Google is now commencing the rollout of Android Wear 5.1.1 for its smartwatches starting with the ASUS ZenWatch. The update will also start seeding to other Android Wear devices over the coming days. The revelation was made by a user on Reddit, accompanied by an image to prove his claims.
Coming from Android 5.0.2, this is quite significant for the wearable as it will introduce WiFi support, contacts and much more. Google has been relatively slow with the rollout of the new update for its devices ever since it was announced last month. However, ZenWatch users can be relieved that their wait is finally over.
Besides the ZenWatch, the LG Watch Urbane is the only smartwatch to be running Android 5.1, so other wearables like the LG G Watch R, the Moto 360, Sony SmartWatch 3 etc are still waiting for an update. Do you own the ASUS ZenWatch and have you seen the update as of yet? Sound off below.
