The will-it-or-won’t-it debate of whether the Samsung Galaxy Watch will run Wear OS continues today with a new report that leans toward the “won’t” side of things.
The Galaxy Watch will run Tizen 4.0 out of the box. That’s according to a report from SamMobile, who reaffirms that the smartwatch will also include Samsung’s Bixby assistant.
Most of Samsung’s previous smartwatches have run the company’s own Tizen OS, so it kind of makes sense that the Galaxy Watch will, too. It might be cool to see the device launch with Wear OS, especially since there aren’t a ton of high-profile Wear OS smartwatches coming out lately, but it doesn’t sound like that’ll be the case.
If you had the choice, would you rather Samsung use Tizen or Wear OS on the Galaxy Watch?
