Motorola is Preparing Android 5.0.1 Update for Moto 360

Motorola Moto 360

The official Motorola forum has recently published a detailed list from the company about the changelog of Android 5.0.1 for the Motorola Moto 360. The device is supposedly to arrive on December 15th, but it appears that the actual roll out date has been delayed somewhat. Instead, a much smaller update is being deployed to Moto 360 users.

Apparently, the release of the major update has been delayed due to the newly discovered bugs. At the time being, Motorola is still attempting to squash the remaining glitches as they start to crop up. The real culprit of the delay is probably the offset layout of the watch face and it’s tough to tell when the update would arrive.

The company has confirmed that the update will arrive soon, but there’s no definite release date. The Android 5.0.1 itself is an incremental update released by Google to fix various bugs. However, implementing the update for a small-sized device like smartwatch would require significant changes in layout and other areas. The use of ART core, instead of the Dalvik VM allows improved performance for low-power devices. When the update is released, users could get improved performance and battery life.
