I got an update to mwd49b this evening. All I could find was some info for the Moto 360. Anyone know of any change logs? Looks like maybe just a security update.

Before update, try to flash stock recovery.
lol am rooted so if it follows the same as it does on ANY OTHER android device it would fail.... AM not undoing all your hardwork on you rom and kernel justs for this...

My statement was that if he is rooted I VERY much DOUBT it would have updated so he is most likely on stock recovery and rom plus unrooted..

I've received the update tonight.
Since last 6.0.1 update, I've problems with battery duration(difficulties to end full day) and GPS accuracy (buggy and lot of signal losts...). factory reset, wipe cache, etc... doesn't fix the problems.

With this new update, battery seems to last more time, 10% drain in 4 hours with screen always on, wifi on, etc..
Tonight I'll check If GPS problems where fixed, but sounds very good :)

I have just updated my SWR50 via Xperia Companion.

- I can confirm that the Reboot option is back.
- Camera bridge application is working again, so if I launch the Xperia Camera on the phone I can take photos with the button on the watch. (it was broken in the first MM release)
- Incoming phone call notification still has a delay but it seems faster than the previous release, however it is not as fast as it was in the last Lollipop. (the contact details of the caller appears after a few rings)

I got the update early yesterday here in Poland. When I got up in the morning the watch already had the notification about the update.
After applying it, the watch feels a little bit smoother and the battery is definitely better. I don't know anything about GPS, I've never used it, it's disabled. Reboot option is back, as was already told.
