    Yeah, and no update for the Huawei Watch neither :( But that was already expected.

    Yeah. The updated apk is on apk mirror. Like someone said, it looks a little different, but it's basically just the name change at this point.

    The new tagline: "Make every minute count."

    Is it better than previous, what was it..."Be together but not the same", or something like that?

    I agree that the new tag is better for AW. Wasn't that be together campaign about Android in general though? I know they pushed it with the watches, but I thought it was a dig at the Apple ecosystem in general vs the options that Android provides in devices.

    It might have been, now that I think about it more. I do like the new tagline though.

    Yeah. Idk that branding is the issue with AW, but I like it.

    Now that I stop & think about it, idk that I like the Wear OS name. Feels too Apple-y to me.

    I think that was the point, to be more Apple / iOS like.

    (Edit: that was a horrible auto-correct )

    not sure if that is the case. most operating systems are named that way whether it be for other watches os, computers or whatever. when it was called android wear, it sounded more like a device not an operating system.

    Google has made it pretty clear the rename is to make it clear for iPhone users that the Android watch OS is compatible with iPhones.

    I think they just used it as an example because the other operating systems have been doing it too.
