Do you have an Android smartphone and are planning to get a new smartwatch, powered by Wear OS so here is an update for you, Google has officially announced that Wear OS smartwatches will support Fast Pair on Android smartphones.
And with Fast Pair support coming to Wear OS, users will now be able to pair their Wear OS smartwatches with Android smartphones and tablets with just a click of a button.
Here’s how Fast Pair works on Wear OS devices and how it makes your life easier, especially while pairing a new smartwatch with an Android device.
Since quick paired devices are also stored on Google devices, users will also be able to pair their Wear OS devices to a new Android smartphone using Bluetooth with just one tap. Likewise, it also allows users to have a seamless pairing experience every time they want to add a new Wear OS device.
Devices that support Google Fast Pair
As of now, it’s not clear if the Google Fast Pair feature is only available for WearOS 3 smartwatches, or if the feature will also be available for older smartwatches running Wear OS and Wear OS 2.
Fast Pair is only available on Android devices running Android 10 or later.
Another useful feature of Fast Fair is that it allows users to switch between different wireless accessories such as wireless earbuds and smart watches, and also allows users to switch between these devices seamlessly.
Does quick pairing come with your smartwatch?
If you have a new smartwatch running on WearOS 3, the Fast Pair processor will also be available on your smartwatch. Make sure to download the latest firmware to get Fast Fair support on your Wear OS 3 smartwatch.
Note that Google Fast Pair only works on Android devices, and if you have an iPhone, you won’t be able to use the same even if you have a smartwatch running the latest version of Wear OS 3.
