Kaloyan, 10 June, 2016

Motorola is seeding new firmware updates for the Moto 360 2nd gen and Moto 360 Sport smartwatches. If you didn't get the notification, you just need to manually check for an update.

The Android Wear OS is getting new security updates and stability improvements but there is more. Motorola has included some new features for its watches such as a Moto Body app update with new heart-rate features. Here is the changelog:

  • Moto Body enhanced calorie calculation - Moto Body now takes heart rate into account when calculating calories burned.
  • Moto Body heart rate continuous measure - Heart rate measures in Moto Body are now continuously updated, you don't need to tap to re-scan while you are in the app.
  • Security updates - Includes the updates of Android monthly security bulletin until May 1st 2016.
  • Stability Improvements - Includes changes that fix bugs and improve stability.

The build number of this update is MWD49B.

Other Android Wear-based smartwatches should be getting the same update sans the Moto-exclusive features.
