It's involved many moons of waiting, but Moto 360 Sport owners are finally set to receive the Android Wear 2.0 update.

Despite the Lenovo-owned company rolling out the new software to the standard Moto 360 device back in May, a new support page with details of the smartwatch update indicates that it will also begin rolling out to Sport devices in phases over the next few days.

No concrete reason for the delay has been noted by Lenovo or Moto but given the fact the device had a fairly shaky life - being pulled from the Google Store just several months after launch and receiving significant price cuts from others - the lack of attention given to it perhaps isn't surprising.

Still, for those who did invest in the Moto 360 Sport, their patience is finally being rewarded. It means that features such as standalone apps, watch complications and improved notifications are, at last, all in the mix.

In terms of the bigger picture for Android Wear, almost all of the rollouts for devices have now been completed. It's been an inevitably long process since the first devices appeared back in February, since companies all work on different time scales, but those with older generations should mostly be reaping the benefits now.

Still, that list of devices hosting the upgrade doesn't include the original Moto 360, Sony Smartwatch 3, Samsung Gear Live or LG G Watch.
