Tick Tock Ya Don’t Stop – Examining Google’s Wear OS

Google created the descendent of their wearables operating system, Wear OS, back in 2014, a full year before the arrival of the Apple Watch and watchOS. Since that time, several OEMs such as Fossil, Motorola, and Mobvoi have released multiple smart watches that run Wear OS, and Google has acquired FitBit, which could mean a push towards a Google-made smart watch similar with what it did with the Google Nexus and Pixel lines of phones. With that in mind, this presentation takes a look at what artifacts are available in Wear OS, including hardware information, recently launched applications, used watch faces and complications, location data, paired phone information, account information, and Google Assistant data. These artifacts will also be compared to what is available on the paired Android phone.
