Android Wear to gain Android Oreo-like notifications dots soon | AndroidGuys. I love my gold Android Wear watch from LG, the Watch Urbane Luxe. However, Android Wear is not my favorite watch OS. I prefer my Gear S3 LTE from Samsung for two reasons. One, it has an LTE phone chip, and I can get my phone calls and messages without being connected to my Smartphone. But, the interface and OS on the Gear S3 is superior to Android Wear. As an example, in Android Wear, you don't always see the text, email and other notifications on screen. On the Gear S3, a little dot appears on the left when there are notifications. The Android Wear watches are just now getting this handy little function. But, I still go back and forth between the watches; hey, it's my job to test gadgets. Somebody's got to do it.
