Android Wear 2.0 rumored to launch October 15th
According to a report published on Thursday, Android Wear will be updated to version 2.0 next month. The report says that the update will be arriving to the appropriate watches starting on October 15th, via an OTA update. There is speculation that the timing of the Android Wear 2.0 release, is planned to coincide with the launch of the Mototola Moto 360 and the LG G Watch R.

So what new features should you expect in Android Wear 2.0? Besides the usual bug fixes and software enhancements, we could see support for GPS and Bluetooth headphones. There is no guarantee that the Android Wear 2.0 update will have that exact moniker, and the timing of its release is still up in the air.

As it is, another update to Android Wear is expected first, and will improve navigation and voice commands on the platform. Google says that Android Wear will be updated often. If all of the features that Google expects to add to Android Wear are completed before the end of the year, it could make watches powered by the OS much tougher competition for the Apple iWatch. The latter could be unveiled next Tuesday, but might not be released until next year. In that scenario, any improvements made to Android Wear might drive sales of devices like the LG G Watch, LG G Watch R, Motorola Moto 360 and the Samsung Gear Live, before the iWatch enters the picture.
