Google recently announced the broader update to Android 6.0 would begin rolling out to Android Wear devices, activating the speaker for compatible hardware, bringing more gesture support, improved messaging support and Marshmallow features such as Doze. The update has begun rolling out to Moto 360 Gen 1 owners, but it looks like Huawei Watch owners may have to wait just a little longer.
The Gen 1 Moto 360 is being shown some love for once, with several owners reporting the update – Android 6.0.1 software build MEC23I – is being presented to their watch. To receive the update you do need to have the watch paired with your Android Device with the Android Wear app.
While we haven’t heard from LG, Sony or Asus about their Marshmallow update for Android Wear, Huawei UK has spoken up about the update through twitter saying the update will be here in the next month:
@skedone Hello! The update should be here within the next month. We are doing our best to make sure it will go smoothly once it is available

While there’s no reason it couldn’t start being pushed straight away, the choice of words does indicate a slight delay. Huawei have been testing the Android Wear 6.0.1 update since at least the start of the year, with one lucky owner getting a beta build early.
The update is definitely coming, but it could take just a little while longer for Huawei Watch owners, as for other manufacturers we’ll have to wait and see.
