I haven't worn mine for a few days (I've been sick), so I shut it off. Turned it back on today and there's an update. No idea what changed. Wear version 1.5.3579309, Play Service 10.0.84

Where are you guys getting that information? All I can find on the watch itself is Build number MWE76.

I didn't get an update, at least as far as I'm aware.

Edit: just realized I needed to hit "Touch to view" under Settings > About to get this info. Mine's at 1.5.0.3272311, Play services 10.0.84, Android OS 6.01, September 1, 2016 Security patch level.

Well, that update got a changelog. My ZW3 still isn't seeing the update, and I wish it would:

2.Improve the accuracy of algorithm.
3.Improve the stability of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection.
4.Remove charging/discharging notification message
5.Update translations in various languages
6.Add notification sound when discharging
7.Support algorithm of falling detection (ZenWatch Manager companion app v3.2.0.161220 is needed)
8.Support ECO mode setting in the ZenWatch 3
9.Support "Button setting" for user customization
10.Add new themes for watch face of Aureole, Golden Era, Silver Ribbon, Ostra, Geometry, Signature, Cruise.

I'll say! Guess we'll get it eventually.

I'm also waiting for an update for my OnePlus 3 from Marshmallow to Nougat; haven't received that either!

I have ZERO patience! LOL!

No update here. What are the benefits you're expecting with this update?

The changelog is a few comments above. Mainly I'll be glad to lose the charging notifications, and of course more reliable wireless connectivity never hurt. Maybe they'll fix the random switching to DND mode.

Received my watch on 1/6 (finally) and it received the update immediately after initially setting it up. Have you tried rebooting the watch? Or maybe even doing a reset?

I've tried rebooting and shutting down/restarting. Haven't tried a reset yet, which I could do, I suppose. I'll report back in if I do so.

Alrighty, didn't have to do anything crazy. Last night, got a notification that I needed to plug in to install and update, and it installed with no problems. Not noticing anything major, but I'm glad to see things working as they should.

Now, we'll just have to look forward to Android Wear 2 apparently coming in early February.
