Android Wear 2.0 was announced at Google I/O in May. Motorola 360 (1st gen), which was launched almost 2 years ago in 2014, clearly has old hardware, which isn’t compatible with the newest Android update.
Android Wear 2.0 allows any Watchface to show data from any app. Users can customise the information, based on their needs. Android Wear 2.0 also gets Smart Reply, a new keyboard powered by Google’s Machine Learning, and better handwriting recognition on the watch.
Google is improving Fitness with automatic detection for activity on Android Wear 2.0. Fitness data can also be shared across apps with the new Google Fitness API. Google Android Wear 2.0 will also stream music, and users will be able to play Spotify, while working out with no need to carry their phone along.
