ENHANCEMENTS

This software update is for all Moto 360 Sport users. After installing the software update you will notice changes that include:

On-watch Play Store With Android Wear 2.0, you can browse and choose which apps you want on your watch, and download them directly from the new on-watch Google Play Store. Whether you use an Android phone or iPhone, you’ll be able to use apps built for Android Wear 2.0.

Note: you need to log-in with your Google account on your watch to download apps from the watch Play Store.
Material design & app launcher The design has been completely optimized, which accommodates better for the Moto 360’s round screen. It includes a new design for the card stream, reformed peeking, and a whole new app launcher. Instead of the swiping left to find your apps, push the side button to display them in an arc. You can even rearrange your apps and put your favourites at the top, just press and hold and drag them.
Input method & Smart Reply Now it’s easier than ever to read and respond to a message right from your Moto 360. When you receive a message, you can expand the notification and tap to respond by dictating, typing or handwriting your answer, or drawing an emoji. Need to respond quickly and discreetly? Use Smart Reply, which instantly and intelligently suggests different responses based on the message you received.
Google Assistant Android Wear 2.0 brings the Google Assistant to your wrist, so you can find answers and get things done—hands free. Ask your Google Assistant about the weather or remind yourself to bring an umbrella. Make a restaurant reservation or navigate to work. You can even update your shopping list right from your wrist. To ask for help, just hold down the power button on your watch or say “Ok Google".

Important: currently available in English and German only.
Lightweight Doze The new Android Wear update supports the lightweight Doze mode to help extend the battery life of your watch.
