Google is in the midst of rolling out Android Wear 2.0 to many smartwatches on the market.
It has released three major updates to Android Wear in the past two years. In Android Wear 2.0, you get a design overhaul, standalone apps, improvements to watch faces, messaging, fitness and a whole lot more.
Information on when updates will land on existing devices has been in short supply, although many now have the new software.
So here's as much information as we can find on exactly what watches already have it and when others might get AW2.0.
Android Wear 2.0: Release date
Google announced last spring that its wearables OS would soon get a massive update, in the form of Android Wear 2.0. The official announcement of Android Wear 2.0 was on 8 February 2017, launched alongside the LG Watch Sport and the LG Watch Style.
For existing devices, Google started releasing the software to manufacturers on 15 February. It needed to be tested by individual companies before being sent as an over-the-air update, hence the delay to your specific device.
The following devices have been confirmed as either having the update or soon to get it. We're updating the details as companies tell us more.
Android Wear 2.0: Asus
Asus said that the Android Wear 2.0 update will arrive on the following devices:
