Wear OS 3 requires a very new chip, such as the Snapdragon Wear 4100. This means almost every existing smartwatch, including every Wear 3100 device, will not be updated.

With all of that in mind, here are the few smartwatches that will be upgradeable to Wear OS 3.0, including watches already available and some soon to be released.

Alongside their own watches, Fossil's sub-brands like Michael Kors will also release Gen 6 watches in the coming months. All of these watches will also get a Wear OS 3 upgrade in 2022.

As more watchmakers release watches built on more modern chips, we'll surely see more watches offer an upgrade to Wear OS 3. Follow 9to5Google for the latest Android and Wear OS news.
