There hasn’t been a consistent release roadmap for Android Wear 2.0 and that hasn’t been ideal for those who have been waiting for this major update. Many compatible smartwatch owners have had to wait for several months just for the update to start rolling. The wait ends now for LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition owners on AT&T. The carrier is now rolling out Android Wear 2.0 for this smartwatch.
The first generation model of this smartwatch actually received the Android Wear 2.0 update back in April this year. Verizon rolled out Android Wear 2.0 for LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition about a month back. AT&T hadn’t confirmed at that point in time when it would follow through.
AT&T is now rolling out a firmware update for this smartwatch with build number NXH21O. Weighing in at 345 MB, it brings all of the new features that are included in Android Wear 2.0. This update also enables the smartwatch’s NFC chip which means that it’s now compatible with Android Pay.
This isn’t exactly surprising given that Verizon’s update for this smartwatch on its network also enabled the NFC chip, so this was to be expected with AT&T’s firmware release as well.
LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition owners on AT&T should soon be notified of an available firmware update if they haven’t already received it yet.
