Google Takes On Apple Watch

Google has launched its latest effort to take on Apple’s Watch with a new version of its OS, Android Wear 2.0

The new OS offers a number of improvements, including standalone apps that can run without the need to have a paired smartphone.

According to Google, standalone apps will let buyers use apps like Spotify on their smartwatch free of a phone. However, the watch still needs to connect to the Internet. Google has also made some significant interface updates for Android Wear 2.0 to make things like notifications easier to read.
