    Haven't been wearing my aw watch lately. Started a new job where it wouldn't hold up & could be a safety issue.

    Haven't noticed any bugs though when I do wear it. Still wish they wouldn't have done away with the double press of the crown button in the Urbane to activate there mode though.

    Guys, I had to reset the phone and, therefore, the watch and found one setting that kind of solves one of the main issues I had with my Huawei Watch: the weak vibration that makes me miss most of the notifications. Under the sound menu, the last setting, we can change the vibration type to "long" or "double".
    Did you know that setting existed?

    Cheers

    My watch doesn't have a Sound Setting, but does have Settings > Notifications > Vibration Pattern. And there are options for Normal, Long and Double.

    And no, I didn't really know that was there. Thanks for sharing. I changed mine to Double just to see how I like it.

    I had not heard about it before now. From those pice it doesn't look a whole lot darker. I guess we'll see once we start getting the update. Thanks for the info.

    I was hoping someone noticed anything different apart from the new dark background... Haven't investigated much yet myself...

    I just updated a bunch of apps earlier today and no AW app update yet available for me.

    I'm on the Huawei Watch, maybe it's arriving on different dates depending on the watch model.

    Me neither, on either of our watches. I'm starting to think the Moto 360 2nd Gen may not receive version 2.8?

    I'm a little confused by this part of the article:

    Also, as {another site} points out, the naming for the software doesn't make a lot of sense. The Android Wear app on your phone will be updated from 2.7.0.177669439 to 2.7.0.180439970, but the actual software on your Android Wear watch will change to 2.8.0.181612071.

    If this is true, what the heck is Google thinking?
