Alongside Android 8.1’s release to Pixel and Nexus devices earlier this week, Oreo is today rolling out to Android Wear. Back in October, Google announced a beta program for the LG Watch Sport and now the wearable is one of the first devices to receive the update.

According to a Google developer advocate in the Android Wear community on Google+ (via Android Police), the “Android Oreo roll out to Android Wear is starting today.” However, again, “Timing is determined by each watch’s manufacturer.”

There are no major redesigns with Oreo for the wearable platform, but we did spot a number of useful tweaks. There is a new option to disable touch-to-wake called “Touch lock” in Settings that Google positions as being useful in wet conditions.

Google has added the ability to control the strength of vibrations for incoming notifications. Referred to as the “Vibration pattern,” options include Normal, Long, and Double.
