Just now my watch ask to update. The build version is KGW42R. Update took 30 seconds and lost 3% after the update. I wonder what the improvements were.

No update for me so far. I hope they add the ability to have the screen off while charging and to bring up cards at will.

The only way I can get it to turn off is by using the android wear app method.

Put on charger
In Android wear app go to settings
Check mark the always on setting
Wait for 360 to dim
Then un-check
Screen should turn off while charging

Well once you take it off the charger it lights up and when you place it back, it sometimes doesn't turn off. I usually hit the crown once on the charger to wake it, then again to dim and then it would turn off 9 out of 10 times.

Only thing I notice so far is that the white charging light indicator finally turns off when the watch taken off.

Here is the only change I can find:
Old Android Wear Build: 1.0.1.1387258
New Android Wear Build: 1.0.1.1448224
The Google Play Services did not change.

I never got a notice but my build number is also KGW42R,

But my software version is 4.4W.1 and I think that's what everyone uses for update reference.

Worked for me thanks! Better than having the screen on all the time.

I got the update as well. Heard about someone getting an update, I checked mine for one, didn't see anything, exited out of settings and got the alert. Can't see any differences so far though.

Update is Looking Good

Did get the update today. I was having at least 6-7 BT disconnects a day with my Galaxy S4...I've had none in the last 3 hours...keeping my fingers crossed. I've also noticed that the watch is markedly more responsive to the wrist motion to turn it on when adaptive display is turned off.

Disappointment was starting to creep in, but this is looking good.

    Alright guys, we get it.. Better battery life reported by many.. No need for another 97 posts letting us know you still have 45% at the end of the day after heavy use..
    This isn't just better, this is double the battery life!

    Very happy that with the update I can tap the side button while the 360 is charging and it turns the screen completely off. Tapping it a second time will turn it back on to the charging screen.

    Just reset watch and still no update. I guess I'll just have to be patient


    I reset the watch, and went through the setup, got no update.

    Try uninstalling the wear app, resetting watch, then setup both again. Worked for me.
