I got the update today, and it works fine on my Ticwatch E.
Hey Hilker, but do you have the dark theme across the watch?
Also, could you please post a photo?

Mine was updated but I don't have the dark theme and my Android OS version it's 7.1.1

Regards.
Here you go.
AWESOME! I can't wait to have it on mine. Looks amazing.

mine is the same with the "dark" theme.. but you are right, its not true black with the pixels off.. if they did this is would definitely improve battery life.

tried to reply.. said it needed to be approved by an admin... as did all my posts.

Mine is also "gray" not pixels off. May be tough to do unless you're on an OLED

But the ticwatch s/e has oled,which you can clearly see if you have a watchface with black background or the Standby version of any watchface.

I believe, for the dark theme, you need both android wear 2.8 AND android oreo running on your watch. Currently, while we've got 2.8, oreo is in the works for Ticwatch e&s and not yet rolled out. Hopefully we'll get it soon. Hope that helps

I had a Moto 360 sport before getting the ticwatch e and my Moto 360 definitely had the dark theme and was on 7.1.1. That watch does have an OLED screen and it showed. I think mobvoi just hasn't updated it on their end. They may have their own type of theming that doesn't really show. Hopefully they incorporate it into the next update. I'd love to see that added in. They oreo update was the biggest reason for me getting this watch.
