Google delays Android Wear 2.0 update rollout for most smartwatches

Google has issued a statement confirming it has delayed the big Android Wear 2.0 update for most of the smartwatches on the update list.

Earlier this week, Google confirmed that it had started the big over-the-air Android Wear 2.0 update to three of the older Android Wear 1.0 smartwatches: the Fossil Q Founder, the Casio Smart Outdoor Watch, and the TAG Heuer Connected. However, the company is now saying the update has been delayed for most of the remaining older devices slated to get Android Wear 2.0.

In a statement sent to Wareable, a Google spokesperson said that the update has been delayed for the remaining smartwatches “due to a bug found in final testing”. It added that it will push the update out as soon as the bug is fixed but the statement didn’t give any kind of timeline for when that issue is expected to be resolved.

Oddly, Polar’s Twitter account has confirmed that owners of its Polar M600 watch will be getting the Android Wear 2.0 update starting today, so it appears there will be at least one exception to this issue:

@kouzari Starting today, the update will roll out gradually within the next week. M600 will notify you automatically :)
