A new version of Android Wear is starting to roll out these days. The update has reached several devices, such as the Moto 360, the Sony Smartwatch 3, the LG G Watch, the ZenWatch or the Samsung Gear Live.
The update doesn’t bring any exiting new feature, but basically fixes some bugs and offers stability improvements.
If you have one of the smart watches running Android Wear, you are probably going to receive the notifications soon for the OTA update. With the new version, you also will have an updated Google Play Services.
Android Wear 5.0.1 had some problems, mainly regarding several issues with Google Fit. Apparently, the step counting was terribly different between watches and phones, so this point will probably be fixed with Play Services 6.7.
The new Android Wear version will eventually reach your device on the next days, but if you are in a hurry to have it now, you can just try to search manually for the update. Probably it won’t work, but you can try to search for updates. If it does work, you will find the file ready to download.
As usual, check that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network before downloading the update and make sure that you have at least 80% of battery when you start the installation process. Once the update is finished, the watch will restart running the new software.
You can find the detail on Motorola’s website.
