The presentation of the latest smartwatch operating system from Google took place almost a year ago. This February, Google finally announced that Android Wear 2.0 comes out for sure. Two months later, we see that only a few smartwatch models were able to get the update. Google didn’t provide any comments on the situation.
It turns out that the reason is quite simple and a bit embarrassing. During the final tests of Android Wear 2.0, Google engineers located a bug. Right now, developers are trying their best to get rid of the bug. Google representatives said that several smartwatches, like Fossil Q Founder, Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 and Tag Heuer Connected, came out with Android Wear 2.0. For other devices, the update to the new OS version is delayed until all problems are solved.
Unfortunately, the nature of the bug hasn’t been revealed. Plus, it’s not clear why some smartwatches received an update while others didn’t. It’s obvious that Google has to do a good job here because the smartwatch market isn’t exactly thriving and a lot of users put hopes on Android Wear 2.0.
