Google may finally have a fix for this annoying Wear OS issue

what you need to know

  • Google appears to be working on a backup solution for Wear OS.
  • This long-awaited feature will allow you to back up your Wear OS data when you pair a smartwatch with a new phone.
  • Presumably, you will be able to restore the smartwatch data via Google One.

One of the glaring shortcomings of Wear OS is the lack of a backup feature if you want to switch to a new smartphone, but Google is apparently working to address this issue.

Lines of code discovered by XDA Developers (opens in a new tab) in the Google Play Services app for Android (beta version 22.32.12) suggest a next option to backup your Wear OS data before restarting and pairing your smartwatch with a new phone. Presumably, the feature will be an optional capability.
