Android Wear 2.8 update brings improved readability and AMOLED theme

All new Android Wear 2.0 update is reported to be available to LG Watch Style, Huawei Watch, Huawei Watch 2, Polar M600, Moto 360, Moto 360 v2, LG G Watch, Huawei 2 Classic, Sony Smartwatch, Sony Smartwatch 2, Fossil Q Explorist, Asus ZenWatch (all 3 Gens), Sony Smartwatch 3, Ticwatch Express, Misfit Vapor, Pebble, Pebble Time Steel, LG Watch Urbane 2 LTE and all other qualifying Android Wear devices.

Google has since provided some release not for the update and it comes with an improved notification layout and a darker background which makes its easier to read the display. Recently, it has hit 100 Million downloads in the Play Store.

Google has said the update will roll out over the next few days, but it didn't supply a list of devices that will get it, which suggests it'll come to all watches that feature Android Wear 2.0. According to a thread on Reddit, updating to Android Wear 2.8 gets rid of Android Wear's system-wide gray background and replaces it with a black one. The company also states the background has been made darker for better readability.

One of the most basic uses of a smartwatch, which sets it apart from a fitness tracker, is that it can show you notifications and messages. Actually, there's already the 2.6 version ready for a few wearable devices but we've got information Android Wear 2.8 is also now available. As of now, Google has not shared what particular model and brand will receive the tweaks. A redditor somehow confirmed the information by sharing photos of his watch-a Huawei Watch 2-updated to Android Wear 2.8. The process appears to be in line with how Google indicated the new firmware will handle changes. This update brings the app version to 2.8 and brings some significant changes which are welcoming. In the meantime, the software of the smartwatch has gone up to 2.8.0.181612071.
