The second-generation Moto 360 smartwatch is finally get its slice of Android Wear 2.0, the company has confirmed.

As we first spotted on Reddit, the Motorola Support Twitter account announced that the Android Wear 2.0 update is starting to roll out in phases to devices. Moto said that would be happening "as soon as today", and sure enough, some users have reported getting it already.

The bad news is that there's no ETA for the update on the Moto 360 Sport. Motorola said it had no timing information to share.

We'd initially been told that the update would arrive in May, so Moto is right on schedule. We'll be checking our own Moto watches at the first opportunity, and we've contacted Motorola for more details on the update.

We're fans of the Moto 360, and were sad when Motorola announced it was stepping away from smartwatches for the time being. The update will breathe new life into a wearable that's otherwise getting long in the tooth - even with that pesky flat tyre.
