Google just turned simply the heat on their own wearables platform, by announcing that both Samsung and Fitbit will shift to Google Wear OS going forward. The whole part of the multi-hour keynote devoted to Wear OS was just about 10 minutes, which covered brief looks from both Fitbit and Samsung executives, as well as Google’s own executive, Sameer Samat. And that’s about where the details ended for Samsung. He went on to make 2 statements. The genuine concern is will Fitbit/Google/Samsung be able to find the best mix of chipsets that’ll satisfy the ever-present battery issues for Wear OS, in terms of what a normal Fitbit customer would anticipate with respect to week-long battery life?
