Maybe your are willing to learn... maybe you port Wear OS.

If somebody is interested in ROOT...
I could offer SM-R840 and/or SM-R850 Root for BTHA Version.
Not tested yet... :D

I hate to say it, but WearOS might be on life support. So no Apple or Samsung, obviously...Moto appears pretty much done with smartwatches....Huawei might be banned in the US...So not many people left making good WearOS watches, for starters. And no one with the cutting edge tech of Apple or Samsung, or even Fitbit really.

Fitbit might the only chance to save WearOS. Polar/Garmin have some serious hardware, but they are gaudy and beastly fitness devices. I'd consider springing for TAG, if they had all the bells and whistles of Apple or Samsung. Fossil has some nice watches out there but in terms of features they're always 1-2 generations behind.

GW4 seems based on Android R aka 11 aka no idea... look here to start Farting:

GW4 has 450 x 450 Pixel:

No idea why also 720 x 720 inside... maybe higher Res in """near future"""...


Interesting Body Fat measurement... please fart to our Tizen deviceS:

About apps... I have not full access... and can't test... but can't find really interesting apps for me...
Maybe 1 day in Future I see some cool Wear Apps for me too...

Only as info. :alien:

Best Regards

One of the reasons for having Wear OS in GW3 is the absence of Samsung pay in the Czech Republic. So GW4 will be the first Samsung watch with which it will be possible to pay in the Czech Republic. I have six months of GW3 titanium and I'm quite annoyed that I can't pay with them.

I'm not sure if the GW3 processor is even capable of running WearOS. Probably.

But there are other hardware differences that would make this very difficult if not impossible. The chance of WearOS coming to GW3 in the next year, maybe ever, is extremely remote.

You're better off selling your GW3 and putting the money towards GW4.

    Since this watch is using the same SoC on the Pixel Watch, is there any chance of getting WearOS?
