Months late, Android Wear 2.0 is finally rolling out to the 1.63-inch ASUS ZenWatch 2

Last week, ASUS released the Android Wear 2.0 update for its ZenWatch 3, months later than expected. Google originally revealed the OS update in May 2016, before delaying its release until earlier this year, and announcing the start of its rollout in early February

However, ASUS still hadn't released the update for its ZenWatch devices two months later. In May, ASUS said the rollout had begun for the ZenWatch 3, but then said it was mistaken; and later that month, it said the update would arrive "in the coming weeks", before deleting its tweet. Even when it finally released the update for the ZenWatch 3 last week, it did so a day later than it had promised.

Now, at long last, ASUS has made Android Wear 2.0 available for the ZenWatch 2 - but of course, there's a catch. The update is only available for the 1.63-inch model, and there's still no indication of when owners of the smaller ZenWatch 2 will get it.

Meanwhile, Google has acknowledged an issue with recurring reminders on Android Wear 2.0, and said that it will be fixed in a future update. One can't help but wonder how long ASUS ZenWatch 2 owners will be waiting for that one to arrive.
