Google wants to revive Wear OS and for that it has been trying to improve this system dedicated to its partners’ smartwatches. The novelties arrive in a well-defined way and renew everything that was available before.

To eliminate one of the most frequently reported problems, Google has now teamed up with Vodafone. This partnership will now work in a focused way to ensure that the smartwatch battery lasts longer.




Like any electronic device, smartwatches also need good energy management. These have naturally smaller batteries, which increases the need for more efficient battery management and consumption.

One of the most frequently reported problems in Wear OS is this management, which is not always performed efficiently. Google has been trying for several years to overcome this problem and therefore allied and now to a partner that can help you, Vodafone.

Vodafone's idea is to create a new way to connect smartwatches to the Internet to significantly improve autonomy. The idea is that instead of a constant connection to the grid, the clocks turn on intermittently every now and then, saving a lot of energy in the process.

This scenario will be possible thanks to a new API developed for systems like Wear OS and which is being finalized together with Google. The new API is expected to be implemented soon in future versions of Wear OS.

In addition, this API should not be restricted to Google's operating system and Vodafone revealed that there are more companies interested. The idea is the same as that associated with Wear OS and smartwatches, to improve the autonomy of your wearables.

One of the biggest areas of improvement in Wear OS is precisely the battery and its consumption. The competition, where it fits to Huawei and others, can already guarantee autonomy of 14 days in similar equipment.
