Android and iOS are the best mobile operating systems, but the situation on the smartwatch market is slightly different. While Google and Apple platforms are also present, there are others, equally good solutions for smartwatches, including Samsung’s Tizen OS.
The Finnish startup Jolla is interested in joining the market with its own Sailfish operating system. A few developers have decided to port the mobile OS and include some changes to it so it could be suitable for smartwatches. The most of the inspiration comes from an existing smartwatch operating system called Asteroid OS, led by Florent Revest.
The system is currently just a “case study,” but we should see some consumer-ready smartwatch running the software in near future.
