Wear OS H update brings in Battery Saver changes, Smart App Resume and more

Contrary to the initial tardy approach Google has started showing much of an alacrity in updating the Wear OS of late. After rebranding it from “Android Wear” early this year Google has, in fact, pushed several updates to the Wear OS. As a result, the platform now looks cleaner and nicer at the same time it is easier to navigate or check notifications.

Better still, the search giant is further ensuring lot many changes to Wear OS through yet another Wear 2.2 update, oddly called “H” update. The latest update will bump the smartwatches and the wearable to Android Pie.

The “H” update includes four major changes primarily targeted at improving power efficiency. The “Battery Saver Mode” will boost the battery life by turning on the Battery Saver and displaying only the time when the battery falls below 10 percent. At the same time, the “Improved off Body Efficiency” will induce a deep sleep mode after detecting a 30-minute inactivity in order to save energy.

Further, the “Smart App Resume” feature intriguingly allows the apps to retain their status the way users leave them after the use. So, a user can now pick up from where they had let off their apps, saving much of a time and hassle. With “Two Step Power Off” feature turning off the watch has now become easier. A user now has to simply hold the power button until the power menu pops up. Then, he or she will just need to tap on the power off or the restart option.

The “H” update will progressively start hitting the devices over the next few months. Depending upon the compatibility of your device some functionality might vary though.
