A serious Wear OS running watch could be coming soon

As a very crude rule of thumb, when buying a wearable, you have to prioritise serious fitness tracking (think Garmin, Coros, Fitbit, etc.) or smartwatch features (Samsung, Google, Mobvoi, etc.). Yes, there’s a bit of overlap between the best smartwatches and best running watches, but running watches lack the smarts and looks of smartwatches, while smartwatches generally lack the accuracy and/or detail to appeal to serious runners.

Polar, a serious player in the running watch world, may be looking to bridge that gap with a future wearable running Wear OS. In an interview with Wareable, Polar CEO Sander Werring told the site that the company was open to giving Google’s smartwatch operating system a go.
