Wondering where Android Wear 2.0 is? Google delayed it to fix a bug

Wondering where Android Wear 2.0 is? Google delayed it to fix a bug
Google first announced that Android Wear 2.0 was ready to go back in early February, but only a few smartwatches have gotten the software as an update. The rollout was delayed and Google was completely silent. No one had any idea of what was going on, but Google has finally released an official statement on the matter that at least tells us why the Android Wear 2.0 update hasn't arrived.

Google said in an official statement first given to 9to5Google:


So, at least now we know that there was a bug that caused the delay. We don't know what kind of bug it might have been, but obviously it must have been a pretty nasty issue if it caused a delay in the update for just about everyone. Unfortunately, Google didn't go so far as to give any sort of timeline on when the bug might be fixed, so we'll have to go on being patient.

easier to use, more customization, quicker access to apps. I like it

I got the update on my TAG Heuer Connected already on Friday as soon as the update was announced. I'm amazed because not only TAG Heuer released the update earlier than everybody else, but also because they included with it all the collection of the Connected Modular 45 watchfaces as well as the TAG Heuer Studio app to customise your watchfaces! I didn't see any bugs until now, so I don't know what's the issue. However the TAG Heuer Connected and the first Fossil Q Founder use the same Intel processor, so the bug may have to do with the Snapdragon 400 that most other smartwatches use.

Google always remains silent on issues. So frustrating.

Was wondering why my Urbane 2nd Edition LTE hasn't got the update yet...
