Significant Android Wear Update Expected Mid-October

We could see a new and improved Android Wear experience as early as next month, according to Android Police. Google has already said it’s working on making its wearable OS better, but we didn’t expect updates to arrive so soon. The search giant is reportedly targeting an OTA update that could arrive on or around Oct. 15.

Google already revealed some of the things to expect when Android Wear 2.0 hits, but it’s likely the search giant didn’t divulge the full picture. Android Police admits it has no idea what the update will bring to the table, or if it will roll out to all devices or just a limited selection. Sony’s latest smartwatch, the SmartWatch 3, will already include a deeper Android Wear experience when it launches, but devices like the G Watch and Gear Live will need to be updated.

Android Police typically includes a score with rumors, but this one was simply labeled “credible.”

“Unfortunately, we can’t publish the direct evidence for this rumor for a number of reasons, but we’re very confident in the reliability of our source here,” Android Police said.

The Android Wear update will allegedly coincide with the release of Motorola’s Moto 360 and LG’s G Watch R, which are among the more attractive smartwatches we’ve seen.
