Samsung Gear S2 hands-on

Samsung has used Tizen for most of its smartwatches, but the company did release an Android Wear watch back in 2014. Now Samsung may be giving the smartwatch flavor of Android another try.

Some Samsung employees are wearing Gear smartwatches with Wear OS, not Tizen, according to Evan Blass. No other details of these watches were given.

We've seen several Tizen-based Gear smartwatches from Samsung, so it'd be kind of strange to see the company change things up and release a Wear OS smartwatch. It would be nice to see another Wear OS model come to market, though, especially considering the attractive designs of Samsung's more recent Gear smartwatches.
