I'm looking forward to being able to select things using a gesture, and the speaker.

Yup, I reset mine a few times on the weekend and got the update on about the 3rd or 4th try.

 

The speaker is surprisingly good and the overall experience of the device is much smoother and less laggy.

 

Battery life also seems to be improved, I have an extra 10-15% left at the end of the day over the last version.

 

Gestures work pretty well, I especially like the way the screen dims now when you turn it away from you.

Was that a factory reset? or just restarting?

 

 

 

 

 

Cheers

Factory reset. Supposedly it changes your device ID in google services so you may end up in a different block of the roll out.

 

 

 

I used the 'check for updates' option in the menu after each reset.

I can't wait for this! Who ever new there was even a speaker haha!

 

Apparently the roll-out will be complete by the 10th of March so I'm going to hold off on factory reset until then if I haven't got it.

Ive been waiting for this also, but I have just checked my watch it is already 1.4 Build MEC23L - I received this update a month ago? Can someone confirm if this is the latest?

Yes, that is the same version mine updated to over the weekend.

 

 

 

I think there was a very limited rollout a while ago as a test?

I'm having the same issue, I make a call from the watch and it uses my phone instead.

 

Do I have to be a certain distance from the phone or something?
