Unlike Android 12, nothing significant has leaked about the new version of Wear OS, but it must be good to convince Samsung to give up Tizen, which ended up being a pretty good if app-poor smartwatch operating system.
Wear OS has suffered from significant neglect over the years, being generally slow, poorly developed over time, and lacking support for faster and more modern operating systems. What it did have however was good support from developers, which is likely part of the reason Samsung is abandoning Tizen.
Is there any particular feature our readers want in the next version of Wear OS? Let us know below.
