Six new smartwatches receiving Android Oreo, including Huawei Watch 2 and Casio WSD-F20
The list of Android Wear smartwatches that are supposed to receive the new Android Oreo update is quite long. Some of the wearable devices on that list have already received the update, while others should get it very soon.

Today, Google confirmed that six smartwatches are now getting the long-awaited update: Huawei Watch 2, Casio WSD-F20, Casio WSD-F10, Polar M600, ZTE Quartz and Mobvoi Ticwatch S & E.

All these smartwatches were part of the initial list of wearable devices pursuing the Android Wear Oreo (8.0) update, but not in the first wave of smartwatches to receive it. Only five smartwatches were upgraded to Android Wear Oreo when the update was announced: Fossil Q Venture, LG Watch Sport, Louis Vuitton Tambour, Michael Kors Sofie, and Montblanc Summit.

In the meantime, lots of other smartwatches got the update, including the LG Watch Style, Misfit Vapor, Nixon Mission, TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45, Fossil Q Founder 2.0, Fossil Q Marshal, Fossil Q Wander, Michael Kors Access Bradshaw, and Michael Kors Access Dylan.

If you own any of the six smartwatches that are now receiving Android Wear Oreo, you should check for the update. Keep in mind that this is a staged roll-out, so it might take some time for the update to arrive on all wearable devices.

It's such a shame that the original Moto 360 is left in the dust. :( Love my old smartwatch, but it seems it will forever be stuck on the underwhelming Android Wear 1.5.

I'm amazed that your Moto 360 is still kicking. Mine died with the battery going bad along with almost everyone else I've talked to that had that watch. :)

I had already sent in a tip. My Misfit Vapor got the Oreo Update nearly 2 weeks ago.
