Android Wear 2.0 has finally rolled out to the original Huawei Watch. Despite its popularity and the fact that it was one of the few models to support the new software’s extended beta program, it has only now gotten the final release.
Of course, there’s no official word as to why it has taken about three months to finalize the software for Huawei’s last generation smartwatch, but it is very likely due to its new Huawei Watch 2 as to why things got pushed back a bit.
Android Wear 2.0 will introduce a slew of new features to Huawei Watch owners. The highlight of the install is undoubtedly its ability to run apps even when you’re not around your phone. No longer are they stored on the phone, but on the watch’s fairly generous 4GB of onboard storage.
Owners of the original Huawei Watch can now load up the newest version of Android Wear on their wrists. Over the weekend, the update began rolling out to devices that were running the Android Wear 2.0 developer’s preview, and now the full over-the-air version is being pushed to all users.
