The Moto 360 Sport is one of the many smartwatches that supports the Android Wear 2.0 platform update. However, owners of this wearable device have been made to wait for a very long time. They’ve still not received the firmware update but that might be about to change soon. A new report suggests that Lenovo-owned Motorola might soon release the Moto 360 Sport Android Wear 2.0 update.
Motorola released the Android Wear 2.0 update for the standard second-generation Moto 360 smartwatch back in May. It didn’t release the update for the Sport variant at that time which was not surprising.
The Moto 360 Sport hasn’t exactly proven to be a hit for the company. It didn’t do well in the market which prompted Motorola to pull its listing from the Google Store merely months after the Moto 360 Sport was launched. Other retailers started selling it at steep discounts just to get rid of their inventory.
Manufacturers don’t tend to spend too much time in supporting devices that flopped as quickly as they support devices that brought in a lot of customers for them. No wonder why Motorola has been so slow to update the Moto 360 Sport to Android Wear 2.0.
Motorola has now published a new support page on its website that confirms that the Moto 360 Sport Android Wear 2.0 update is going to be rolling out soon. Those who own this smartwatch should keep an eye out for build number NXH20Z. It should arrive over the next couple of days.
