In the case of wearable devices and its applications, the new name is suitable. Google has replaced the usual watch-like logo of Android Wear OS with a distinctive "W". According to a notification received by a Reddit user (via Android Police) and additional commentary from 9to5Google, the Mountain View company might be prepping a refresh of the OS with a new name and new logo. Although smartwatches saw a period of growth a year ago, it doesn't look like many device makers are that eager to create new Android Wear smartwatches. There's that confusion that Android Wear devices are specific to Android, yet this isn't true. Having said that, the company may want chuck-off the Android tag on a product that isn't strictly bound to Android devices. The user didn't mention in the post which Android Wear-powered smartwatch was being set up. In the case of Android Wear, you'll be notified that there's a watch nearby that can be paired with your phone. Google is promoting the Android Wear devices in the same way they have promoted Google Pay. The current market share of Android Wear could be one of the prime reasons behind the overhaul.
MobileSyrup has reached out to Google for comment on the potential rebranding, but it's likely there won't be any news on the matter until Google I/O 2018, if not a later date. As it seems, Google is ready to rename Android Wear to simply "Wear OS".
