Android Wear 2.0 update stalled again, this time because of a bug


It has been almost a year since the Android Wear 2.0 update was first announced and following a series of postponements it seems like it has hit a wall yet again. Now, we’re hearing from Google again, this time saying that while the update for the three smartwatches that it announced yesterday – the Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 and Tag Heuer Connected – is currently rolling out, the company has pushed the roll out to all other remaining devices to a later date because of a bug that has been found in the final testing.

Regarding the delay in the update, Google said in a statement,

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.

The update has been plagued with postponements. It was first expected to launch in Fall of 2016, but that didn’t happen. In February this year, Google announced that it was ready to roll out the Android Wear 2.0 update in the coming few weeks, but there was no news of the update for a long time. Just yesterday, there was an announcement from Google which said that the update would finally reach out to three devices at first over the next few days. The executive also added that the update would reach to all users of these three devices by April 4. We can only hope that Google fixes the update and starts rolling out soon to all devices soon.
