Android Wear 4.4.W.1 Update to Roll Out On All Android Wear Devices

Google introduced Android wear early this year as a way to bring sanity to the wearables market. Android wear is essentially the wearables version (smartwatches, smart glasses and more) of Google’s Android for Smartphones. Android wear was received well by developers and some even went ahead to build standalone apps before it was available on the market.

With such success, you will obviously expect Google to bring improvements to Android wear and that is exactly what the company is doing. Google announced that Android wear 4.4.W.1 update will be rolling out to all devices in the coming months.

This update will help bring GPS support and offline music playback to Android wear devices. For the GPS to work, the Smartwatch will need to have the required sensor like the one seen on Sony’s Smartwatch 3. This GPS support will be able to track you speed and distance. With the offline music playback support, you can leave your phone at home and still be able to listen to music that is stored on your watch.

Secondly, the update will bring downloadable watch faces. This will allow you to customize your watch’s home screen to show the information you want.

Google also announced that it was working with different manufacturers to bring different smartwatches with different styles to the market.
