Update: Motorola has officially announced the update on its blog, and you can find videos below.

The Moto 360 update to Android Wear 5.1.1 is starting today, according to Google’s Wayne Piekarski on Google+:

Just to let you all know, the latest version of Android Wear is going to start rolling out via an over-the-air (OTA) update to the Moto 360 today! OTA rollouts are always done over a period of many days, so it will take some time to receive your update.

We told you on June 4th that Motorola was still working on the update because performance just wasn’t quite up to speed.

As per the Motorola blog:

With Google beginning to roll out new Android Wear software for your Moto 360 starting today, you’ll soon be able to access apps and contacts quicker, receive heads-up notifications when you’re using another app, and worry less about your battery for continuously running apps. We’re also adding some new Moto Body features that will make it even easier to make Moto 360 a part of your daily life.

Here are some videos showing Android 5.1.1 in action on the Moto 360:
