Android Wear 2.0 is coming soon. Early February 2017 is the slated release for the wearable smartwatch. And a lot of people will be watching. The Apple Watch was a complete and total fiasco. Riddled with bugs, the Apple Watch proved to be one of the company’s biggest failures in history. Android Wear 2.0 is intended to wipe away all memories of any disastrous smartwatch memories. In the place of those awful memories will be a newer, better wearable operating system.
There is one thing Apple has going for it with the release of this new product. People love to purchase gadgets. Even when the gadget gets weak reviews, there are still going to be millions of people interested in buying up the product. Anything with the Apple or Android brand is going to draw attention. Granted, the Apple Watch eventually died because sales could not be sustained. The smartwatch also could not expand beyond the base of gadget loyalists.
Android 2.0 hopes to sustain sales by improving on the poor marks the Apple Watch received. Improvements on an intriguing technological device could do a lot to bring back all those old customers the company lost with the Apple Watch. Hopefully, a large block of customers weren’t turned off so much they won’t give a wearable OS product the cold shoulder once it hits stores.
As long as the new Android 2.0 product delivers something consumers really want, then the product is going to be a success. This is, of course, provided the quality is there. Many wanted the unique benefits of owning a smartwatch, but a smartwatch that fails to work is not exactly something that delivers many benefits.
Apple has surely learned from previous folly. The new release is sure to be something interesting. Apple is hoping customers are willing to give it a try.
