Performance issues delay Android Wear 5.1.1 for the Motorola Moto 360
Other Android Wear powered watches have already received Android Wear 5.1.1. The update brings Wi-Fi support to four Android Wear smartwatches, including the Moto 360 once that timepiece receives it. The other models include the LG Watch Urbane, Sony Smartwatch 3 and the Samsung Gear Live. The LG G Watch R will receive Wi-Fi support in a future maintenance update.
With Android Wear 5.1.1, these five watches can remain paired to an Android handset even if a Bluetooth connection is lost. There is a caveat. The only Wi-Fi networks that these watches can connect to are those that were previously used by the smartphone that the watch is paired with. Meanwhile, other Android Wear 5.1.1 features include always on apps, the ability to change font size, and support for emojis.
