Wear OS is still far from being the best platform for smartwatches. Industry experts point out that the operating system needs to improve its battery optimization in order to stay in the game. Right now, Apple is clearly ahead of the game, followed by Samsung and other manufacturers. However, it does not mean the end of Google’s wearable ecosystem. Some fashion companies still rely on it for their products and the Diesel On Axial is one of the latest smartwatches that use it.

Labels such as Fossil, Michael Kors, Emporio Armani, Guess, and others still use it. Even upscale watchmakers like TAG Heuer and Montblanc use Wear OS as the backbone of their smartwatches. It’s safe to say that it’s not going away anytime soon.

As such, the Diesel On Axial is still worth your money if you are in the market for a stylish smart wearable. We love chunky watches and some of you do as well. Diesel’s previous offerings all came with thick bezels, but the On Axial is the thickest so far.

The On Axial It sports a 1.28 OLED screen within a 44 mm aluminum case. Additionally, gone are the round buttons save for the crown as Diesel replaces these with rectangular textured pushers.┬áThese details give the smartwatch an industrial look that owners will either love or hate. It’s packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset with 1 GB of RAM. We have no word about battery life, but we can speculate that it would be better than the previous models.
