Motorola revealed on Twitter that Moto 360 owners will have to wait a bit more to get the latest Android Wear update due to performance issues they are currently working to iron out.

Android Wear 5.1.1 is a major update for the smart watches that rely on Google's operating system for wearables, but it looks like the Motorola Moto 360 is not ready for it. While the Sony SmartWatch already got its new firmware, Motorola and Google are still working to make sure everything works properly.

Twitter user David Stevens asked for news about the 5.1.1 update for Moto 360, highlighting that it is "kinda disappointing" to see that owners of Sony smartwatches already got theirs. Motorola Mobility's answer arrived quickly, but only saying "Performance is not quite there yet. We’re working with Google to ensure the software works great on #Moto360."

Unfortunately, Motorola did not reveal any details concerning the issues encountered or at least the estimated time of release of the Android Wear 5.1.1 update for Moto 360. We will report back as soon as we find out more about this, so stay tuned.

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.
