fit and payments
Clock spheres have been improved. In addition to more spherical versions and easier editing, they can submit more notifications and “action” – for example, we will be able to request an Uber trip with a single touch of the dial. The manufacturer has also improved the fitness options. Now Google Fit records the activity not only when we are running or walking, but also riding bicycles or doing other exercises – for example, record arm push-ups or squats. In Android Wear 2.0 will also appear Android Pay and Google Assistant. The latter for now is available only in English or German.
