Android Wear 2.0 gets delayed until early 2017, third developer preview brings Play Store to your wrist

29 September 2016
Google has announced that it can't make its initially promised release time frame of fall 2016.

if they delay it, i sure hope they will upgrade the hardware in it too. so it matches next years technology. and not just be an outdated smart watch.

AnonD-591003, 29 Sep 2016Who buys this things?! Lmao. Total no brainer and waste of ... moreMost people use it at workplace where using your phone while working is not allowed. Its that simple. I use my smartwatch at work. People who use their hands and have no time to reach their pocket to get their phones would want to use smartwatches. Also perfect for students during lectures. Perfect for employees who dont want to look rude during meetings. Perfect for health enthusiasts to track down their health data all day long. Many more examples. You just got to be more open-minded with the smartwatch usage. The world doesn't revolved around you only.

Smart watches are a total damage, no one buys these things.

I'm keeping it in my bag. And it's very nice that you can get all info or answer on calls or messages quickly without getting phone. Not using watches for fitness.

On contrary from what you said, my zombie days were over since I got my LG Urbane LTE 2nd edition.
I won in average back few hours of life, no internet browsing on the go, phone is long time lost somewhere plugged into a charger at the bedroom.
Now with android wear 2.0, it's a matter of time that I'll unplug the phone from the charger and let it die for good as no need to sync or download apps with it. Really good news, been waiting for it, was getting tired of making adb install to my smartwatch on some of the apps that are not wear, maybe the range now is wider - anxious to check. Will revert back once I know more.

Who buys this things?! Lmao. Total no brainer and waste of money! I have a Broadcom one and the only time I use it is when going to a party. Meaningless.
