Android Wear smart watches receive KMV78V update


The LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live have both received a new OTA upgrade today, bringing us up to versionĀ KMV78V on both fronts. The update came without a changelog, and we can’t seem to find any noticeable differences compared to the previous firmware.

It’s entirely possible that the update is just doing some light housecleaning (your typical round of bug fixes and performance improvements) ahead of the device’s public availability next week, though we’ll keep digging to make sure Google didn’t tuck something away.

We wouldn’t be surprised if this isn’t the last small update before the watches begin shipping so stay tuned for any possible further developments that may arise before then. If you were one of the lucky 6,000 developers to receive an Android Wear smart watch at Google IO last week let us know how the new firmware is working out for you.
