Android Wear Oreo update tracker (Update: More watches receive Oreo)

Update (12/18): Google has been rolling out Android Oreo to Android Wear devices for a week now and it has already gotten through a fair number of them. As pointed out by Android Police over the weekend, a few more have just made the list.

The Fossil Q Founder 2.0, Fossil Q Marshal, Fossil Q Wander, Michael Kors Access Bradshaw, and the Michael Kors Access Dylan, are now said to have received the update, though it might take a few days to show up on all watches. What’s more, the Gc Connect, which was removed from the Oreo waitlist without explanation in the last update, has made a triumphant return: it’s now listed as having received Oreo.

Google has announced the rollout of Android Oreo for Android Wear. While not as significant an update as Android Wear 2.0 was, the new Oreo software will nonetheless bring some useful tweaks, including a Touch Lock — supposed to help in wet conditions — notification channels, battery improvements, and adjustable vibration strength (you can read about what else is included in the update here).

Now, Google has revealed a list of Android Wear devices set to receive the update on its Android Wear help page, though we don’t know when individual watches will receive it. We’ll be tracking the progress of the Android Wear Oreo update deployment in the coming weeks and months in this article and you can find out what we know so far below.
