Google delays wider release of Android Wear 2.0 to patch a bug

Bad news for smartwatch owners hoping to receive the Android Wear 2.0 update in the not-too-distant future: Google’s been forced to delay the upgrade after a (presumably major) bug surfaced during final testing.

“We have started rolling out the Android Wear 2.0 update to Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 and Tag Heuer Connected,” writes the search engine giant in a statement issued to 9to5Google.

“For other devices, the update is currently being delayed due to a bug found in final testing. We will push the update to the remaining devices as soon as the issue is resolved.”

We have to say, it’s a little strange that the bug has only just been uncovered. After all, the LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style have been running the firmware since they hit the shelves last month.

No word on when it’ll start rolling out

Unfortunately, Google failed to specify when the update will start making the rounds for other devices — but at least we know it’s still on the way and should be arriving soon.
