When Google finally released Android Wear 2.0 earlier this year, the plan was to eventually roll it out to several existing smartwatches that had been on the market at the time. This was welcome news for smartwatch owners who were concerned their investment may be obsolete without the update. Unfortunately, the delay-riddled release of Android Wear 2.0 is late again thanks to a bug that was discovered even as Google had started the update process.
In a statement from Google, the company says:
“We have started rolling out the Android Wear 2.0 update to Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 and Tag Heuer Connected. For other devices, the update is currently being delayed due to a bug found in final testing. We will push the update to the remaining devices as soon as the issue is resolved.”
The update that started to rollout commenced on March 29th, much later than the original planned date of February 15th. Google indicates the bug should be squashed and a cleaned up update will be ready to resume rolling out by April 4th at the latest. That is just for the devices already getting the update though. Other smartwatches like the ASUS ZenWatch, Motorola Moto 360, Nixon Mission and Polar M600 will see the update at a later, as yet to be determined time.
