Just days after a Fast Company report claimed that Samsung's association with Google's Android Wear platform is over, the South Korean tech giant has issued a formal statement refuting the claim.
"We disagree with Fast Company's interpretation," the company said. "Samsung has not made any announcement concerning Android Wear and we have not changed our commitment to any of our platforms."
While the statement does clear the air (for the time being at-least) on the issue, any reports/rumors of Samsung's break-up with the wearable platform cannot be just dismiss as hot air given that the company's last Android Wear-powered device was the Gear Live smartwatch which was launched a couple of years ago. Since then, Samsung has been squarely focusing on it's home grown Tizen OS when it comes to wearables.
@yourself al salmisungi I agree with you, its good to have two options , tizen and andoid from samsung.
Samsung burnt its fingers with Bada os, now it has tizen on one of its ph -another burnt finger soon...sorry two fingers -the other for tizen wearable!!
This is the best news i ever crossed by about the smartwatchs world
