Huawei starts rolling out Android Wear 2.0 update to the Huawei Watch.

Last year, at Google I/O 2016 held in San Francisco, United States, Google started its annual developer conference where it released the latest version of Android as well as the latest version of the Android Wear which jumped up to version 2.0.0. This Android Wear update brought with it lots of stablility improvement and bug fixes with the update. Google, same as the Android version, released a developer preview version of the Android Wear update to the smartwatches. Some of the Android Wear smartwatches to get the update was the Huawei Watch released by Huawei.

The Huawei Watch was scheduled to be the first to get the Android Wear 2.0 update after a long time with testing the new version of Android Wear. This obviously didn’t happen as the Watch saw some bugs with the update to 2.0 so there were some delays to the update reaching the Watch.

Now, we have got the confirmation that Huawei has started rolling out the Huawei Wear 2.0 update to the Huawei Watch which makes its Android Wear version up from 1.0 to 2.0. The Huawei Watch as already mentioned was one of the few smartwatches to have been in the Android Wear 2.0 Developer Preview is finally getting the update. Launched back in 2015 and running on the Snapdragon 400 with 512MB of RAM, the Huawei Watch has plenty of power to run the latest update with ease.

The second iteration of Android Wear now sports a darker look and feel to it. With the new update you can also run apps directly from the smartwatch instead of having to rely on Bluetooth tethering. This is one big feature to be launched with the Android Wear 2.0 update released by Google which makes the Android Wear platform even more powerful.

Android Wear 2.0 will feature a native Play Store app which will let you download smartwatch specific apps. The update will also enable an on-screen keyboard, for those times when you need to reply in jiffy. You will also be able to make payments now with Android Pay on board.

Along with much more optimized notifications, quick replying and the integration of the Google Assistant, the Huawei Watch will definitely get much better than it did with the current firmware.
