Android Wear 2.0 Arriving To More Smartwatches By End Of April/May

Google Clarifies Which Smartwatches Will Get Android Wear 2.0

Android Wear 2.0: A Googler took to an official Google support forum to shed some light on the holdup of Android Wear 2.0. That's a lot to get excited about if you own an Android smartwatch so it's good to know the wait is nearly over for most. In order to define some sort of communication protocol between the two actors, Complications API specifies a set of Complications Types which can be used by a provider when exposing data. For a long time only devices that shipped with Android Wear 2.0 existed, then a couple no-name devices got the update and we found out the delay was due to a bug.

Among the older watches that won't be getting an update, Google lists the original LG G Watch, the Samsung Gear Live, the Sony Smartwatch 3, the original Moto 360, and the original ASUS ZenWatch. Some of the models due to receive the update include the Huawei Watch, Moto 360 2nd Gen, ASUS ZenWatch 2, RunIQ, LG smartwatches, and more.

The rollout of Google's Android Wear 2.0 update has been testing smartwatch owners' patience ever since the software was first announced way back in 2016.

Pixel, Pixel XL: Android 7.1.2 already rolled out last week, but that stable build is finally coming to the phones enrolled in the Android beta program.

The Android Wear 2.0 update will be arriving by the end of April, while other watches might receive the update sometime in late May, according to Android Wear support community manager Ernest.
