Motorola Lollipop update schedule says Moto 360 rollout should finish today

Motorola Lollipop update schedule says Moto 360 rollout should finish today
Five days ago, Google officially announced the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Android Wear devices, and said that the update would be rolling out to users over the course of one week. With that time table in mind, all Android Wear devices should have the update available to install by Wednesday, and the Moto 360 is on track to beat that deadline today.

According to a Motorola forum post, the Lollipop update began rolling out to Moto 360 users last Wednesday in a staged rollout. Only 5% of Moto 360 users got the update that first day. The next day, December 11th, the update was pushed out to a total of 25% of Moto 360 users. Saturday the 12th got the number up to 50%; and, today, the update should finish rolling out and be available to all Moto 360 users. 

Motorola says that the nickname for the update is actually "Coral", and lists the standard Android Wear 5.0 changes, including the official Watch Face API, an undo button for dismissed cards, the Quick Settings menu with Theater Mode, and new pages for battery and storage info. It doesn't appear that Motorola is adding in any other updates specifically for its devices.

Still no update for my watch either. However I'm planning to not update after I read so many negative reviews on Google Play about the update reducing battery life to half and numerous bugs. Would be interesting if Phone Arena could investigate these claims about potential problems with Android Wear 5.0.1 Lollipop update.

Update: I received the update and it seems to be impossible to skip it. The update notification keeps occupying the screen until you update with no apparent way to swipe it away. So, I was forced to update. Now let's see how the battery life will look like.

Its a good update, much snappier and new watch faces. I see no reason why not to update it

Battery life is way more hardware than software. My first 360 didn't even last two hours. I tried everything and when I finally put it in airplane mode and watch it die in 3 hours I knew it was hardware. My new one lasts a day and a half easy. So even if this new update cuts the half day or forces me to turn off auto brightness, who cares really. I charge it every night anyways.

Battery was better since the previous update the Moto 360 battery life improved a lot and what about the UI? The New API face, the material design of Lollipop and the Moto face creator on the Play store are the best tools you can get for this Smartwatch. Take a look at this you will know more about the update. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=S31pckpQ45U

Battery was massively improved in the previous update. I can easily go two to three days between charges with ambiant mode off. 36 hours with ambiant mode on. Zero complaints in the battery department after the past update. Hopefully this update (haven't gotten it yet) doesn't reverse that. I'm at 79% after 11 hours today.

Although I partially share your disappointment, I wouldn't be so excited about Lollipop if I were you. I had the Moto X (2014) for a while and was disappointed by the Lollipop UI. There are many reliability issues and it just doesn't have the consistent experience and functionality of previous versions. KitKat is still a solid performer and I honestly prefer it to Lollipop right now...

Why doesn't every moto 360 get the update the first day? What holds it back?

They role it out in phases just like Google does with all the app store updates. Or like they did with the Lollipop update for Moto X, they do it to make sure that there are no major bugs that would affect every user at once. If they find bugs they slow down or stop the release fix it and start over. That is what happened to this update.
