Interestingly, Google is also testing a new rounded address bar which will be placed on the bottom of the screen. Apparently, the name change has been reported in version 12.4 of the app, which is part of the new Android P Developer Preview.
The new information was posted on Reddit, with user H3x0n noting that the rebranded software appeared when setting up a new Android Wear smartwatch. As noted by Android Headlines, there were more references to Wear OS in the beta APK, including referring to it as the "wearable service name", suggesting that a name change is incoming.
As of now, there's no formal explanation for the makeover at this point, but it is becoming a bit of a trend for Google with its Android products. There might be a reason to step away from the Android name. Lots of bug fixes and performance improvements have been implemented as well, along with support for iOS devices pairing.
Android Wear is now mainly used in smartwatches made by Asus (ZenWatch 2 and 3), Fossil (Q Founder, Marshal, Wander), Huawei (Watch), Lenovo (Moto 360 Gen 2, Sport), LG (Watch Urbane, G Watch R) and Tag Heuer (Connected). That "W" stands for "Wear OS"-not to be confused with watchOS, the operating system the Apple Watch uses".
