While Android Wear users eagerly wait for Android Wear 2.0, there is another update rolling out. The latest security update for Android Wear is termed Update M1D63G, and is only available on select devices for now.

The update has already been confirmed on Sony Smartwatch 3, Moto 360 2nd Gen, LG G Watch R, and LG Watch Urbane. If you are among the proud owners of any of the above smartwatches, head over to Settings-> About-> System updates. Here you can manually check if your device has received the latest security patch yet.

Since the update is relatively new, it may take a couple of days before the OTA update is available across Android Wear devices worldwide. Being a security patch, there is not much to expect from the Android Wear update, other than some key security boosts.

Android Wear Together is shutting down

Google created the Together platform to connect Android Wear devices, similar to Apple Watch’s Digital Touch. However, in the wake of Android Wear 2.0, Google has also announced the shutdown of the Together platform.

However, the announcement also confirms that the best aspects of Together have been integrated into Android Wear 2.0, so you might still able to share your watch faces and fitness stats after all.
