Google today made a fresh beta build available of Android Wear. This pre-release operating system is compatible with a single device, the LG Watch Sport. Google says the beta targets several behaviors and refinements within API level 26, specifically notification channels and background limits. For example, this new Android beta makes it possible for users to choose the types of notifications they receive on their wearable, as well as separate those generated by watch apps and those generated by phone apps. Moreover, the Android beta improves upon background limits to restrict apps running in the background. The end result should be better battery life. Google stopped short of giving the beta a number designation, though because it is an upgrade of API level 26 it is like Android Wear 2.x.
