Google puts brakes on Android Wear 2.0 rollout for most smartwatches due to last-minute bug

Android Wear 2.0 was launched last month and was expected to rollout to a number of devices soon after. However, it seems that Google has discovered a bug in its internal testing, due to which the rollout of the update has been delayed for many devices.

Just a couple of weeks ago, the Android Wear 2.0 update for testers began rolling out to the Huawei Watch and the LG Watch Style is preloaded with the update already. However, the newly discovered bug will delay the rollout of the update for many other smartwatches.

According to a statement from Google received by 9to5Google, the Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10, and Tag Heuer Connected will continue to receive the update, while other devices will have to wait till the company fixes the bug.

The complete list of devices set to receive the update is as follows:

  • ASUS ZenWatch 2
  • ASUS ZenWatch 3
  • Casio Smart Outdoor Watch
  • Casio PRO TREK Smart
  • Fossil Q Founder
  • Fossil Q Marshal
  • Fossil Q Wander
  • Huawei Watch (all variants)
  • LG G Watch R
  • LG Watch Urbane
  • LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE
  • Michael Kors Access Smartwatches
  • Moto 360 2nd Gen
  • Moto 360 2nd Gen (Women’s Editions)
  • Moto 360 Sport
  • New Balance RunIQ
  • Nixon Mission
  • Polar M600
  • TAG Heuer Connected

Currently, there is no ETA on the bug fix from Google so it is difficult to predict when the rollout will resume.
