Google has announced that Android Wear will soon be updated to bring a number of new features. These include GPS support (use your wearable without needing to lug your phone around too, great if you’re running or cycling) and offline music playback (access music stored on the wearable through Bluetooth headphones).
The update will also include downloadable watch faces allowing users to customise their watch, these will become available in Google Play. The Sony SmartWatch 3 will be able to take advantage of this update, particularly as it includes a GPS sensor. This new Android Wear update will land before the year is out.
