It is that time of the year when the smart watches are finally getting the update. After Pebble got its dose of Android Wear compatibility, it is the turn of Motorola Moto 360, LG G Watch R and Samsung Gear Live to receive a rollout of Android Wear 5.0.2. Though, as of now only the changelog of Motorola Moto 360 is available on its official website. According to the website, this software update for the smartwatch will fix some bugs, trick the system into some optimization and improve the performance. It will also update the Google Play services. The build number stated on the website is LWX49L and this update will push the software version to 5.0.2. No new features are introduced in this software update.
Not much to say but at least the smartwatch owners can stay calm keeping the fact in mind that something is happening at the software end in order to enhance their experience. It is to be noted that the software upgrade is available for all users and you cannot downgrade to the previous version once you have hit the ‘update’. Though, it is an automatic update so, sooner or later, the smartwatch will update to the newer version on its own. The software will be rolled out to the entire user base in a couple of days.
