The last news I've heard is that Android Wear 2.0 will start rolling out on 2/9 and that the ZenWatch 2 is supposed to get it. Does anyone have any definitive news (if not then rumors will do).

Android Wear 2.0 downloaded to my AT&T GS6 this week. Haven't seen any real changes. Here's a screen shot. I'm assuming this is 2.0 that was being discussed.

Not sure if related to update but watch is no longer getting through the day. I use to get at least 2.5 days. Now I'm barely getting 12. Checked all my setting and nothing has changed. Noted on Google Play that folks with other watch vendors are saying the same thing about battery drain.

I've noticed a definite difference as well but not as much as yours. I had thought the recent update was just the January security update.

When people refer to Android wear 2.0, they're talking about the firmware on the device, not the app version. Zenwatch 2 doesn't have the update yet. The update of the Android wear app could be causing more battery drain though.

Thanks for that. I was wondering if that was the case. Since restarting my watch my battery drain did go away and I'm back to 2+ days.

It's April. Any news? I got some sort of notification about what 2.0 can do for my watch but no actual update. I don't know where the notification came from so I swept it away without opening.

I'm totally impatient for 2.0 but I'm still letting you guys go first and waiting to see how it performs before I jump onboard. After reading lots of bad stories from Urbane users etc having crippled watches after the update I really don't want to have the same experience as them. I love my watch too much :p
