Update: We’ve now gone hands-on with the new Android Wear 2.0 platform – check out the updates to the platform that we’ve tried out!

Android Wear 2.0 is the first ‘big’ update to the wearable platform from the search giant since its creation in 2014 – but don’t get super-excited, as it’s only covering three main areas.

There are some changes to the watch faces, additions to the messaging platforms and slight overhauls in the fitness area too.

Oh, and there are some updates to the connectivity – so have a look below to see everything that Google announced…

With Android Wear 2.0 you’re now able to customise any of the watch faces out there with complications from your favorite Android Wear apps.

That means if you’ve got a fancy-looking analogue face, you can add in small widgets to tell you what’s coming up on your calendar, stock info and notes on what’s next from your to-do list.
