    Did it fizzle out or something? Was it buggy? I know I can flash it to my Huawei watch, now that the 1-year warranty is out. But now I'm hesitant to do so because I haven't heard a thing about the update!

    Does anyone here know what's going on?

    I believe @codesplice flashed it and it was buggy. I haven't heard much since then.

    I'm not exactly thrilled with Wear 1.2... every time I change phones I have to factory reset the watch? How ridiculous!

    So.... Despite Christmas coming up, would you say now is the wrong time to buy an android wear device (which might or might not be compatible with the final upgrade)?

    Well, I have the Huawei Watch and absolutely LOVE it. Seems to me that any recent model of Android smartwatch should be able to upgrade to Wear 2.0 when it's released. The Huatch is notable because it's one of very few watches that can flash the developer previews right now. But I think I'll wait until all the bugs are worked out... I rely on it way too much :)

    I read the moto 360 2nd gen will get the update but the first gen will miss out. Which makes total sense since the first gen had a garbage SoC.

    I have the Huawei watch, great watch! But Android wear is the heart of the watch and it keeps having little heart attacks. Connection dropped, unpair-pair. I wish Android Wear would give us some kind of patch to fix these problems while we are waiting on 2.0!

    My dimming bug is still around. I can't explain it because it's so intermittent. But every once in awhile, I'll get a notification and the watch face will dim below ambient level. Like brightness setting 0.5! It could be Gmail, a text... anything could trigger it anytime. I've become very adept at getting to Settings --> Adjust Brightness from rote memory (I certainly can't see what I'm doing unless the room is pitch dark) and setting it back to 5. Bizarre!

    One thing I hope for in 2.0 is the ability to disable ALL notifications and then add the ones you want, as opposed to having all apps send notifications that can and going in and blacklisting each one... one at a time, or even if on the screen, you could multiselect (toggle) all or whatever ones and then apply. Tedious... my old Gear 2 Neo allowed this, on the Gear app!

    other than that, loving my Huawatch! Haven't had it long, still learning all there is to know...

    Okay, Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) has stated that Android Wear 2.0 will roll out February 9th. Based on his track record, bank on it.
