    Wear OS and the ability to download and use so many 3rd party apps seems better. I can't believe Samsung doesn't use it on their watch. Samsung using Tizen seems terrible. I took it back. For example, Wear OS uses a swype keyboard that's useful. Tizen on the gear watch uses some T9 multi-tap style keyboard crap... it's like using a Motorola flip phone from the 90s! Can someone tell me why Samsung won't use Wear OS on Gear like LG Sport did.

    It's a long read, but does shed a little light (albeit some of it speculative) on the subject.

    PS: You can also download 3rd party keyboards for Tizen watches, I believe.

    Thanks for the link. That does make since with the increased hardware control. As a programmer I still think the UI on the Samsung watches with Tizen seems generic, low budget feel on high budget hardware.

    I feel the complete oppsosite than you. I found wear OS clunky and un-intuitive and feel tizen is more polished. Everything just works great.

    I totally agree. Tizen on my Samsung Gear Sport works much more reliability than Wear OS on my previous Moto 360 watch.

    I'm guessing they took a look at android wear, which was the google standard back then and they figured they can do a better OS. Fast forward to 2019 and Tizen still out-performs WearOS in more ways than not, so why change?
