    Thanks for the feedback Jonny & Pere. That sounds frustrating Pere; I would not want to do that all the time, once is enough.

    I'm with you popcenator. Still waiting on AW 2.0 also.

    Hello everyone,

    Do you guys think there is a market here for games?
    Of course it must be paying or with inapp games as I can't see how an advertisement banner can fit... maybe videos?
    I'm still pondering wether or not start to develop for it...

    cheers,

    Thierry

    Hello gamayun. In my opinion, no. Others may have a different opinion, but I don't see a market for games on smart watches.

    I agree. I've tried a few once in a while & always lose interest quick. & I'm someone who likes to play games on my phone.

    No games, batteries hardly last as it is and tapping and swiping gets old fast.

    Rumor has it (via Moto Twitter) that the AW 2.0 update is finally ready to roll out to Moto 360 2nd Gen watches; starting any day and possibly today for some people.

    I'm sporting the Huawei Watch 2 Classic as I type. Still putting it thru it's paces - I got it for the NFC chip, but have to see if it's really worth it over the Moto 360 Sport (which I lost, but could have replaced for half the price of this). I also wanted to see if GPS would be a little better. Still testing.

    Androidwear 2.0 is a definite upgrade. Still a real chore to manage/navigate, but it's a big deal downloading stuff directly from the Play Store on the watch....or with Wear Manager apps I'm unable to find I've had success opening in the Store on the watch (from my phone). FINALLY you can keep apps you don't want on your watch from installing from your phone.

    But Play Music is still borked. It is THE most complicated, unintuitive, backasswards way I've ever dealt with trying to get music on a device.

    And 4GB of storage is such a joke. First off, after the operating system you have more like 2.2GB. But then your watch won't actually let you use the last 500MB (explain this to me?!?), so you're down to 1.7GB. By the time you get done with the bare minimum of apps, you have about 1GB for music.

    Apparently this is only for the 360 2nd Gen at the moment and not the 360 Sport also. The 360 Sport is apparently getting AW 2.0 "later". At least Moto confirmed that it is getting it sometime later.

    Is the 2015 version the second gen? I did see a headline about it coming out for some 360's now, but didn't click through because I was busy with other things.
