Android Wear 2.0 update halted and delayed
Sometimes it pays to be an early adopter.
Smartwatch wearers hoping their device would soon be updated to Android Wear 2.0 will have to wait a bit longer. While some devices shipped with the updated OS (including LG’s new Watch Sport and Watch Style), the wider rollout of Android Wear 2.0 has been halted. Google states that the update is “currently being delayed due to a bug found in final testing.” The company promises to “push the update to the remaining devices as soon as the issue is resolved.”
Some smartwatches will still be updated, including the Fossil Q Founder, Casio WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch, and the Tag Heuer Connected. There currently isn’t an expected timetable on when rollouts will resume, so if you’re waiting on updating your Android Wear smartwatch, you may be waiting on Google for a while.
