Huawei Watch, Moto 360 Gen 2, and other watches should get Android Wear 2.0 by end of April or late May

We're impatiently waiting for Android Wear 2.0 to roll to some of the most popular watches released: the second generation Moto 360 and the Huawei Watch. There are also other watches that still haven't received the update and weeks are passing by quickly without a hint of when exactly we should expect the new firmware to hit.

Android Wear support forums' community manager Ernest has posted an update a few hours ago explaining the situation with the different Wear watches and their update timelines. He reiterated the watches that have already received the update, but most importantly, he said that the remaining models should receive their updates by end of April or late May.

LG pits a pile of G6s against the elements, showing off features in a Rube Goldberg relay-race

LG may not have the perfect track record when it comes to things like strength (or reliability), but it really looks like they're doing everything they can to turn that impression around with the new G6.

Following South Korea, LG G6 starts its global rollout today

LG's G6 has been getting a lot of praise since its announcement. It doesn't just fix the issues faced by many with the G5, it also ups the game with great build quality that survived the torture of master phone-wrecker JerryRigEverything and a balanced mix of features that impressed our resident cynical-reviewer David Ruddock.

After being available in South Korea for a couple of weeks, the G6 is ready for its global launch and that's happening starting today. The flagship will become available for purchase in "key countries in North America, Asia, Europe, Central and South America over the course of the next several weeks." That's pretty vague but it should mean that the wait is getting shorter if you live in a country where LG traditionally launches its devices quickly enough.

The LG G6 gets tortured by JerryRigEverything, emerges mostly unscathed

LG isn't really well known for building strong, reliable smartphones. Last year's G5 was a build quality nightmare, and even its newer phones are still bootlooping (on a completely unrelated note, check out our Nexus 5X long-term review). With the G6, though, LG incorporated a beefy metal frame, as well as some other little tweaks that make this 2017 flagship one of the more durable phones that JerryRigEverything has tested.
