After the release of Android Oreo 8.1, Google has finally turned its attention to Android Wear. The Big G began pushing out Android Oreo to Android Wear devices last week, after the update spent the briefest of times in beta testing.

But is your smartwatch on the list of supported Android Wear devices? Android Police got its hands on a master list of products that will be getting the update. They are as follows:

  • Fossil Q Venture (launch)
  • LG Watch Sport (review)
  • Louis Vuitton Tambour (launch)
  • Michael Kors Sofie (review)
  • Montblanc Summit (launch)

Android Oreo for Android Wear adds in better notifications and limits background activity in order to bolster battery life. Android Oreo also features a Battery Saver feature, which can be toggled on in settings.

All devices running Android Oreo will also benefit from double-tap-to-wake, as well as seven new countries/languages. The main event, however, is optimisations for battery life, though things like being able to augment the length of vibration for notifications will also come in handy for some.

Android Oreo is also expected to hit the following Android Wear devices:

  • Casio PRO TREK Smart WSD-F20 (launch)
  • Casio WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch (launch)
  • Diesel Full Guard (launch)
  • Emporio Armani Connected (launch)
  • Fossil Q Control (launch)
  • Fossil Q Explorist (launch)
  • Fossil Q Founder 2.0 (launch)
  • Fossil Q Marshal (launch)
  • Fossil Q Wander (launch)
  • Gc Connect
  • Guess Connect (launch)
  • Huawei Watch 2 (review)
  • Hugo BOSS BOSS Touch (launch)
  • LG Watch Style (review)
  • Michael Kors Access Bradshaw (launch)
  • Michael Kors Access Dylan (launch)
  • Michael Kors Access Grayson (review)
  • Misfit Vapor (launch)
  • Mobvoi Ticwatch S & E (launch)
  • Movado Connect (launch)
  • Nixon Mission (launch)
  • Polar M600 (launch)
  • TAG Heuer Tag Connected Modular 45 (launch)
  • Tommy Hilfiger 24/7 You (launch)
  • ZTE Quartz (review)

Can’t see yours? You might be running an older Snapdragon 400-powered Android Wear watch and, based on these two lists, it appears that those models are not getting the Android Oreo update. At least via official channels, anyway.
