If you have the original Huawei Watch — which we would argue is probably the best all-round Android Wear device to have been made — then today you’re in luck. We reported last week about the impending arrival of Android Wear 2.0, but we need not wait any longer; we’ve had a steady stream of reports yesterday and today confirming that the OTA (Over The Air) update is arriving for users around Australia.
If you’ve not received it yet, don’t panic; these rollouts are always staged so it may take a couple of days. Just pop into your watch’s settings app, and check for updates. Not much point checking more than once per day (given the way Android updates work), but once you receive the update notification, plug your watch in to charge and update away.
Android Wear 2.0 gives you a significantly changed way of using your watch, but after some months of using Android Wear 2.0 (first in preview, and then release on a few different devices) you quickly get used to the way it does things. Here’s an overview of everything that’s new in Android Wear 2.0 for those who’ve not kept up to date.
