Huaweis first Android Wear smartwatch is still a great smartwatch today. Released in 2015, its looks still hold up today (better than the Huawei Watch 2 in our opinion). So you can understand why so many folks are patiently waiting for the new Android Wear 2.0 update.
The Huawei Watch is now getting the AW update, however only those who are on the latest developer preview will get it first. Once the update rolls out to experienced testers with no issues, Huawei should give the green light to those units running stable software. The update should arrive for all variants of the Huawei watch: Classic, Women, and Standard.
The 2.0 update brings the new Android Wear Play store, and more Wi-Fi capabilities than before. Standalone apps, new watch faces, improved messaging, and Google Assistant are just a few features of the new update. Google has been working for several months on AW 2.0 and the Huawei Watch was a developers test device so we have high expectations for this update.
Oh yeah, and if you’re updating from the developer preview, your watch’s data will be wiped.
If you are feeling adventurous and impatient, you can try installing the developer preview on your Huawei Watch. We don’t recommend you try if “fastboot” and “ADB” don’t ring a bell.
