Update: A community manager in the Android Wear support forums (via Android Police) has delivered an update regarding Android Wear 2.0 rollout schedule. The list of smartwatches still to receive Android Wear 2.0 — which you can view below — will get it “end of April/late May,” wrote the community manager.

That’s kind of a weird timeline, you would normally expect to see “end of April/early May,” but given how the rollout has occurred so far, it’s plausible that we could still see up to four weeks separating the various updates.

We’ve updated our tables below to reflect the most recent information and we’ll let you know when we learn more.

Android Wear is Google‘s dedicated platform for smartwatches. Having launched the version 1.0 of Android Wear in 2014, it wasn’t until February of this year that Google introduced its first major upgrade to the OS in the form of Android Wear 2.0.

In case you’ve missed the news, Android Wear 2.0 delivers support for standalone applications, the Google Assistant, smarter watch faces with complications, improved notifications, a redesigned Google Fit app, and much, much more.

It’s the most exciting upgrade to hit Android Wear since it was released, so fans are naturally eager to learn which smartwatches will get the Android Wear 2.0 update, and when. If you’re one of those people, you’ve come to the right place.

Which smartwatches will get the Android Wear 2.0 update?

Though many Android Wear watches will get version 2.0, most of the first wave of devices won’t be upgraded. Watches such as the Moto 360, LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live released in 2014 aren’t set to receive the update. Similarly, the ASUS ZenWatch and Sony SmartWatch 3 have also been ruled out.

Other products released sometime later have been confirmed. These include:


Which smartwatches already have Android Wear 2.0?

Since its launch, Android Wear 2.0 has rolled out to a number of devices, and a few others have been released running it out of the box. These are comprised of:

  • LG Watch Urbane
  • LG G Watch R
  • LG Watch Sport – running out of the box
  • LG Watch Style – running out of the box
  • Polar M600
  • Fossil Q Wander
  • Fossil Q Marshal
  • Fossil Q Founder
  • Michael Kors Access Bradshaw Smartwatch
  • Michael Kors Access Dylan Smartwatch
  • New Balance RunIQ
  • Nixon Mission
  • Tag Heuer Connected
  • Casio Smart Outdoor Watch (WSD-F10)
  • Casio PRO TREK Smart (WSD-F20) – running out of the box

Some of the watches on the list above may have only begun receiving the update recently (like the Watch Urbane and G Watch R) and it may not have rolled out to all devices yet. If they’re on that list, though, the update should be hitting your smartwatch any day.
