Now Google is working on a solution to avoid the loss of smartwatch data by allowing it to be backed up when the user changes smartphone, in order to make the process less laborious.
New strings XDA spotted in the Google Play Services v22.32.12 beta APK code reveal that Google may soon offer users the ability to back up smartwatch data when they switch to a new smartphone to make migration less hassle.
The Google Play Services v22.32.12 beta code suggests that future data backup functionality will need to be somehow configured through various options.
The ability to back up your Wear OS smartwatch data is welcome, however it may take some time before it is widely released, as it currently appears to be still in the early stages of development.
During the Galaxy Unpacked event recently held by Samsung, the Mountain View giant announced that in the future, Google Maps will no longer need a smartphone for navigation on Wear OS.
