From what I have seen on the web is that it will be pushed out by Google - so within the week (hopefully!) These new watchfaces are a major reason why I wanted a smartwatch in the first place! They look awesome!

One of the things that concerned me buying a Sony Smartwatch 3, Sony getting their hooks into this.
Update better come fast or this is the last Sony Smartwatch I buy.

I read reviews at Google Play, it is truly amazing how many people are giving developers 1 out 5.... watch face on phone but not on watch.
They do not have the latest Android Wear firmware :(

    Since I'm a new user, I cannot post entire links. Here's the relevant part of the OTA url, though:
    ota/sony_tetra_tetra/b4662a25a7416561cf0159a5b756be0e0c037f68.signed-tetra-LWX48P-from-KNX01V.b4662a25.zip
    You can reconstruct the rest

    Everyone who hasn't got OTA and can't wait to update,

    First, Download OTA link (Special thanks to rvirga & xXAndyXx)

    Second, Root your SmartWatch 3

    Then, do the following commends via adb [NOT IN RECOVERY] (Courtesy of Smalink from AP comment)
    Code:
    # adb push Your-SW3-OTA.zip /sdcard/update.zip
    # adb shell
    # su
    # cp /sdcard/update.zip /cache/update.zip
    # echo 'boot-recovery ' > /cache/recovery/command
    # echo '--update_package=/cache/update.zip' >> /cache/recovery/command
    # reboot recovery

    It will reboot and update.
    I did the same and my SW3 is now on Lollipop.

    Right now!
    Czech republic, nothing did, just arrived new system.
    Disappointment: theatre mode on SW3 is totally dimmed, why when the display doesn't shine...?

    Another way to be in a theater would be "airplane mode" and in wear app in phone uncheck "tilt to light screen" (or something similar).

    this combination at least keeps the time visible and no notification or movement will ligth the watch.
