Google releases Android Wear software update to LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live

LG G Watch Samsung Gear Live

The LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live - two smartwatches which were announced at Google I/O are available for purchase on the Google Play Store. Now in preparation of their release next week, Google is pushing out an update to the Android Wear platform, which brings build KMV78V to both devices.

Currently only a lucky few Google I/O attendees likely have their hands on these smartwatches. The LG G Watch may have already begun shipping to some users, but the Gear Live is scheduled to ship Tuesday.

The software update being pushed out is a modified version of Android 4.4 KitKat, labeled Android 4.4W. There is no changelog available, but the update is said to be very small, meaning it likely only includes some bug fixes. One specific fix that seems to be included for the Samsung Gear Live is for an issue which had the device inverting the watch face colors when the display dimmed.

Those installing the update can do so by downloading it to their phones and then transferring it over to the smartwatch via the Bluetooth connection. If you come across any new features feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
