The most recent Samsung wearable devices have been powered by Samsung’s own Tizen OS and recent rumors have suggested that Samsung may be dropping Google’s Android Wear OS.
The news came in a report from Fast Company who had said that Samsung were considering dropping the OS, Samsung has now denied the rumors.
Engadget received an official statement from Samsung about their commitment to the platform which you can see below.
“We disagree with Fast Company’s interpretation. Samsung has not made any announcement concerning Android Wear and we have not changed our commitment to any of our platforms.”
Samsung is expected to launch their new Gear Fit 2 smartwatch soon, this device is expected to come with their own Tizen OS rather than Android Wear.
