Android Wear 5.1.1 has been out for around a month and his hit nearly all of the latest smartwatches. That is of course, excluding the Moto 360. The update, which was expected to come tomorrow according to the Lenovo CEO, has been delayed due to performance being “not quite there yet,” on Motorola’s only watch.
There are lagging behind both LG and Sony when it comes to the update, but those watches have one thing in common. All of their latest watches are running on a Snapdragon 400 processor whereas the Motorola opted for Texas Instruments OMAP 3 processor. There was speculation from the conception of the device that it might not perform very well, and it could be coming true.
Motorola and Google are working together to solve the issue, so we all can hope for the best. Motorola’s next watch is surely around the corner, and they definitely don’t want to leave a sour taste in the mouths of their initial supporters. Although they took to Twitter to unofficially announce the delay in the software, there’s still no report as to when the release date will come. We expect by the end of June, but you never know.
