Google unveiled the biggest update to its wearable operating system at I/O 2016: Android Wear 2.0 has arrived with major improvements in the way it manages messaging and now allows you to hand-write cleverly on your watch, it also features automatic activity tracking and fully customizable watchfaces.

These are the major changes, but just mentioning them like this does not do them justice: that's why Google has posted a thorough walkthrough of all the important new features in Android Wear 2.0.
