    Just downloaded the update. As others have stated...the app looks different, settings are rearranged a bit. Kind of a material design style look. So far so good, now waiting for a watch update to try out some of the new features.

    I just got the prompt also. Very strange, same change notes as yesterday and the Updated Date was still 21 April. Very strange.

    Correct.
    If I don't pay my bill a few months mine becomes just a watch when I'm fishing also. ;)
    I'm waiting to see reviews on how Wi-Fi affects battery life on the AW watches. On the S you can watch the battery drop if you even turn Wi-Fi on and it drops even faster after that. As far as how much data I use I use it to my hearts content and everything it'll do is so compacted, data wise, I average about 2 MB a month. (Not a mistype).
    Anyway, battery life with Wi-Fi using AW watches is something I'll keep looking at. I hope y'alls is better than mine.

    Re: update. I think this one just "adds support for more watches"

    I'm glad the update got rid of the constant "Android wear connected" dialog in the pull down.

    The second one today killed my watch. Constant process com.g.app has stopped. Can't FDR, can't power off, battery died. Put on charger and just a white screen. Bummer!

    No issue with mine, but I turned it off sorely after downloading the update cause I didn't eat it this evening.

    I am starting to think its my phone, maybe my phone model. Last two AW updates have completely messed up my watch. I finally used a paperclip on the reset button on the back of the watch and rebooted it for the 10th time. Selected factory reset for the 10th time and had to keep clicking white screen errors and the watch finally did a FDR. Time to go set it up again. Oh the joys of being the early users.

    I had that screen today before the update, but I think mine was the Android wear one.

    I kept getting "process.g.app.xxx" has stopped or "settings has stopped responding" messages over and over and over.
