Interesting. "Android OS 8.0.0" is replaced by "System version H" in the version display shown in the original thread.
Yes, I found this odd too. I added the animated GIF to the post for reference.
It is much in line with the rebranding that started with WearOS... Google is progressively removing visible links between the branding used for phones and the one used for watches. Not that far off from Apple with watchOS vs iOS (and tvOS and macOS, they all share the same core).
Since i installed a wearOS update on my iPhone a couple of days ago that was advertised as bringing the functionality of selecting the watch faces through the app back, i have nothing but trouble. The app sometimes doesn't start, other times it freezes the phone for several minutes and the watch now disconnects several times per day. I don't know what they did but they better fix it fast as this is extremely annoying!
I've noticed the same issue with the wearOS phone app but don't have the disconnect issue. This may have something to do with the recent 12.1 IOS update as well.
I’m also working with iOS 12.1 (iPhone X) and with last version of Wear OS app in the phone (3.9.36, 2 days ago), but everythink works fine here with my CM45: App is always starting well, I have no problems with the bluetooth conection (reliable and stable as always), and I have no freezing problems with the phone...
Do you often turn your phone off?
Many of us are just putting it to Flight Mode when we go to sleep, and we can stay many days without completely switching it off. The bluetooth system needs the phone to be switched off quite often (at least once a week) to properly work, otherwise it starts to loose properties... for instance it doesn’t send the agenda to the car’s hands free system.
I just toss mine on the charger when I go to sleep.
Same here, and never in the bedroom, always in the kitchen.
Anybody already blessed with the update? Observations, insights?
Nothing yet - UK based.
Nothing on the US either.
A new IOS version went up yesterday. Looks to be an attempt to address this issue.
This one didn't come to me. Last update i got for Wear OS was on December 2nd.
The one I have is 18.104.22.168.ROW
...aaand another update was just posted:
I now have phone app v22.214.171.124 ROW
Also WearOS watch app update came through last night:
Wear OS v2.2
Home App 126.96.36.199827614
Same here. I noticed though yesterday that my battery was only 4% when i was returning from the office. In the past, it would have been around 25% after a day in the office. Also seems that the transfer frequency from Google fit from the watch to the phone has changed or something similar as i noticed the watch and phone app were not synced which i never experienced in the past.
Our update shouldn't be too far away.
9to5Google: Wear OS ‘H update’ w/ Android 9 Pie begins rolling out to some Gen 4 Fossil, Skagen watches.
I just got this update today. Watch UI surprisingly feels MUCH more fluid, like breathing new life into the watch.
Can you post a screen shot or a picture of the System > About
