    Did someone installed? Is it usable? Do Android Wear apps like MS Office run?

    The only information I've read in the Android Wear Forums is that it's buggy... and since we haven't heard a thing about it from Google in months, I think we can safely assume that Wear 2.0 has been effectively abandoned. I'm not going to install it.

    You probably understand with beta release software, there might be bugs and things not working correctly. And final release has been delayed again apparently. They must be having real problems with it. Possibly you could file a bug report.


    BTW I looked and considered a Huawei Watch again recently, as I've still got some of my Samsung Note7 refund money in the bank. :) But then decided I don't really need a smart-watch.

    Mike, I didn't think a smartwatch would be a necessary thing, either: and in the grand scheme of things, it's probably not. But I have found it to be absolutely indispensable! All the texts, emails, calendar reminders and the thousand other notifications that I used to whip my phone out to check, over and over and over, now come to my wrist for a quick view and either act on them or dismiss them. Once you set up a smartwatch, you really won't want to spend a day without it.

    And the Huawei Watch is, in my opinion, the best one out there right now :)

    Actually there's another more technical and probably political reason why I've decided not to bother, and that's Android Wear and China.

    Android Wear usually uses Google Now, which isn't available here unless using a VPN. So there's a Googleless PRC version that Huawei makes and uses Baidu services instead, that's only available in China and only supports Chinese apps.

    Samsung smart-watches only support Samsung devices here, and I returned the Note7 for a refund. All the other non-branded cheap ones I've already dismissed as being too crappy, and Apple Watch only works with iPhone of course.
