Google and Samsung are integrating Wear OS and Tizen

Another sign of the growing alliance between Google and Samsung is that the two companies have announced the full integration of Wear OS with the Tizen-based software platform that has been the basis of Samsung's wearables for many years.

The resulting platform is currently called Wear for short, although that may not be the final name.

General voltage advantages include a significant increase in battery life, reduced application charging time by 30%, and smoother animation effects.

The joint efforts of both sides have also made life easier for developers and created a centralized smart watch operating system for Android platform.

Google is also committed to bringing you more app suites and watch faces than ever before.

Google Books: All device manufacturers can add customized user experiences based on the platform, and developers can use Android tools they know to create unique platform and system apps.

It is believed that Samsung will continue to use its popular rotating bezel on devices in the future, but it has completed the manufacture of smartwatches that only apply to the Tizen system.

There will also be a standalone version of Google Maps (meaning your phone doesn't need to be close to the phone), while the YouTube Music app supports offline downloads and Spotify downloads for offline through the Wear smartwatch.

Samsung has confirmed that upcoming Galaxy smartwatches can run on this unified platform and Fitbit Premium devices can work on this platform as well.

In addition to integrating technologies from both platforms, the new Wear OS has been enhanced to allow multitasking between wrist applications.

Fitbit also includes some of the most popular fitness tracking features that can help the platform grow into a health tool.

Starting this week, Google will introduce improved Kotlin support for Wear. Developers can access new APIs for health and continuous activity services so that more back-end software can offer their most useful applications.

Samsung has kept its promise of a three-year software update for existing products and has given customers the option to export their health data for use in future devices.
