Original Huawei Watch will get Android Wear 2.0... but when?

April or May for the 2.0 upgrade - the same timescale for the 2nd-gen Moto 360
Huawei Watch getting Android Wear 2.0 soon

While the Huawei Watch 2 is official and on sale, it doesn't mean the Chinese company is totally abandoning the original Huawei Watch. The Android Wear 2.0 update is coming - although it's still not exactly clear when.

Huawei had originally planned on getting the update out in March - but the Wear 2.0 upgrade bug put paid to that. The current timescale, according to a post on the Android Wear Help Forum is for the update to arrive "end of April/late May". Yep, pretty vague we know - but at least we know it's coming.

Now, that post is 10 days old but don't fret - the official Android Wear Twitter account is still referring to it when answering people's queries on when they'll get the update...

The Android Wear 2.0 update for the 2nd-gen Moto 360 (and the Moto 360 Sport) is also marked alongside the Huawei Watch for receiving the update in April/May, as is the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE and the Asus ZenWatch 2 and 3.

Android Wear 2.0 is the biggest update to Google's smartwatch OS so far, and it brings a host of new features, including an emphasis on custom watch faces, fitness and standalone apps. Plus, iPhone users will get a better iOS/Android Wear experience.

The original Huawei Watch will get Android Wear 2.0 by the end of March
