Google’s update gives Wear OS a breath of fresh air


If you think that Google’s Wear OS is getting a bit long in the tooth and could do with some updates and changes, you’ll be pleased to learn that Google has done just that. The company has recently introduced an update that brings some changes to its Fit health tracking app, as well as introducing additional tiles that users can use on their smartwatch.

Starting with the tiles, Wear OS users will now be able to add tiles such as Workouts, Weather, and Breathe. This provides users with additional shortcuts to some of Wear OS’ features, like with the Workouts tile, users will can quickly access recent workouts, display metrics while they are exercising, and so on. The Weather tile will also get a new look that Google claims will be easier on the eyes, and last but not least, the new Breathe tile will help you perform guided breathing exercises if that is your thing.

As with the Fit app, the app will now do a better job at pulling tracking information from your other connected devices, so you’ll be able to see more data at a glance like how many steps you’ve taken, hearts points progression, a summary of everything, trends over time, weight, and blood pressure, and so on.

These updates are expected to begin rolling out over the next few days, so if you don’t see these changes yet, don’t worry as it should eventually make its way to you.
