Google delays Android Wear 2.0 update due to a bug

Google started rolling out the Android Wear 2.0 update to three watches — Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 and Tag Heuer Connected on Thursday. But due to a bug found in the Wear 2.0, Google has halted the update for other smartwatches. Android Wear 2.0 was launched by Google in February after which the company has delayed the update process.

In a statement to 9To5Google,
Google said
, “We have started rolling out the Android Wear 2.0 update to Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 and Tag Heuer Connected. For other devices, the update is currently being delayed due to a bug found in final testing. We will push the update to the remaining devices as soon as the issue is resolved.”

Google in its statement hasn’t clarified anything about the bug in question and neither given a timeline as to when will the Android Wear 2.0 rollout resume.

Android Wear 2.0 update brings in a host of new features to smartwatches. The most major feature as a part of the update is the ability to run standalone apps which don’t require an Android smartphone around the watch. As such, the smartwatches now get a dedicated Play Store for apps that run on smartwatches. Apart from these major changes, Android Wear 2.0 also brings in subtle improvements in watchfaces, notifications and interface design.
