Asus ZenWatch 2 also getting Android Wear 2.0

Its no secret that Google has experienced significant delays with launching Android Wear 2.0. When Asus promised that the Zenwatch 2 and 3 would get Android Wear 2.0 in early Q2, it took Asus until the beginning of Q3 to finally get the update for the Zentwatch 3, which just came out. Today, the Zenwatch 2 is also getting the update, well, at least the 49mm version.

Users on Reddit and Googles product forums have confirmed the updates arrival. There is even a list of instructions on how to force the update if you just cant wait for the update to hit your wearable. It consists of downloading an OTA file and flashing it via a couple of ADB commands. If you dont know what either of the aforementioned things are, we dont recommend you try it at home.

Android Wear 2.0 brings a number of enhancements and optimizations. New features include Android Pay support for wearables equipped with NFC, a new UI interface, new watch faces, improved notifications, and Google Assistant.
