Oct Wear OS update

Anyone get the new Wear OS update on thier gen 2 watches yet and if so how does it run on this device?  Looks like google has us on thier list of watches to get it but I havent actually seen any reports yet of moto 360 users recieveing it yet.

Re: Oct Wear OS update

We have four Moto 350 Gen 2 watches in our family (different models) and no one has received the new Wear OS yet.  My husband follows this forum and several others and said he hasn't seen a report of anyone actually receiving this update other than tech reporters.  This one seems to be going out slower than previous updates.

Nothing yet on any of our 4 watches.  This seems to be a slow rollout.  I read somewhwere (some other forum...maybe Reditt) that the Moto 360 Gen 2 watches will be updated "later".  Whatever that means.  The article also stated that Google is slowly "flipping the switch" server side on the models of wathces available to download this new update.  I even tried the "Uninstall Wear OS app from watch" trick that has been widely published on-line and that did not force any new updates.  It did make me go through the Wear OS tutorial all over again.  Smiley Indifferent

Re: Oct Wear OS update

Is it Google or Motorola that decides when the watch is updated?

I think it's all Google these days.  Especially since Moto went out of the smart watch business in December '16.  I think for this Wear OS 2.0 update it's all controlled by Google.  I think.

I think you are right - it is up to Google.  I think the Moto 360 2nd Gen is last on the list.  The original Huawei Watch just got the update (same chipset as the moto 360 2nd gen and same year released).

I also saw on another Forum that the original Huawei watch received it a few days ago.  Hopefully it will start rolling out to us soon.

Yup we are the last ones left from google list of devices that will get the update.  Hopefully any day now...
