You're off by a few as it's actually about 18% but still a valid point. Google does not have 100% control of the OS and all hardware running it, unlike Apple. In fact if Apple were to license iOS they'd likely suffer similar "fragmentation" . Apple is smart not to do so IMO.https://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html
A few of the licensees are arriving at the conclusion that leaving Android relatively unaltered is the way to go, among them Sony, Motorola, and now ZTE. It looks like the trend is back to more a stock Android look. After going to extremes to look like something other than Android I guess gravitating to a more comfortable and logical middle-ground shouldn't be a...
LOL. You are absolutely one of the wittiest posters here., and can be one of the most enjoyable.
I view Apple a whole lot more favorably than Samsung, a company that's never had any qualms about shamelessly mimicking and even copying other techs successes. So viewing Apple favorably and disliking the way Samsung conducts business makes me your friend then. Cool.
Apparently you desperately want me to be a Samsung fan so as to have a windmill to flail at?

Manufacturers can offer different features and capabilities. Google hasn't said they shouldn't AFAIK. What they don't want is any change to the UX. If a person buys one Android Wear device then adds or changes to another Google wants the same familiar interface used. Makes complete sense from a consumer standpoint doesn't it, yet still allows Samsung or LG or Moto to create their own unique wearable.

You must have skipped right over post 7 preceding yours.I've never trusted Samsung, nor thought Apple fans were wrong to distrust them either.
The OS for Android wear and the one for smart[phones/tablets is somewhat different.
