Wear OS 3 finally fixes the problems Android watches have had for years

It’s been a very, very long time since I’ve enjoyed owning a smartwatch. The biggest problem was that, no matter what operating system I tried, Android smartwatches were just such second-rate experiences. Whether that was Wear OS, Samsung’s Tizen, or one of the many fitness-focused brands, nothing felt particularly nice to wear on a daily basis.

That all changed with Wear OS 3, but I was late to the party by well over a year. Now, that doesn’t mean I hadn’t used one before, it was just that I didn’t care too much after so many years of disappointment. I modeled the Galaxy Watch 4 at our hands-on (opens in new tab) session and also got my paws on the Galaxy Watch 5 at that hands-on (opens in new tab).
