Android Wear update delivers WiFi support, always-on apps, and more | Pocketnow. In the next few weeks, Android Wear is delivering a game changing update to Android Wear Smart Watches. Unless you have a Gear S or other phone enabled watch, your watch is only connected to the Smart Phone when within Bluetooth range. This means that you can't walk more than 30 feet away without losing the connection. The update delivers WiFi support, which means you can stay connected anywhere you are withing a WiFi signal. Changes everything. Before you buy an Apple Watch, ask if it supports WiFi connections.
