Huawei Watch smartwatch gets Android Wear 2.0 firmware

This long-awaited update has finally started its rollout. The first reports about it surfaced on Reddit, and there is no official info about it yet. This update was expected to arrive at the end of March.

Huawei Watch users have been expecting Android Wear 2.0 for quite a long time now, especially since the update was scheduled to arrive in late March. Back then, it even started to roll out, but Huawei stopped it to fix some bugs discovered in the last minute. Now, Android Wear 2.0 is finally rolling out to all Huawei Watch units in the wild.

Huawei Watch users on Reddit posted pictures of the new firmware, showing their devices running Android Wear 2.0.0.141602697 with Google Play services version 10.1.33 (534-138250150). The update arrives over-the-air to Huawei Watch users that use the developer preview software, while those still with Android Wear 1.5 can force the update by repeatedly tapping the green check mark on the update screen. According to some users, it may take up to a minute or more to initiate the process.

At last, there is also the straightforward solution that requires a manual download of the OTA file. Once that is done, the user can simply flash the smartwatch - but the process requires basic flashing software knowledge.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
