Google Delays Rollout of Android Wear 2.0 to Address Bugs

In February, Google confirmed that it would start rolling out the Android Wear 2.0 to existing smartwatches over the coming weeks.

And while some smartwatches have been lucky enough to receive the update, many have not, and the delay has led many to speculate. But Google has finally come forward and announced what the hold up is: Bugs. The company has confirmed that some new bugs were discovered in late-stage testing, so they have opted to delay the rollout of Android Wear 2.0 until they can fix them.

Here’s the official statement by Google, as provided via Wareable:

“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. 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.”

While a delay is never fun for those looking forward to getting new software, it’s certainly better than some bigger issue arising with the software actually out in the wild.
