This Android Wear update comes with minor fixes and improvements, but also packs a few enhancements to the Moto Body fitness app.

Motorola has just begun to roll out a new Android Wear build to the second generation Moto 360 and the Moto 360 Sport. Carrying the build number MWD49B, this is a minor update that comes with multiple improvements to the Moto Body app, in addition to the usual security patches and various tweaks.

According to the official change log by Motorola, the Android Wear build MWD49B for the Moto 360 and the Moto 360 Sport smartwatches has the following highlights:

  • Moto Body enhanced calorie calculation - now taking heart rate into account
  • Moto Body heart rate continuous measure - no longer needed to tap to re-scan while in the app
  • security updates - Google's Android security updates until May 1st
  • stability improvements - no details mentioned

Unfortunately, it looks like the first generation Moto 360 no longer receives any official updates. The MWD49B firmware update rolls out gradually, but those who did not get the notification and are in a hurry can always go to Settings and check for it manually.

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.
