Android Wear Oreo update tracker (Update: More watches receive Oreo)

Update: Several more Android Wear watches have received the Oreo update including the HUAWEI Watch 2 and ZTE Quartz.

Published onFebruary 16, 2018

Update (02/12): Another handful of Android Wear devices are receiving the Oreo update. Google posted an update about the new devices in its Android Wear support pages (via Android Police) yesterday, though its terminology is a little unclear.

Google says the devices below are "currently pursuing" the Android Wear Oreo update. We don't know if that means it's rolling out, about to roll out, or rolling out in a year's time, but the update has already been spotted on the HUAWEI Watch 2 so it's likely happening now or very soon for all of them. Here's the list:

  • Casio PRO TREK Smart WSD-F20
  • Casio WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch
  • HUAWEI Watch 2
  • Mobvoi Ticwatch S & E
  • Polar M600
  • ZTE Quartz

Regarding the HUAWEI Watch 2, there are reports that the update disables the Android Pay app outside of the US and UK. This was never officially made available for Android Wear in other regions but people had been using it without a problem. If you're an Android Pay user in another territory, might want to think twice about upgrading.

For the full list of watches receiving the Oreo update, head to the coverage underneath.

Google has announced the rollout of Android Oreo for Android Wear. While not as significant an update as Android Wear 2.0 was, the new Oreo software will nonetheless bring some useful tweaks, including a Touch Lock — supposed to help in wet conditions — notification channels, battery improvements, and adjustable vibration strength (you can read about what else is included in the update here).

Now, Google has revealed a list of Android Wear devices set to receive the update on its Android Wear help page, though we don’t know when individual watches will receive it. We’ll be tracking the progress of the Android Wear Oreo update deployment in the coming weeks and months in this article and you can find out what we know so far below.
