ANDROID WEAR 2.0
NEXT GEN GOOGLE SMARTWATCH OS
Android Wear 2.0 has Standalone apps:
Standalone apps are the biggest change for the Wear ecosystem to date. In 2.0 you don’t need your phone nearby to use apps on your Android Wear device. Rather, using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or cellular instead of depending on a tethered phone or cloud syncing, your smartwatch remains much more functional.
Android Wear 2.0: Play Store
As part of the grand untethering of phone and watch, Android Wear 2.0 now includes a standalone Play Store, meaning you’re able to browse and download apps right to your smartwatch. Just install apps on your watch; no need to install apps on the phone.
Android Wear 2.0 best in Fitness
Android Wear is becoming a better place for fitness lovers. Especially with the arrival of the likes of the Moto 360 Sport, Polar M600, Nixon’s The Mission and the New Balance RunIQ. And the new LG Watch Sport too.
If you love working out with music, then it’s much easier to launch your workout playlist, whether that’s from Spotify or another music service, straight from the Wear homescreen.
