ZTE's first Android Wear watch has been in the rumor mill for a couple of months. We first heard about its existence in February then showed you exclusive photos and details in March. Now the Quartz is official and everything we said was right on the money.

[Annoying] Play Music on Wear 2.0 does not support sideloading music from your phone

In Wear 2.0, Google is trying to make the watch more of a standalone device with its own version of the Play Store and apps that operate independent of your phone. However, that also means Play Music loses some features. It turns out you can't sync music from your phone to the watch in Wear 2.0, and downloads direct to the watch are very limited.
