Android Wear 2.0 Update Comes to Huawei Watch; Beta Users of Huawei Watch 2

The Android Wear 2.0 update is one of the most talked about updates of recent times. While it was announced earlier this year, the update is yet to roll out to a large number of devices. The latest name to get this update is that of the original Huawei Watch. Users of the watch had been awaiting this update ever since it was announced, and it has now been made official.

In the past, the Android Wear 2.0 was rolling out for the Huawei Watch 2 in late March. However, thanks to some bugs that were spotted, the update was halted. After fixing the bugs, it resumed again in April. Today, the update comes to the original Huawei Watch, as well as for the beta users of watch 2, who were still awaiting the update.

While the original Huawei Watch came out in 2015, Huawei’s latest smartwatch was announced during the Mobile World Congress, which was held a few weeks after the Android Wear 2.0 announcement. Those looking forward to the watch were expecting that it comes with the latest Android Wear pre-installed. However it rolled out over the next few months.

This is an OTA update that is rolling out for all Huawei Watch 2 Beta users and all users of the original Huawei Watch.  While the arrival of Android Wear 2.0 is a good news for the Huawei Watch and Watch 2 users, what is also worth noting is that the Huawei Watch 2 is now available for the users in the UK via Amazon.

One of the biggest updates that comes with Android Wear 2.0 is that devices can now directly access the Google Play Store and can install apps independently without having to depend on the phone. Keyboard input and a large number of other features too, have been introduced. Notifications system has also been tweaked.
