If you have been keeping up with the Huawei Watch news, chances are your eyes haven’t moved away from that screen very much. Plenty of online publications have been talking about Android Wear 1.4 coming to this device today. Huawei themselves gave the announcement via a support thread earlier.

“The Huawei Watch update will be version 6.0, release MEC23L. This will be an OTA due for release beginning today.”

This was exciting, until Huawei hit the same thread to inform us that such was not the case after all. The Chinese manufacturer is now telling us the update is not coming today, but that it is “expected in the near future”.  After an apology and some other details, they left us at the same uncertain spot we were at the beginning of the day.

While the latest Android Wear update is expected in the near future, it will not begin its rollout today as previously posted. We apologize for the confusion. We’re just as excited as you are for the new features that are coming to the Huawei Watch.

If you need a refresher, you can take a look at what to expect on Google’s blog post at the following link. Again, we apologize for the confusion and will keep you posted as we learn more!

New features include improved gestures, more voice control support for messages and calling improvements. Definitely something to look forward to for those of you who have purchased this smart watch. This device can definitely hold its own, something you can read all about in our Huawei Watch review. It is nice to see that the company is also holding up on the software side of things.

With all that in mind, we have to leave you with more mystery in your mind. When will the update come? We can’t say for sure, but Huawei does say it is soon(ish?). Maybe they were going to release it and something happened, which would mean it is only a matter of getting things worked out.
