Android Wear 2.0 will not arrive on the original Moto 360

A recent tweet by Motorola’s official support twitter account has confirmed that the original Moto 360 will not be getting the new Android Wear 2.0 update


Google I/O saw some announcements around its platform for wearable devices. Android Wear, where the company gave a preview of a new update that will be hitting devices later this fall. It is said to be the biggest update to the platform since it was launched. The new version will bring a number of new features including a new user interface, better reply options including a keyboard and handwriting, watch face customisations and a lot more.

While the new update sounds exciting, Google didn't say anything about the compatibility of the new update. However, it seems that Motorola has given us a better idea about it.

A recent tweet by Motorola’s official support twitter account has confirmed that the original Moto 360 will not be getting the new Android Wear 2.0 update. The reason for not updating the devices is the same as smartphones. The first-generation Moto 360 can't keep up with the performance demands of Android Wear 2.0, but essentially security updates will be provided from time to time.

Other first generation of Android Wear devices might also face the same fate including the Asus ZenWatch and Samsung Gear Live. LG has also officially confirmed that it won’t be providing support for its G Watch.
