(Pocket-lint) – If you want to try out Google’s latest and greatest smartwatch operating system, Wear OS 3, the only way to do so currently is with the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic.
Being Samsung devices, both of these watches are superimposed on Samsung’s One UI 3. So we still haven’t had a look at the stock Wear OS 3.
Now, thanks to some leaked screenshots found on the Wear OS companion apps listing in the Play Store, we finally have a look at the operating system in its stock form.
The Google Assistant tile got a major overhaul that makes it much more in line with the experience on Android 12.
The step counter has undergone some changes and the new icon and color scheme suggest it could be moved to Fitbit rather than the current Google Fit solution.
We also see a subtle overhaul of incoming message notifications, which now feature the sender’s avatar with the app icon and a brief chat preview.
Wear OS 3 was first announced at Google I/O last year and is expected to land on compatible smartwatches in 2022.
