Google Launches Android Wear 2.0

Google released this Wednesday (8) the final version of Android Wear 2.0. The watch operating system has gained a completely redesigned interface, support for Payments by Android Pay, improvements in functions related to exercise monitoring and even a virtual keyboard – with word prediction technology to work well on tiny screens.

Some news require new hardware, such as Android Pay, dependent on the NFC, and the update of Google Fit, which can detect even weight-lifting exercises automatically. For now, both features are only available on the LG Watch Sport, one of the earliest watches with the new factory system.

A good news is that you can install apps through the Play Store on your own watch. They can run entirely independently from the mobile – until then, the Android Wear apps depended on an auxiliary software on the smartphone. The first “independent” applications will be Foursquare, Robin Hood, Runkeeper, Runtastic, Strava, Todoist, Nest and Uber.

These are the smartwatches that will be updated for Android Wear 2.0, according to Ars Technica :

  • AsusZenWatch 2
  • Asus ZenWatch 3
  • Casio Smart Outdoor Watch
  • Casio PRO TREK Smart
  • Fossil Q Founder
  • Fossil Q Marshall
  • Fossil Q Wander
  • Huawei Watch
  • LG Watch R
  • LG Watch Urbane
  • LG Watch UrbaneLTE (2nd edition)
  • Michael Kors Access Smartwatches
  • Moto 360 (2nd generation)
  • Moto 360 for Women
  • Moto360 Sport
  • New Balance RunIQ
  • Nixon Mission
  • Polar M600
  • TAG Heuer Connected

The question no one knows how to answer is when the watches will be updated. For now, the only smartphones with Android Wear 2.0 will be LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style, also announced today.
