Those patiently awaiting Google’s second iteration of Android Wear will have to wait just a little longer. The company says that the general availability of Android Wear 2.0 is being held back by a software bug it’s working to fix. As it stands today, the company’s two LG-made smartwatches, the Watch Sport and Watch Style, have the update along with a few new third-party models that received the update just yesterday.

For the rest of the Android Wear-using world, the update is still having its kinks ironed out. In a statement given to 9to5Google, the company said, “We have started rolling out the Android Wear 2.0 update to Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 and Tag Heuer Connected. For other devices, the update is currently being delayed due to a bug found in final testing. We will push the update to the remaining devices as soon as the issue is resolved.” To see if your smartwatch model will get Android Wear 2.0 when Google does finally push it out to the wider public, check out 9to5Google’s list.
