Even if no real details are known yet, a recent CNET interview revealed the launch of a Wear OS update.

The information is not official, but credible, and AndroidPolice says they rely on the source of this news.

Wear 2.0 will bring lots of bug fixes, new features and some new devices as well, considering the multitude of Wear devices announced at IFA Berlin this week. The update is also well timed with the launch of G Watch R and the Moto 360, the two most important Wear devices of the year. The update could be related to their particular launch as well.

LG G Watch R teased – will make an appearance at IFA 2014

If you’re bored of waiting for Moto 360’s release, you can console yourself with LG G Watch R which will debut at IFA 2014. The smartwatch was recently teased in a video and it shows a circular design similar to the Moto 360 and it will sport Android Wear as well. No news regarding its technical details were given as of yet.


The LG G Watch, the previous model, is already on the market and it shows functionality blended with an unpleasing aesthetic. Its squared design is similar to that of a developer product rather than a consumer device and, to top it off, LG G Watch was put in a shadow by the Moto 360 which will be released in the next few months itself. Most of the device’s popularity stems from its circular design and functionality.


LG G Watch R is the circular device with a step-counter watchface and a distance gage accompanied by a digital compass. The device has a physical button on the side and presents more easy-to-access controls than the first G Watch.

More news regarding the LG device will arrive at IFA 2014, held in Berlin from September 5th to 10th
