During their Google I/O conference, Google got a chance to launch one of the major Android Wear updates since the launch of the platform. Version 2.0, is the newest OS in the Android Wear industry, set to bring a variety of exciting enhancements such as tweaks to the user interface, improved smart reply options, and a lot more. Although the huge update is currently available as a developer preview, some OEMs have already confirmed that some of their smartwatches won't be getting it. One such device is the original Moto 360. Motorola took to their Support account on Twitter to say that the first-generation Moto 360 was unfortunately not slated for the Android Wear 2.0 upgrade. As much as this news has busted a few bubbles, Motorola probably has its own reasons behind this decision. The company however promised future "essential patches" as new security concerns arise. Meanwhile, LG has taken the same decision and confirmed via their Twitter that the original LG G Watch will also not receive the Android Wear version 2.0 update. This according to them is because the device has been discontinued, which is not surprising considering the device is over 2 years old. Does the news affect you? What are your thoughts on the Android Wear version 2.0? Let us know in the comments.
