What the hell have you done to this in the 2.0 update?!? Initially I thought it looked better by I no longer get notified for sms messages, only messenger and whatsapp, and only sporadically it seems. The hand gestures have gone, suddenly we need to use the button a lot more, when are you going to patch this up so that it works again? The watch is almost pointless now!
Until the 2.0 Update my LG Urbane v1 was working better with each new update. After 2.0 no more hands free voice control. That is why I bought the watch I use this feature for my work and that is place I use my watch the most. i also used it in the car for voice calls and to launch Pandora or get directions. Now I have to push and hold the button to use voice commands. Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of using voice commands? And Everytime I try a voice command I get a message saying "oops I can't do that right now". Please fix and bring back "hands free" voice commands. My phone is a Note 4 and I have tried my S5 same issues on both phones.
New version does not allow loading of existing or new wachfaces. I have spent hours resetting both the watch over and over again and my phone too. I have to give up. Unacceptable... Update: Google 2nd level support told me to contact Samsung (phone) or LG (watch). Neither of course has support. In addition I no longer get sms notifications? Any way to get back to 1.0?
AW 2.0 broke one handed operation. Both the in/out gestures were removed AND worst of all it forces you to click send on a reply. No longer can I use while driving or running as it would require me to take hands off wheel or stop and put down water bottle. Please enable auto-send or a "send"/ok gesture!
The update completely changed the user interface. Instead of swiping to get the apps, you need to press the button now. Swiping allows you to change the watch face. Thanks, as if I want to do this all the time! Everything appears so much more complicated. A pain to get the installed Wear apps back onto the watch. Took .e long time to figure this out how to do this. Also needs a google account now :-( The watch is so difficult to use now, I wish this update would not have come.
It is stunning beyond all logical comprehension that the Wear team don't make "Notification Indicator" a global AW2 option, yet changed the way notifications show so if you miss the vibration, you never see the message. Unless you act paranoid by checking by swiping up every 5 minutes of your life. Unbelievable.
