Google's Wear OS Fall Update, first announced back in August, is now landing on the Oppo Watch.

The OS H-MR2 update, to give it its less glamorous name, adds extra Tiles to the mix, sleep tracking within Google Fit, Cinema mode and the ability to disable the Google Assistant long-press functionality.

Google also stated that the update means a 20% improvement in app loading time on the new Wear OS version.

The Suunto 7 was the first Wear OS smartwatch to get the update, followed by a collection of Fossil smartwatches earlier this month.

But now the update is rolling out to the Oppo Watch, according to a Reddit mega-thread on r/Wear-OS.

The Oppo Watch was unveiled for the global market in July, with Wear OS on board.

A curved glass display, sleek build, big battery life with fast charging, and strong spec sheet meant there was plenty to be excited about and it lived up to its billing, being awarded a Wareable Top Pick award in our full Oppo Watch review.

While the Oppo Watch does indeed run on Wear OS, the Chinese brand has also added its own touches to the UI, with its Color OS, offering a slicker experience.

It offers key smartwatch features such as payments and notifications, with a few software extras that Oppo has thrown in too.

What the Fall update means in terms of that setup is, as yet, unclear - but we'll be updating our review in the coming days, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
