Moto 360 2nd Gen Up-To-Date on WearOS 1.3?

2019-08-21, 20:45 PM

Hello! I've recently purchased a Moto 320 2nd Gen, and I've heard its using WearOS 2.0. However, when I try to update it, the watch says I'm using the latest version (1.3). How would I be able to get the lastest firmware for the watch?

Just keep clicking Check For Update about once a day.  It should update eventually.  Then when it does update to Wear 3.0 be prepared to factory reset the watch > uninstall Android Wear app from your phone > reboot > reinstall the app > pair watch & phone and start over.  That's pretty common after the 2.0 update.  Then when you get to 2.0 download Wear OS app using the Play Store app on your watch.  Keep updating the Wear OS app and Google Fit app on your watch and eventually you'll be at the latest version of everything and have Tiles.  Good luck.  It's a pain in the....

Is it normal for the watch to be stuck on 5.1.1 (1.3.0)? I don't know if its even possible to get the latest version on this watch since Motorola doesn't manufacture the watches anymore. Bought this watch to upgrade from the first to use the new WearOS, but I might have to return it.

Are you sure it's a 360 2nd Gen and not a 1st Gen?  I have had multiple 360 2nd Gen watches and all updated to Wear 2.0; sometimes it just takes multiple"check for update" attempts.  And my wife and daughter both have 360 2nd Gen watches running Wear 2.0.  But the 1st Gen was not able to run Wear 2.0.

I'm 100% positive it's the 2nd generation watch. I also own the 1st generation watch. Day three of spamming "System Updates," yet the watch still says I'm using the latest version (which is clearly wrong).

Hmmmmmm....I'm not sure what else to recommend.  I've never had a watch stay stuck at 1.3.  It should have at least been at Android Wear 1.5 when you bought it.  Maybe someone else will chime in, but these watch Forums are like a ghost town, almost no one ever posts here anymore.  And I don't think the Moto Agents monitor these watch forum threads anymore.

Surprisingly, I've discovered a fix! I was messing around with the watch and older versions of the Android Wear app. I've installed Android Wear v2.0.0.137106828 via APK, factory reset my watch and setup the watch using that old version of the app. Once the setup was done, I checked for a system update, and it installed NXH19Q (WearOS 2.0). After that, I let apps update and checked for another system update, which there was another. My watch is finally running WearOS 2.26!
