Android Wear 2.0 confirmed to arrive in early February

Android Wear logoAlthough Google delayed the release of Android Wear 2.0, the search giant has major plans regarding the new operating system for wearable devices. Many companies support Google's Android Wear 2.0, so expect a plethora of smartwatches to be announced in the first half of the year.

Companies like Casio, ZTE and Huawei have already confirmed they will release Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches in the coming months. Casio's new Pro Treck rugged smartwatch was officially unveiled last week at CES 2017 and is expected to go on sale in late April.

However, there are already a bunch of Android Wear smartwatches available for purchase on the market, which will be upgraded to the new version of the OS when it gets released.

Google postponed the launch of Android Wear 2.0 for Q1 2017, but the company did not confirm an exact release date. The good news is we have new information that somewhat suggests Android Wear 2.0 will arrive in early February.

Apparently, some developers have received notifications from Google Play that state Android Wear 2.0 is launching in early February. The notification also mentions that the new OS will include a new on-watch Play Store to help users discover apps right on their wrist.

It's unclear whether or not compatible smartwatches will be eligible for Android Wear 2.0 updates the moment the new OS goes official.

In any case, we've put together a list of smartwatches that have been confirmed to receive the highly-anticipated Android Wear 2.0 update:

Moto 360 Gen 2, Moto 360 Sport, LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, LG Watch Urbane, LG G Watch R, Polar M600, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch, Nixon Mission, Tag Heuer Connected, Fossil Q Wander, Fossil Q Marshal, Fossil Q Founder, Michael Kors Access Bradshaw Smartwatch, Michael Kors Access Dylan Smartwatch, Huawei Watch, Huawei Watch Ladies, Asus ZenWatch 2, and Asus ZenWatch 3.
