Google and Samsung to Merge Wear OS and Tizen for Watches

Meanwhile, Google and Samsung are merging two totally different OSes. None of Apple’s smartwatch competitors have made anything even vaguely approaching iconic hardware designs. And Samsung, we’re supposed to believe, is OK with competing manufacturers benefitting from this new Wear OS/Tizen merged platform based at least in part on Samsung’s work.

What a mess.

Daring Fireball: Google and Samsung Claim to Be Merging Wear OS and Tizen Into a Unified OS for Watches

I just want to add that it’s even more of a mess when you remember Google also owns Fitbit. Yet another watch/activity tracker OS to support.
