Android Wear 2.0 is Finally Making its Way to the Asus ZenWatch 3

Earlier this month, we received a statement from Asus saying that the ZenWatch 3 would finally see the update to Android Wear 2.0 at some point in July. Asus initially said that the ZenWatch 3 would be updated in Q2 of this year, but with the company failing on that previous promise, we weren’t all that sure what to think this time around.

Thankfully, Asus has followed through with its latest promise as we now have confirmation that the Android Wear 2.0 update is hitting ZenWatch 3 units.

The first reported instance of this update comes from Reddit user VGStarcall with a picture of their ZenWatch 3 running the latest version of Android Wear.

In addition to the general UI and performance tweaks that are to be expected with AW 2.0, VGStarcall also says that battery life has been improved and that you can now disable any pre-installed Asus apps/software.

As for the ZenWatch 2, we’re still waiting for Asus to come through on that one. Asus has previously said that the ZenWatch 2 will be updated to Android Wear 2.0 at some point in August, and when that update does eventually hit, we’ll be sure to let you all know.

Until then, if you’ve got a ZenWatch 3, be sure to head to your settings to see if there’s an OTA update waiting for you.
