Just got it on OTA no real impression yet I'll have to play a bit with it, It does take a long time to boot after the upgrade and the battery did drain a bit.

Flashed the OTA, but unfortunately the Handwriting Input is missing and "Ok, Google" Detection is not working although it's activated in the menu :(

works for me.

tilt hand -> screen activates -> ok google -> watch vibrates -> assistant starts

Is it just me or is the watch really laggy now? There's always a one or two second delay before things happen.

for me it was also quite laggy, after a while everything settles and gets smooth.

for example the menu is super smooth compared to before.

Same here, plus charging is very slow and the battery drains super quick. This despite a complete reset after upgrading. Bound to be initial bugs, but the battery issue is a bit of a worry.

ok. handwriting is not available for me too, regardless ok google works.

while at first it was really draining battery and sluggish, performance increased after about an hour or so. being on wear2.0 the second day now, everything settled anf feels butter smooth. while on the first day i saw battery got decreased 10 % more than usual, will have to investigate how that will turn out today, but obviously with a new system some might use the watch a bit more active for the time being to figure things out.

"OK google" and handwriting input are both now working for me. Maybe it was still downloading English UK language packs in the background? Also, to extend battery life, I've disabled "Always-on display" - Had a predicted use time of just 2 hours with this enabled (I easily got through 1-2 days before the update), so had little choice but to disable it.

I have noticed a messaging bug too... I open Contacts app, select a person, select a number to message (e.g. "mobile" or "home")... Then, instead of it asking me for the message, Assistant asks me "Which number?" I'd like to message, despite already confirming that with the previous tap... I say the number ("mobile" or "home") and it enters that word as the actual message itself... So the labelling "Which number?" should actually be "Message?" - the flow is somehow out of sync - if that makes sense!

Update: So, before the 2.0 update, I'd get 1-2 days of use between charges, with display always-on enabled... After the 2.0 update, I'm getting 4-5 hours of use, with display always-on DISABLED... My battery is absolutely being killed by something! Anyone else getting such poor battery performance?

Unfortunately, handwriting keyboard is also missing for me. I've also noticed a majority of the complaints​ others have explained, but I'd like to give things time to Settle in.

Flash AW2 to Urbane 2nd ed?

Has anyone tried flashing the AW2 for the urbane (1st ed) to their urbane 2? I'm considering trying it...not thrilled with prospect of waiting another month for the OTA release. Any thoughts?

After flashing the 2.0, my watch cannot set up google account. After resetting it, it couldn't even sync the apps. Does anyone else have the same problem?

I have same issue. To resolve, you put the button in side of the watch. Go to the parameter, tap on setup google account et finish setting account on the phone.

    android.googleapis.com/packages/ota/lge_bass_bass/9dc72dd4c0f07eea91f85f4a8b1dc57f81d8d9b2.zip

    Edit: This is the OTA file for Urbane 1st gen.

    Step by Step Instructions for those that can't be bothered to look it up:

    1. Download http://android.googleapis.com/packa.../9dc72dd4c0f07eea91f85f4a8b1dc57f81d8d9b2.zip
    then Rename it, to something easy (eg. aw2.zip)

    2. Get ADB- if you don't have it already and in developer mode, USB ADB debugging is on. Also, allow adb Debugging on your phone

    3. Go to your cmd prompt and type the following command adb reboot bootloader

    4. Go to your watch, using the arrows, navigate to Recovery Mode

    5. Swipe up/down to go to apply update from ADB swipe right/left

    6. Go to your cmd prompt and type the following command adb sideload aw2.zip (Replacing aw2.zip with your filename and path - I put my file in my adb directory so the above command worked for me)

    Watch will update, and reboot.

    I am not responsible for any issues you may have. Good Luck

    can confirm, just flashed it via adb sideload *zip* and i am on it.

    takes like 4 minutes to boot up after flashing.

    after boot will have to setup google account and it's sideloading play store as well...
