It appears as though the same update which hit the G Watch from LG today is now rolling out to owners of the Moto 360. Inside the update, which is numbered 4.4W.2, users should expect to see support for offline music playback, GPS support (for compatible devices), and bug fixes. 

Motorola has posted a full changelog through its blog, which we have placed right below. Included are a few cool features, such as an auto turn off of Ambient Mode, Mood Lighting, tweaks for the user interface, and much more.

  • Smart Battery Saving – When your battery hits 15%, your Moto 360 will turn off ambient mode, so you don’t have to remember to.
  • Timely Time Checks – Moto 360 will synchronize the time with your phone more often to make sure it is up to the minute.
  • User Interface Tweaks – We observed with consumers that there are many times where you want to use your Moto 360 as truly a classic watch—a beautiful way to see the time. A new gesture now lets you see the full watch face without permanently dismissing a notification. Just touch the top of a notification and swipe down. You’ll see the notification again when you have another high priority notification.
  • Mood Lighting – Moto 360 will adjust to the lighting of the room while charging, so that it isn’t too bright or too dark.
  • Readying the wires for Bluetooth – There are a couple of under-the-hood enhancements that will pave the way for connecting Bluetooth headsets to the watch.
  • Bug Squashing – As usual, bugs are squashed to enhance the overall user experience.

If you own a Moto 360 smartwatch, be on the lookout tonight.
