Following a number of false starts, Android Wear 2.0 update is finally rolling out, albeit only to selected smartwatches. Google announced that it fixed the bug that prevented the mass launching of the update a few days ago. As a result, the operating system is now available to 9 smartwatches.
According to Ars Technica, the Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10, and Tag Heuer Connected smartwatches will be the first smartwatches to receive the Android Wear 2.0 update. While not all Android Wear watch will be included in the update, the aforementioned three devices are getting its update by April 4.
It is interesting to note that the Huawei Watch is excluded from this update even if these two devices are already running on a beta model of the Android Wear 2.0 since mid-2016. Now, though, six more smartwatches will receive the Android Wear 2.0 update which brings the total number of smartwatches to 9. The new additions include the Polar M600, Fossil Q Wander, Fossil Q Marshal, Nixon Mission, Michael Cors Access Dylan, and Michael Cors Access Bradshaw.
Wareable reports that Asus' ZenWatch 2 and ZenWatch 3 will receive their Android Wear 2.0 update in the second quarter of 2017. Casio's Pro Trek WSD-F20, while still not available on the market until sometime in April, is supposedly going to be introduced with the Android Wear 2.0 already in tow.
The original LG Wear Smartwatch and the Sony Smartwatch 3 are not going to receive the Android Wear 2.0 update. However, LG Watch Urbane, LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, and LG G Watch R are a sure lock to receive the new operating system update and the only question remaining is when. The Moto 360 2nd Generation and the Moto 360 Sport are in the same boat as that of the LG flagship with regards to when they will get the update.
