Android Wear Oreo update tracker (Update: More watches receive Oreo)



Update (02/12/2018): Google has been steadily rolling out Android Oreo to Android Wear devices since mid-December 2017, and now a few more have been added to the pile (thanks, Android Police).

The Misfit Vapor, TAG Heuer Tag Connected Modular 45, Nixon Mission, and LG Watch Style are now said to have received the update. You can check out the full updated list below.

Google has announced the rollout of Android Oreo for Android Wear. While not as significant an update as Android Wear 2.0 was, the new Oreo software will nonetheless bring some useful tweaks, including a Touch Lock — supposed to help in wet conditions — notification channels, battery improvements, and adjustable vibration strength (you can read about what else is included in the update here).

Now, Google has revealed a list of Android Wear devices set to receive the update on its Android Wear help page, though we don’t know when individual watches will receive it. We’ll be tracking the progress of the Android Wear Oreo update deployment in the coming weeks and months in this article and you can find out what we know so far below.
