swipe down from the top and it should show you and many watch faces also show this.

Got my watch today..

First run through of the battery which was 100% out of the box, ran it for 3-4 hours with battery at 100%, then lost 1% per second until it went flat..

Anyone else experience this?

I haven't seen that behaviour on my watch. It starts dropping once I take it off charge, but very slowly and steadily. It came off charge at 730am this morning and is still at 52% as I type this (1015pm).

Roll out of 5.0.2 for Wear is rolling out now.

You watch should tell you when its ready to install, it has fixes for app crashing when they start up and google fit

Roll outs for wear normally take a week or 2 to get to everyone. You can manually check if you go into settings/about then check for updates.

Build numbers are LWX49k, moto 360 get lwx49L

You can wait for the Wear app to tell you the update is ready but last time it was possible to speed the process up by forgetting the device and resetting it then checking for updates via settings on the watch. Had to do it a couple of times on my SW3 to get 5W. The good thing about the updates is because all Wear devices are sort of equal and there is no service provider to get in the road they can be rolled out relatively quickly.

I got the 5.0.2 straight away yesterday as soon as I checked fresh out of box.

It's certainly better than the software before it (not sure what version number)

Still ploughing through the many watch faces floating around the web. 

Had a quick look at Watchmaker last night. 

So more freedom than with the original Samsung Gear




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I got a G W R yesterday, bought it from a fellow forum member who found they couldn't use it, and offered it to me! Almost my first step yesterday when my watch arrived was to update also - had no idea that it was a brand new version lol

Mine are all cricket scores, and I don't even watch cricket!  But I get to brag to my friend who only has a nokia candy bar, that even my watch gets the cricket scores

I am pretty impressed with Google Now (not necessarily related with this watch). I started playing touch rugby at a different module this year, and after a month or so of driving over to these fields every Thurs around 6pm I started getting a Google Now card popping up around Thurs lunchtime saying 'Time to Xxx Park 24 mins with 2 mins delays due to roadworks'.

A little concerning that Google can obviously track trends in my movements, but useful all the same ;).
