So far for all watches with wear bone they must come as standard with Google AssistantBut that should change with the new unified platform from Google and Samsung.
With Wear OS 3 it seems that the user and / or the manufacturer will have the freedom to install alternative assistants
Alternative Wear OS assistants
References to a called package name “com.google.android.wearable.alternate_assistant”, which would mean that Wear OS 3 reportedly supports alternative wizards.
It looks like Google will fully open Wear OS to allow manufacturers to implement other voice assistants, and possibly allow users to select their preferred voice assistant on their watch. For example, Samsung can add Bixby to its new Galaxy Watch 4, as it was leaked a few days ago, or users can add Alexa to their watches.
To remove doubts, we will have to wait for the presentation of Wear OS 3, which is expected to launch in the rest of the year with the next Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, whose watches will be the first to launch Google’s new portable operating system.
