In part two of our series on manually flashing OTAs to Android Wear devices, we're going to take a look at the Asus ZenWatch.
Before beginning, make sure you have the following:
- The latest Google USB driver and platform tools, both of which can be installed via the Android SDK.
- The OTA ZIP file that you want to flash.
How To Flash
- Go into the Settings app on your watch, then scroll down to "About," and tap on it.
Five months ago, Under Armour purchased both Endomondo and MyFitnessPal. Now the former is learning how to play along with the latter. In Endomondo version 11.2.1, users can access their MyFitnessPal information without leaving the app.
This update isn't just for the nutrition-minded among us. It also adds the ability to integrate your account with Google Fit. This way you can take workout data collected in Endomondo and share it with Google. Read More
It seems like the only thing anybody can talk about is Android M, but we should remember that we've got about 4 more months with Lollipop v5.1.1 as the current version until Mango Mojito (probably not) is officially released in October.

Before bits and pieces of Google+ departed from Google's web toolbar earlier this month, the bar's notification panel began labeling notifications according to their origin. G+ notifications for example got a Google+ icon, while notifications about a user's photo library got the Google Photos badge.
Tonight it looks like Google is rolling out another change to the panel, adding a settings button which allows users to filter out G+, Photos, or YouTube notifications individually.
