Moto 360 Lollipop update distribution hits snag, still coming this week

Last Wednesday, Google announced that a big update was on its way out to Android Wear users, with an Android 5.0 Lollipop release coming to give Wear new accessibility features and lay the groundwork for a new generation of watchfaces. Google expected the update to hit smartwatches everywhere within a week, and Motorola reached out to 360 owners to confirm an even speedier timetable, intending to update its hardware by yesterday. If you’re still looking at a 360 with no update today, you’re not alone, and Motorola has now responded to the delays with a revised ETA.
Instead of that missed Monday deadline, Motorola now expects all Moto 360 smartwatches to see their updates arrive by the end of the week. The company makes it clear that there’s no way to “cheat” here by forcing the update through any manual process, and you’re just going to have to be patient.
While Motorola doesn’t have a formal explanation for the delay available, the official forum manager who shared this news mentions that it may be tied to a fix for the off-center watchface issue we’ve already seen on 360s that were among the first to have the update arrive. Hopefully, that means that even those will be receiving a second update to resolve the glitch in the next few days.
