Android Wear has been around for a while now, but it hasn't picked up the pace as Google would have wanted. It can be used to help set up other Android devices near the phone, and it clearly shows "Wear OS" and a new logo with echoes of the Google Assistant design. Whatever the reason for the apparent stagnation in the Android Wear ecosystem, it appears that Google is looking to shake things up-starting with a rebranding of the OS to 'Wear OS'.

The new icon appears to be the letter "W" in Google's traditional color scheme and would represent the new moniker which might be "Watch OS". Assuming it does happen, the company is likely to announce it at this year's annual I/O conference, which, according to the Google Developers' Twitter account, will take place from May 8 to May 10. Initially, a coded tweet was posted providing the first clue and it is a picture of a bunch of binary codes.

We decompiled the Google Play Services beta APK, and indeed found several references to Wear OS throughout the strings. There's that confusion that Android Wear devices are specific to Android, yet this isn't true. This latest upgrade Android 2.8 should make reading on the smart watch much easier as compared to its predecessor. One Reddit user speculates that it may be because their smart watches are compatible with not only Android but also iOS platforms. Your smart wearable will receive the notification for the upgrade or you can simply open settings and check for new update.
