Android Wear now has GPS and offline music support

by John_A


Google has today published details of a major update it’s currently pushing out to all International variants of the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live and Moto 360 located in the US.

The upgrade primarily focuses on implementing some new fitness functionality into Android Wear by taking full advantage of the smart watches integrated GPS sensors. Users will now be able to track their distance and speed during a run, walk and bike ride, without actually having to have a smartphone connected.

This latest firmware also lets users upload and store music on the physical memory of their device, enabling them to listen to music on a run, walk or ride via a pair of Bluetooth headphones with no active connection required between their smartwatch and phone.
