Just yesterday, we’ve reported that Android Oreo will be coming to Android Wear smartwatches with a number of improvements and fixes. Until yesterday, we were unaware of what devices are going to be updated.

Today, we are happy to give you a list of devices that will definitely be updated to Android Oreo, and may – or may not receive it in the future.

UPDATE: We have included 4 more watches on the list (Hugo BOSS BOSS Touch, Movado Connect, Tommy Hilfiger 24/7 You, Guess Connect, and Gc Connect). (13/12/2017)

Here is the original list released by Google containing the eligible devices that will certainly receive the update:

  • Fossil Q Venture
  • LG Watch Sport
  • Louis Vuitton Tambour
  • Michael Kors Sofie
  • Montblanc Summit
  • Hugo BOSS BOSS Touch
  • Movado Connect
  • Tommy Hilfiger 24/7 You
  • Guess Connect
  • Gc Connect.

The reasoning behind why many of these smartwatches may, may not receive the update is because many of these companies listed, do not profit much by selling, developing for these devices. Many customers do not upgrade their smartwatches as much as their phones, so that would be a yearly, two year basis – they instead keep them for more than these times – which of course leads to companies not caring more about putting more effort into improving them as it could cost a lot in the long term.

This is understandable from both perspectives: the customer and the manufacturer, but we would have hope to see more devices on the list.

As always, you can always go ahead onto XDA’s website and look for ways to get a custom ROM on your smartwatch.
