For those folks that have been waiting impatiently for the release of Android Wear 2.0 it looks like early February is when you can expect its release. This means you won’t have to wait much longer for things like a dedicated watch app store or a newly refreshed UI.
Google has been sending out emails to developers to make sure their apps are ready for the launch so they take advantage of the new standalone feature that allows the app to work independently of any mobile device. This is the feature I have been looking forward to most as it will begin to break the dependency between the watch and having to be tethered to a device. Smart watches getting smarter FTW!
Of course this may also be the perfect time for some new Android Wear watches to be released which would make the first quarter of 2017 extra sweet. I for one cannot wait for the release just to see how much polish Google has added to an already great platform. Who’s excited?!!
