The rebranding of Android Wear to Wear OS was announced this week, and now various smartwatches have to be updated to reflect the change.

Wear OS doesn’t include any new features. Google is just providing a software update to remove any mention of Android Wear throughout the interface. Wherever the old name is, Wear OS will now be present. Surprisingly, a large number of partners have stepped forward to upgrade their smartwatches as the version of Android for wearables enters its next phase.

Here are the smartwatches Google says are “currently pursuing” the software update:

– Casio PRO Trek Smart WSD-F20
– Casio WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch
– Diesel Full Guard
– Emporio Armani Connected
– Fossil Q Control
– Fossil Q Explorist
– Fossil Q Founder 2.0
– Fossil Q Marshal
– Fossil Q Venture
– Fossil Q Wander
– Guess Connect
– Gc Connect
– Huawei Watch 2
– Hugo BOSS Touch
– Kate Spade Scallop
– LG Watch Sport
– LG Watch Style
– Louis Vuitton Tambour
– Misfit Vapor
– Michael Kors Acess Bradshaw
– Michael Kors Access Dylan
– Michael Kors Access Grayson
– Michael Kors Sofie
– Montblanc Summit
– Movado Connect
– Mobvoi Ticwatch S & E
– Nixon Mission
– Polar M600
– Skagen Falster Smartwatch
– TAG Heuer Connected Modular 41
– TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45
– Tommy Hilfiger 24/7 You
– ZTE Quartz

While there’s been a commitment from the makers of these smartwatches, none of them are promising specific release dates. So the software update for Wear OS could come next week or in six months for them. Only time will tell how active anyone is to get the upgrade out.
