The Android Wear 5.1.1 update for smartwatches was announced way back in April. However, users of the Motorola Moto 360 were complaining that Motorola takes too long to provide them with the much needed update.

In a recent tweet, Motorola Mobility team responded to a Moto 360 owner that the update is still not ready for public release due to some performance issues. According to Android Authority, the team did not cite any specific reason as what causes the delay.

The delay in releasing the update has no doubt caused a lot of frustration to Moto 360 users especially the fact that most smartwatches in the market have all received the Android Wear 5.1.1 update. Despite the delay, some Moto 360 owners were pleased to know that Motorola is closely working with Google in order to release the update as fast as they can.

According to Phandroid, one of the reasons why Moto 360 is experiencing performance issues is because of Motorola's decision to integrate it with the highly underpowered TI OMAP 3 processor. Motorola said that they held back the release of Android Wear 5.1.1 in order to fix and patch all the performance issue that might come out once the update is released to the public.

The Android Wear 5.1.1 is by far the most crucial update released by Google. The update bring Wi-Fi support for smart wearable that has built-in Wi-Fi capabilities. This allow compatible devices to receive phone notifications on their smartwatches, provided that both devices are connected to a Wi-Fi network.

The Moto 360 was announced announced in March 2014 and was officially released in September of the same year.
