    Hello all

    Has anyone updated to ios11 ? Is Google Wear app still working as it should ?
    Some people experienced problems in June (beta of ios11) with other Android Wear watches.

    I’ve had BT problems since iOS 11 & I notice a few pages back, someone else was complaining of similar things.

    Did you watch the vid I posted ? The Bluetooth button is turned on/off constantly as if someone was pressing it, not sure how the firmware or phone would change this :(

    That’s good news at least. Trying to update to the new watch fw, but it won’t let me. Tried everything in the guide on the previous page, most of the time it takes 40-50 clicks on the update, gets to around 10% then says its up to date

    I give up for the night !!

    Thanks for sharing. The trick seems to be to "dismiss" and go back to the watch face once the Update download has completed. Otherwise it will not reboot and "reset".

    Just updated.
    Didn't do anything smarter than plugin near wifi and have the iPhone far away.
    It automatically d/l and asked me to install.

    Anyone knows what has changed in the new firmware ?

    I believe it includes the September security fixes.

    Hey all,

    Is there anyway I can download music to my watch off the play music app? I would just like to use my watch and headset at the gym without my phone and hoping this is possible.

    I downloaded my music to the app google play and go to run without the iphone listen the music with the headphones
    Firstly I added the music through the computer ( making playlist) to the app and after downloaded the same music to the watch

    Sorted in the end thanks, it’s still not upgraded firmware, but I did upgrade the android wear app and it seems to be connecting once again :)

    After update...only 2 changes I see. First, the PIN to unlock watch after taking it off, if you have a PIN (number) the number pad is slightly different. Second, and maybe it's just me but I swear I am getting better battery life. Been wearing for 5 hours exactly and only dropped 17% which is 3.4/hr. That's the best I have ever had.

    I haven't measured battery life on this latest update and since I'm not wearing it today, I will start taking some metrics the next time I do. Thanks for the update!

    It might be me but I think there is a subtle change to the 01 Carrera face when on dim. That tends to be my default watch face and the dim setting feels / looks slightly brighter, possibly better contrast / detail in the logo, markers and dial?!

    I have experienced a drop in battery performance based on my comments above. Wonder whether the extra brightness/detail on dim is consuming more power on a like for like basis. Hoping it improves as we cant go back to the last firmware.

    I tried about 40 times, finally got it updated in the end.

    Unfortunately though, the watch disconnects constantly from the phone, so it’s kind of pointless at the moment.

    The connect card tried but fails each time to connect.

    ya, would be interested in seeing more battery results. After my initial day with approx 3.4% per hour or approx 29 hours of life, I am now back at around 4 or maybe 4.2% per hour exactly as before the update. Same watch face, usage, etc. Will keep an eye.
