We recently reported that Google was rebranding its Android Wear operating system into Wear OS by Google, while adding a few new features to their new version of the OS. Soon thereafter, Google released a list of all watches receiving the Oreo (8.0) update.

The list includes:

  • Casio PRO TREK Smart WSD-F20
  • Casio WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch
  • Diesel Full Guard
  • Emporio Armani Connected
  • Fossil Q Control
  • Fossil Q Explorist
  • Fossil Q Founder 2.0
  • Fossil Q Marshal
  • Fossil Q Venture
  • Fossil Q Wander
  • Guess Connect
  • Gc Connect
  • Huawei Watch 2 (both cellular & non-cellular versions)
  • Hugo BOSS BOSS Touch
  • Kate Spade Scallop
  • LG Watch Sport
  • LG Watch Style
  • Louis Vuitton Tambour
  • Misfit Vapor
  • Michael Kors Access Bradshaw
  • Michael Kors Access Dylan
  • Michael Kors Access Grayson
  • Michael Kors Sofie
  • Montblanc Summit
  • Movado Connect
  • Mobvoi Ticwatch S & E
  • Nixon Mission
  • Polar M600
  • Skagen Falster Smartwatch
  • TAG Heuer Connected Modular 41
  • TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45
  • Tommy Hilfiger 24/7 You
  • ZTE Quartz

So far, no watch has been dropped out in the general roll-out from Android Wear to Wear OS, although some watches like the Huawei Watch 1, Sony Smartwatch 3, Moto 360 v2 and a few others have never received the 8.0 Oreo update.

Since Android Wear works through an app generating most of the UI, the update will be automatic through the Google Play Store, but the system itself might retain the name Android Wear in system files, the settings and some menus for some watches.

By renaming their operating system into Wear OS, Google is actively trying to bring more iOS users to use their watch system. They have been trying to do so ever since they realized that 1 in 3 users of Android Wear, now renamed Wear OS, are also using an iPhone. Their goal is to connect both worlds to try and compete with Apple's watchOS.
