Google to release Android Wear 2.0 on October 15

Android Wear

Although it feels like forever since Android Wear was announced, it’s still a relatively new OS. While the current functionality of Google’s smartwatch OS is pretty neat, there’s still a lot of room for improvement. And according to a new revelation, we could see a major update to Android Wear as early as next month. Sources cited by Android Police are indicating that Google will announce Android Wear 2.0 on the 15th of October.

Since this is the first time we’re coming across that date with regards to a Google event, we’re not quite sure about its authenticity yet. But if it is indeed legitimate, it’s safe to assume that we’ll probably get to see the upcoming Nexus tablet as well. Google officials have hinted that Android Wear will start supporting features like GPS, so this could most likely be on the list of new features.

Sony’s Smartwatch 3 which went official yesterday was revealed to be packing GPS by default, so it is possible that Google is asking manufacturers to add GPS sensors in upcoming devices with official software support coming over the weeks.

What other features do you expect to see from Android Wear 2.0? Drop your thoughts below.
