Moto 360 (2nd Gen), Huawei Watch and Others to Receive Android Wear 2.0 by End of April, Late May

If you own an Android Wear smartwatch that didn’t already come with Android Wear 2.0, you’re probably wondering when you can expect the update. I don’t blame you. Considering most people thought it would have rolled out long ago, Google is making the rounds, providing a new timeframe for the rollout. 

As listed on the Google Product forums, the Moto 360 (2nd Gen) and Huawei Watch will receive the update by the end of this month or late May. Same goes for the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE (still the worst name ever), Moto 360 Sport, ZenWatch 2, ZenWatch 3, and Huawei Watch “Ladies.”

“End of April/ late May,” as written by Google, certainly isn’t the best timeframe we’ve ever seen, but it’s better than nothing at this point. Owners just want their devices updated, so a few more weeks may not be the end of the world.

Watches that will receive Android Wear 2.0 end of April/late May

  • Moto 360 Gen 2
  • Moto 360 Sport
  • LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE
  • Huawei Watch
  • Huawei Watch Ladies

Watches not Android Wear 2.0 compatible

    So the Moto 360 v2 also includes the women’s version, correct?

  • Kenny Jole

    Just hurry up

  • NexusMan

    It should have been phrased as “Late April through late May.”

  • Morry Zelcovitch

    Too little too late, gear s3 blows AW out of the water

    • NexusMan

      Does it work with all flagship Android and iOS devices?

      • Morry Zelcovitch

        Works amazing on my s7e, works really well on android and ok on ios

  • shamatuu

    thats why i dont get a smartwatch

    • NexusMan

      That’s not a reason to not get a smartwatch… maybe a reason to not have gotten THOSE smartwatches.

  • Chris

    -Beta users get final Android 7.1.2 later than everyone else
    -Watches that had developer preview available get Android Wear 2.0 months after watches that came with it

    At times I wonder how Google is successful at anything.

    Maybe I should smoke a joint it’ll help time fly by quicker, or at least be more entertaining 😂

    Shout out to Android Alo, messenger, hangouts, voice, etc… fiasco.

  • Jordan Wires

    What about the urbane v1?

    • p0k3y

      Already got it a couple of weeks ago!

    • Brandon Sobotta

      Love the update on my urbane. Battery life is worse though.

    You should poll if anyone still cares – I loved Android Wear/Tizen – but now its just stale to me. I don’t wear my watches anymore.

      I love my huawei watch, I put it on first thing out of bed and last thing I take off. I find it extremely useful. I always wore a watch so it only makes sense to wear one that I can answer calls text and take notes search Internet, control my home entertainment and so much more.

        Yep I feel exactly the same. Much more discrete at work to have my watch buzz gently on my wrist for notifications than my phone to buzz loudly against the desk it sits on all day. Can walk around the house or office while my phone is on the charger and not miss notifications. Easy to read the odd thing in the train/subway while commuting. I’ve found it quite valuable to my everyday life.

    What a clown show- I thought all the pending issues have were addressed weeks ago…

    • LewisSD

      My guess is they are all holding out on updates to sell their new watches. I have lost faith in android wear with this 2.0 update process. The reason all wear watches were running stock wear OS was that they would all update around the same time. I’ll wear my huawei watch until it dies and go get a real traditional watch after.

      • Nw_adventure

        I’m liking the Zenwatch 3- Options over my OG 360 are nice especially the speaker but the whole 2.0 announcement and roll-out plan seems like an afterthought. Do they only have like 3 folks working on AW currently ? LOL

        • interstellarmind

          lack of nfc and gps killed the zenwatch 3 for me

          • Nw_adventure

            I can see why some folks want NFC/GPS- For me android pay was neat for a week, dont really need GPS or a watch that’s as thick as the current options available with those features +cost.

    End of April, or Late May?…. but early may… heck no?

    • Sorry, it’s one or the other!

      Managing director of Google!, is explaining to users to start off “Work at home” method, that People have been doing for about one year now. These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started
