Samsung Galaxy Watch3: Update to Wear OS 3.0 teased

The newly announced Samsung Galaxy Watch4 will be the first smartwatch to use Google Wear OS 3.0. However, the predecessor might also turn its back on the Tizen OS, contrary to Samsung’s statement a few months ago. At least, that is what emerges from a new teaser.

Is Wear OS 3.0 coming to the Galaxy Watch3?

A few months ago, Samsung had still claimed in connection with its cooperation with Google that the Galaxy Watch3 would not receive an update to Google Wear OS 3.0. However, this plan now seems to have changed, as can be seen from a teaser from Samsung Singapore.

In connection with the presentation of the new Samsung Galaxy Watch4 generation with One UI Watch based on Google Wear OS 3.0, these indicate that there will be no generation conflict at Samsung in the area of wearables.

An example picture shows the Galaxy Watch3 and the text “Galaxy Watch 3 with new Wear OS” – the statement could hardly be clearer. So far, the Galaxy Watch3 relies on Samsung’s in-house Tizen OS.

The Galaxy Watch 3 certainly meets the technical requirements for the use of Google Wear OS 3.0 thanks to Exynos 9110 and 1 GB RAM. Whether the teaser from Samsung Singapore is simply a mistake or whether the Koreans actually give in regarding the operating system is still unclear at the moment.

However, even if the Wear OS update for the Samsung Galaxy Watch3 should come, that will probably not be the case until next year. Google had already confirmed that the new software will be distributed to “selected smartwatches” starting in the second half of 2022. These include, for example, the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3, the TicWatch E3 and the sixth generation of Fossil smartwatches.
