Google has announced that the Moto 360 is now receiving its Android 5.1.1 update. Aside from being on the latest version of Android, this Android Wear update delivers always-on apps, gesture support for UI navigation, and WiFi support for devices that have the necessary radios.

Of course, if it’s taking a while for your watch to pull the update down it likely means it hasn’t been greenlit to receive it yet. Fret not, though, because it should make its way there eventually. Let us know how you’re liking it if you’re lucky enough to be in the first wave!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  10. Just got the Update… Last device I buy with a TI chipset

    1. How is it on the 360? I sold mine and kept the sw3 since it got the update first and runs flawlessly on 5.1.1. I was skeptical on how it would run on that old chipset…

      1. It is running well at this time… took a day for the battery to start to settle in. But everything seems fine at this time.
