    I know, I was too. Just adding to the sarcasm.

    Got the update a day or two ago. Nothing special, IMO. But I don't use my watch for anything other than being a watch, and as a fitness tracker.

    Don't use it, I use other apps. Those apps sync their data to it, but I don't ever use it on my watch.

    I'll admit I wish we could do something else with the swipe left/right and other customizations. But Google always starts out trying to be Apple, then eventually remembers Google is about giving the user more options/choices rather than a one-size-fits-all user experience.

    I have to admit that another thing I noticed is that animations and navigation through the menus has gotten smoother, which is a good thing. Battery life is the same, so nothing to complain there.

    I haven't been tracking my battery life with official stats or anything, but it looks like it is a little better with this Wear OS 2.0 update. It still makes it from around 6 AM to 10 PM on one charge, so that's all I care about. But it does seem like there is a little more in the evening than before. I'm just happy that my battery life didn't take a dive, I was concerned about that.

    Seems about the same, maybe a little better. But definitely not any worse.

    Well, this is annoying...

    I upgraded phones and necessarily had to reset my watch. Now I'm back at an earlier version of the OS and being told I'm on the most current version.

    Any good ideas for how to force an update?

    That's strange. I would've thought resetting the watch would reset it to the most current version of the software installed.

    No good idea that we've found. You could try uninstalling & reinstalling the Wear OS app on the watch.

    Go figure, I uninstalled and reinstalled Wear on my phone with no apparent effect. Left my watch on the charger overnight, and this morning it had the update ready for me.

    It's surprising to me that the update apparently doesn't stick around if you reset the watch, but at least I got it back.
