Android Wear 2.0 update hits six more smartwatches: Rolling out now

Polar M600, Nixon Mission, Fossil Q Wander & Marshal, and Michael Kors incoming
Android Wear 2.0 update now landing

It's safe to say that the Android Wear 2.o update on existing watches program has been somewhat of a hit-and-miss affair... with a lot more miss than hit. Originally scheduled to arrive in the days following the launch of the LG Watch Sport and Style, we're only just starting to see it arrive now.

Google admitted to us that a bug in testing caused the delay but the good news is that we're now seeing the light at the end of the delay tunnel. Last week we told you how the rollout had begun for three watches - the Tag Heuer Connected and the Casio Smart Outdoor. These three devices should all receive the update by 4 April.

And we've now got word from Google that a further batch of six models - the Polar M600, Nixon's The Mission, the Fossil Q Wander and Q Marshal, and the Michael Kors Access duo - are now all-set to receive the update.


Keep your eye out for a notification yourself although, on a couple of watches we've tested it on we've managed to force through the update using the settings menu (as with the Q Founder pictured up top).

The download took over an hour, so make sure you've got plenty of spare time. Once it is done, you'll have the option to copy over your Google accounts so that you can use Android Pay, and you'll be treated to an Android Wear 2.0 tutorial.

    I've got the Huawei and still nothing.  Getting pretty frustrated after waiting almost a year since Google I/O '16.

    maybe the update was delayed because it is required for large manufacturers like LG and Huawei to sell new watches that have Android 2.0

    I downloaded and installed update 2.0. It was my understanding that I'd finally be able to reply to texts. I own an iPhone 7 Plus, though. Am I mistaken? I haven't been able to do so. Everything else about the update has been great, compared to the previous version.

      I was under that impression as well so I picked up the LG Sport (AT&T) couldn't even get my contacts to sync with AT&T Numbersync even though the LG had it's own number tied to my AT&T account. Not sure if what or if you are using AT&T but yes, you can receive text messages no you can't respond to text through the phone. I took the LG Sport and went with the Samsung Gear S3 (frontier), all my contacts from my phone is synced to my watch. Like the LG I can see text messages that goes to my phone but cannot respond, for me not being able to respond wasn't a big deal but having the contacts on my watch and not having to use my phone was more important. I love the Samsung Gear S3 the only downside is the limited app availability and compatibility of fitness tracking apps like myfitness pal, S Health does a pretty good job about the tracking but it would be cool to be able to integrate with an app that you track what you eat etc etc.

    Don't update the Fossil Q - its now not connecting to my iPhone (never an issue in the past) and the battery life is nearly non existent.

    Had 47% this morning and not even 4 hours later i'm down to less than 20%... all while it hasn't even been connected to the phone.

    If they keep this up i may have to bite the bullet and buy an apple watch
