Google has announced yet another update for Wear OS (formerly known as Android Wear). The tech giant named the latest update as “H Update” though after updating your watch, it won’t display that, it will instead tell you it’s running Wear OS 2.2. No info yet on why Google gave it that name as it’s a bit confusing.
- Battery Saver Mode Updates: This update extends your battery life even further by turning on Battery Saver to only display the time once your battery falls below 10%.
- Improved Off Body Efficiency: After 30 minutes of inactivity your watch will go into deep sleep mode to conserve battery.
- Smart App Resume for all Apps: You can now easily pick up where you left off across all apps on your watch.
- Two Step Power Off: You can now turn off your watch in two easy steps. To turn off your watch, simply hold the power button until you see the power off screen and then select ‘power off’ or ‘restart’
The update is expected to get to smartwatches “progressively” “over the coming months”, so depending on your luck it might be quite a while before you see it. What’s more, your device may not immediately be eligible for this update, Google says, without adding any more details.
