All major tech companies have started designing smartwatches but not all of them have been successful. The two companies that created the bestselling wearable gadgets are Apple and Google. The biggest difference between their wearable gadgets is that they use different operating systems. Regarding operating systems, Google just launched its latest Android Wear 2.0 update.
