While disabling "OK, Google" detection on Android Wear devices was a workaround that severely limited their capabilities, a new software update finally takes care of the annoying lag issue that has been around for about a month.

When upgrading to a new Android Wear version, the logical consequence would be a faster, more reliable software platform, that also comes with a few new features. Sadly, these updates sometimes happen to come with one or more bugs that managed to slip through. Android Wear 2.0, for example, also included a rather annoying lag issue.

"Simply be sure the Google app on your watch is updated to v7.19.18.25arm, turn OK Google Detection off then on, and reboot your watch—everything should be fast and stay fast, and saying "OK Google" should bring up your Assistant once again," says the Reddit post about this real solution to the annoying lag problem in Android Wear 2.0.

The Android Wear 2.0 lag problem has been around for about a month, and it was closely related to the detection of the "OK, Google" hot word. Those who were affected by this issue had only one temporary fix at their disposal, and the problem with this workaround was that it severely limited the capabilities of their smart wearables. Sadly, they had to disable "OK, Google" detection to get rid of the lag problem.
