Android Wear 2.0 update fails to fix persistent issues, unleashes bugs

Wear 2.0 that was first released in February 2017 brings custom watch face complications, Google Assistant support, and a new system interface to compatible smart watches.

The issue with the Google Assistant that have been reported by users is that it is incapable of performing tasks other than carrying out basic internet searches. The assistant should also be capable of setting timers and control smart lights which it simply isn't doing.

The problem with reminders has long been noted and it is a bigger issue. Users have had a problem that caused the recurring reminders to be marked as completed. This could be a major issue as several users set reminders for important chores through the day. Google did introduce a patch for the problem although for some reason it is not functioning as it is supposed to.

Google has stated that it is aware of the current issues and is working on fixing them. It wouldn't be too long before users get a fix for their smartwatches. However, it is noteworthy that consumers are not taking a lot of interest in the wearable technology and such issues will only drive away the potential buyers.
