The update includes a new notification vibration strength setting, touch lock option for wet conditions, new notification channels and battery saving background limits, and support for seven new countries.

But it won't be available for all smartwatches. Just like new versions of Android, only a selection of devices will be getting the update and when it arrives will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

This is the official rundown from Google on what Android Wear watches currently have the update, as well as those that are expected to get it in the future:

Android Wear Oreo(8.0) update is already available in the following watches:

  • Fossil Q Venture

  • LG Watch Sport

According to Android Police, watches that officially won't be getting the update include: the Asus ZenWatch 2 and 3, the first Fossil Q Founder, the second Moto 360 and 360 Sport, and the first Huawei Watch. Those watches will continue to get updates, but their core operating system will be stuck at Nougat.

As for when you can expect the update to come: If your watch is on that list, the launch date will be up to the manufacturer. Keep your eyes peeled, though - it's probably coming soon.
