Rounding out the other improvements, support Bluetooth 5, standard and upgrade 4G modem for faster mobile data connections. The General said the faster LTE modem should improve services, such as maps, music stream, and voice assistant.
What’s the relationship?
But this two on and Google installed the operating system platform to play a small role in the broader of the table ecosystem.
In the first quarter, by 2020, only 4. 2%of all smart watch sales are running Google installed the operating system platform, according to Vincent Thielke analyst in Cana Leith. Compared to Apple’s 36. 3%of the market share in the same period, it is easy to see how far back Google’s operating system sits. And the 66 million smart watches sold in 2019, Thielke is estimated that only 5. 6 million with a high of chips, with the Wear OS to do a lot of 56 per cent. (The rest is mainly smart watch from the Chinese manufacturers used different processor.)
“Wear operating system has a constantly growing year over year,”Thielke said. “It did not grow in Q1 2019, it also did not grow in Q1 2020. I think one of the reasons is that this is a mere falling behind other traffic platform. Other platforms have a real priority of the health characteristics—especially with regard to heart rate and since we have already seen Wear operating system platform, we just haven’t seen as strong of a push. Limited health characteristics.”
Apple introduced an electrocardiogram in a series of 4 Apple looking to 2018, it is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other governments around the world. Samsung has recently seen the South Korean government approved a similar function in its watches, which run the company whether they have sufficient permissions to the operating system.
Samsung, currently in the third table of the market as the first quarter, to provide sleep tracking in it watch. Apple is also introducing the same feature later in the year in the next version. Google is not the driver’s sleep tracking function of the Wear OS, however, although you can use third-party programs. In addition, wearing of the operating system does not include support for ECG. The overall health and health services through the operating system is also more limited in what you can find in smart watches and fitness tracking data, as well as gas.
Something else to keep the Wear OS, according to Thielke, is the lack of procedures on the platform. Major platforms like Apple, and Samsung has enough permissions, with their large and active user base, more attractive to wear and tear of the operating system, because the target application developers, Thielke said.
This is Google’s data collection. The agreement is still pending regulatory approval, but if successful, it will provide a much larger user base of Google to learn. It will also give the company access to the smart fitness tracking capabilities, including advanced cardiac and sleep tracking functions. All this does not happen quickly however, as the collection of data and the wear and tear of the operating system will need a lot of development time.
Thielke also believe that Google Wedding Wear operating system and data may reduce the data of the brand, due to Google’s poor track record with their own wearable platform, not to mention the broad public concern about Google’s data collection practices. He believes that the best way is to Google the two brands separate, because it’s working on the next generation version of Wear operating system, will be in advantage.
However, even if these changes to achieve, it is unlikely Google will make a lot of progress in the market. See Cana Liss data from the first quarter, by 2020, Thielke said Wear operating system and data, combined only reach 1. 5 million smart watches sold. This is still far behind Apple, Huawei, and Samsung.
