Motorola decides to roll out Android Wear 2.0 for Moto 360 Sport


Motorola has just announced that one of its smartwatches, the Moto 360 Sport will finally receive the long-awaited Android Wear 2.0 update. After updating the second-generation Moto 360 back in May, Motorola backtrack on its plans to leave the Moto 360 Sport without the update.

Unfortunately, the Moto 360 Sport did not sell well at all, which forced Motorola to pull the smartwatch from Google Play Store. That's the main reason Android Wear 2.0 was delayed until now, and probably why Motorola was considering not offering the update at all.

Today, the US-based company announced it will roll out the Android Wear 2.0 update for the Moto 360 Sport. Along with the update, new features and improvements will be added, as well as many bug fixes.

Some of the new features the Moto 360 Sport owners will be able to use after the update, include Doze mode, Google Assistant (English and Germany only), as well as side button functions (press and quickly release to access apps, press and hold to launch Google Assistant).

According to Motorola, the update will be pushed in waves to Moto 360 Sport users over the next few days, so watch out for a notification on your smartwatch that will tell you when it's available (software version NXH20Z).
