    Apparently our watches WILL get updates. My brother and I both got software updates for the first run, and the only thing I can see is under cellular, they added the Numbersync option. If your phone supports it, have fun..unfortunately I have the Nexus 6 so I will not be able to enable this

    I also see that its been mentioned in another thread but was at the end, so just put this here so people can get to it easier :P

    Have you tried making a call using a bluetooth headset since the update? I'm waiting to update to see if this function is included. Thanks!

    Mine got updated as well. NumberSync is now available, that's really the biggest difference. I did notice that some of the watch faces are slightly different as well...

    Are your phones on Marshmallow? Wonder if being on Lollipop and updating the watch may affect it negatively/ break functionality.

    I've updated to the latest AW on the phone, but my phone OS is Android 5.0. The only 'issue' I've noticed so far is the Wi-Fi turns on automatically sometimes even after I turn it off. Haven't tested tracking runs yet. I'll be doing that in about an hour.

    Yeah, I'm running 6.0.1 on my watch but 5.1.1 on my phone... Seems to be just fine, haven't had any issues or come across anything that doesn't work.

    OK, I'll be waiting with baited breath to hear back on how your run tracking went. Also, maybe now you no longer have to set up your BT headset every time anew to listen to music, it is hopefully all automatic now.

    Anyhow, here is one person waiting to hear back from you

    I had my first GPS tracking test since the update and it was mostly successful. I ran 2 miles with Ghostracer and then 2 miles with Endomondo. The GPS tracking was perfect for both runs. The GR run was first and it synced fine to my phone over cell data. When I finished the 2nd run with Endomondo it didn't transfer the run to the phone. This isn't an update issue since it has happened a few times before the update. Anyone use Endomondo and know the exact procedures to follow at the end of the run to sync perfectly each time over cell data? I've used Endomondo since November and this has happened about 4 times. Not sure what I'm doing differently when it happens. Cell signal is strong every time.

    One reason I like GR is it has an option on the phone app to re-sync the last run from the watch when this happens. I wish Endomondo had that.

    Thank you! Installed the update on my watch and it still works (biggest fear was that I would lose functionality, technology can be fickle)...

    I always synch Endomondo via BT with my cell after my runs, because I run on trails with spotty cell reception, so sorry I am no help, there

    Who is the update sent by? I have a Nov issued watch, but live in Canada. Is it by carrier?

    Yes, from AT&T, the only version ever sold in Nov.

    Guess I will have to borrow an AT&T sim card if I want update..rats!

    A lot of those here updated are not using AT&T SIM cards. If you don't see any update, you might need to drive down to US

    I have a Cricket Wireless phone plan and a Truphone SIM in my watch and I received the update. I received the update while tethered to the phone with BT and cellular off on the watch.

    Thanks for the info. I usually never tether w/ BT, but will try tonight with cell service off over night

    A lot of good stuff only happens when you use BT

    Anyway, you should be able to manually pull the update from the watch. No need to wait for it to get pushed to your watch.

    No update last night, and the updates on watch says I am up to date (6.0)
    Any other ideas to get 6.01 ? Any else in Canada get the update on our carriers?

    That means AT&T is restricting it on US IP address only. I have seen them restrict phone updates this way (and also can restrict on AT&T SIM only at the same time).

    How does the update come? Thru the phone wi-fi, then pushed to watch B/T? Or just wi-fi direct to watch? I could run phone thru VPN with US IP

    When I received my update I believe my phone was connected to my home network by Wi-Fi and the watch was connected to the phone by BT.

    I'd guess it is through the phone's network connection. Then via BT to watch.

    Jeeze, if this is true, just use a VPN on your phone and pretend you're in the US.
