Is your smartwatch getting Android Wear 2.0? Here's the scoop



Google unleashed the second iteration of its smartwatch and wearable OS today, and Android Wear 2.0 brings plenty of new features and enhancements, with the new LG Watch Style and Sport the first to ship with it out of the box. What other watches of the currently available will be getting the Android Wear 2.0 goods, and is yours among them? Well, we probed Google, and got the following roster in alphabetical order:

  • ASUS ZenWatch 2 & 3 
  • Casio Smart Outdoor Watch, Casio PRO TREK Smart
  • Fossil Q Founder, Fossil Q Marshal, Fossil Q Wander
  • Huawei Watch
  • LG Watch R, LG Watch Urbane and 2nd Edition LTE
  • Michael Kors Access Smartwatches
  • Moto 360 2nd Gen, Moto 360 for Women, Moto 360 Sport
  • New Balance RunIQ
  • Nixon Mission
  • Polar M600
  • TAG Heuer Connected

As you can see, all of today's most popular Android smartwatches are being upgraded to Wear 2.0, so you don't need to buy a fresh wrist-wrapper to bask in the second edition of Google's wearable operating system like inline action and material-ly designed apps and notifications.

Apparently, Sony SmartWatch 3 (2nd from the right) won't get Android Wear 2.0.

yes, hoping that Sony's SW3 is included in the update since it has a physical button, and for the fact that it's in the image above suggest that it could receive Android Wear 2.0. Hoping that the list will still be updated soon :(
