    Figured I'd start a thread on this so we can let each other know when the 2.0 update is released for the LGU2 watch on AT&T. Hopefully sooner than later.

    When you update, let us know how you like it? Thanks.

    Hi there. Yes that was a good idea. I have one too. I figured that watch would be one of the first updated since LG made both of those new watches.

    I tweeted on both LGUS and LGUSmobile asking when we could expect the 2.0 update. I read that people have had success from Fossil and others in getting a release estimate that way. Will let you know if I hear anything.

    Ok so no dice. LG techs are saying they don't know if or when we will get the release. Basically, she suggests buying their new watch. Foxbat was right.

    Wow. I called them (LG)yesterday and asked about the update and told them specified specifically that I had the urbane 2nd lte watch and where was the update. The associate told me that they sent it to Att already for them to release to our watches (not sure which service you use). Called att and they said they'd not yet received the update. Our watches were confirmed to get the update so maybe it will come soon. This watch was pricey so I hope it gets that update. Fingers crossed.

    I didn't see AT&T confirm that there will be AW 2.0 update. Did I miss anything?

    It will be wasting your time asking any support for update. They are the last to know.

    So I think the chain of command would be something like this:
    Release of AW 2.0, for the Urbane 2nd Edition to LG
    LG tests and then releases to AT&T
    AT&T tests and then releases to users

    What is so hard to understand is Google used the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition for all the AW 2.0 preview testing then for LG not then follow up with the final version?
    What's up with that? I'm running the latest preview build but unfortunately the 2 buttons don't work anymore

    LG wants to sell as many of their new watches as they can and they know that current LG Watch owners are part or this market. It's about money.

    I would buy the new LG watch but it's just way to big. I like the size of my existing LG Urbane 2

    Good Morning. I do too. Seriously it seems like the urbane 2 can do what the new watch can short of NFC which LG says the urbane 2 doesn't have which isn't a deal breaker for me. I just want that update. Hope we get it soon as it appears other watch makers are already pushing their AW2 updates to their older watches.

    The LGU2 does have NFC also. The teardown photos of the device show the chip. Also, over in Reddit a member of the AW team answered some questions after the 2.0/new watches announcement and said it had NFC ( and would receive Android Pay).

    There have been announcements about other watches receiving 2.0 soon, but none have actually started yet.

    If you uninstall the last update of Android Wear on the watch (not the phone), the buttons will work again.

    Well, glad to see that Huawei watch got the 2.0 update. It's terrible that the Urbane 2nd Edition will be last receiving this update given this was the watch that google and LG partnered on while doing the pre-release testing. Shame on you LG!

    I figure that today is the last day of early May. Tomorrow is mid month. Where's that update...

    last day of early May.
    In business jargon I believe 'early' refers to any day prior to the last possible day.

    Yesterday I canceled my ATT service on my LGU2 watch. Tired of wasting $14.67 a month on service I rarely use. Wanted to try the 2.0 update with the enhanced LTE features - but tired of waiting. My Samsung Gear S3 is my daily driver now and I am very happy with it. I am done with LG and android wear for now. It doesn't surprise me that Tizen now has a larger share of the wearable market than Android Wear. http://www.androidauthority.com/tize...d-wear-771231/
    According to the latest data, Samsung’s Tizen surpassed Android Wear during Q1 of 2017 to become the second largest smartwatch OS in the world..

    Not anymore I'm not. I can tell you that since this, I have bought a Samsung Gear S3 and a Galaxy S8 instead of a LG sport and LG G6. LG being silent on this major update and three months in still nothing - I am done with LG products. Sammy has got their act together.

    Verizon LG Sport cancelled, no word of the Sport released in other countries as stated at release, ASUS may be out of the watch game like Motorola and Sony. We're still awaiting and it's not looking good.

    I get a little excited when it takes an extra second to check for updates. Keeping fingers crossed.

    I wonder if the update has been ready, but taking an extra month or so for Verizon and AT&T to approve since as far as I know, there is only one firmware variant. And the bad news would be that a smartwatch is going to be really low priority for them especially with new watches for sale.
