Bug-fixing update rolling out to Moto 360


The Moto 360 has garnered some pretty positive press, though the device has its issues.

Now owners of the Moto 360 are in for a treat.

Motorola is starting to roll out a new update for the device, and some users have already been able to download it. Though the software version remains the same, it has a new build number of KGW42R (from KGW42N) and Android Wear version number of (from And while this update isn’t adding a bunch of features, it’ll probably make the device a lot better to use. Here’s the official changelog:

  • Bluetooth connectivity: Improved Bluetooth connectivity between the watch and phone to reduce momentary disconnects experienced by some users
  • Charging notification: Added a message to confirm that Moto 360 is charging in cases when its battery is fully depleted
  • Bug fixes: Implemented bug fixes and other system optimizations

Users are reporting that the device feels significantly more fluid, so those optimizations seem to be doing their job. Two of the biggest issues with the Moto 360 are on their way to being fixed, so it makes the device a lot more attractive. If you haven’t gotten your update, keep waiting as it’s gradually rolling out to people. When you do get it, tell us how you like it!

    It’ll be good to put the build number and the Android wear version number in these kind of updates. Will be helpful to know whether you’re anticipating the update or already have it.
