Moto 360 (2020) gets a performance boost with its first big Wear OS update

A few more Wear OS smartwatches will likely begin receiving the H-MR2 update in the coming weeks.

What you need to know

  • Motorola's latest Moto 360-branded smartwatch is now receiving the Wear OS H-MR2 update.
  • The update promises improved performance and battery life, along with a few minor tweaks.
  • Google started rolling out the Wear OS H-MR2 update in September last year, but it was initially limited to the Suunto 7.

The latest Moto 360-branded smartwatch, which was launched in late 2019, has started receiving the Wear OS H-MR2 update. While Google had released the update back in September, only a handful of Wear OS smartwatches have received it so far (via 9to5Google).

The Wear OS H-MR2 update brings improved performance and battery life, a new Weather tile design, and a few minor tweaks. According to a few owners of the third-gen Moto 360 on Reddit, the update also fixes the broken "Hey Google" hotword.

Suunto 7 was the only smartwatch that received the update in September. Fossil began rolling out the update to its Gen 5 smartwatches in December, but quickly paused the rollout to "iron out some issues." The global version of the OPPO Watch also received the update in December. However, some of the best Android smartwatches — including the Fossil Gen 5E and the TicWatch Pro 3, are yet to receive the H-MR2 update.

eBuyNow, which is behind the third-gen Moto 360 smartwatch, is soon expected to announce at least three new Motorola-branded watches. The upcoming lineup will also include the first-ever "Moto G" smartwatch. While there is little that we know about the key specs or features of the watches currently, at least one of them will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 4100 chipset and support wireless charging.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri
