Google has pushed out the new Android Wear update in the Play Store that prepares for WiFi future support of Wi-Fi in Android Wear devices. Version 188.8.131.525466 also fixes up a few additional bugs. The thing is, not all Android Wear devices will be able to use Wi-Fi. It’s is unfortunate, but these were first gen Android Wear watches and not everyone, including company’s, knew the potential of these devices.
The new Google Play services revision is the bridge to you’re upcoming Wear devices unless you are an owner of The LG G Watch, LG G Watch R, or the ASUS ZenWatch. Although Android Wear never advertised Wi-Fi support in the beginning, we all were never aware of the possibilities. The most some users will be is disappointed as these devices were not built with a Wi-Fi antenna. That’s just one of the perks of being an owner of a first generation device. Think of it relating to other products such as the first generation of Android phones (ick).
For those of you who are now jumping into the smart wearable scene with Android Wear, consider if you really want to use the upcoming Wi-Fi functionality. If you don’t care for it, then hop on deals like the latest LG G Watch discount because retailers are making way for newer devices. If it suits your purpose, go ahead and pick one up!
