Android Wear 2.0 It is based on Android Nougat 7. A little over a month ago, an update program was launched with the Oreo 8 beta, although it was only available for the LG Watch Sport, and it is expected that in the next few hours it will be officially presented and will reach the rest of the devices of other brands very soon, although this does not mean that it will already be available from this afternoon for specific devices, because as we know, this determines the manufacturer of each smart watch or bracelet.
This is extracted from a publication made just a few hours ago by Hoi Lam, moderator on Google Plus, within the Android Wear development forums.

Among the wide catalog of what’s new in Android Oreo for Android Wear, there are adjustments in the intensity of the vibration to receive notifications (it is now possible to mark the intensity: strong, medium or low), an improvement of the touch lock for when the user is in wet conditions, offers compatibility with more languages from different parts of the world geography (specifically: Dutch (Belgium), Czech, Spanish (from El Salvador), Spanish (from Honduras), Spanish (from Paraguay), Portuguese (Portugal) and English (from Nigeria), since the Spanish (from Spain) had already been offered, as well as an optimization to save battery.
Although there is still no list with the confirmed devices that would receive Android 8 Oreo, the truth is that having already tested in the LG Watch Sport, the logical thing is that this is one of the first devices on the list, to later join others from the competition, among which could be models from LG itself, as well as from Casio, Fossil, Huawei, Michael Kors, Moto, New Balance, Nixon, Polar and TAG.
Let us remember that smartwatches They are in continuous growth, and it is expected that in the coming years their expansion will continue to grow in Spain, Europe and the world, hence these gadgets have to be up-to-date when it comes to software and hardware news.
