At this point it is two days past the 100% rollout date and I have yet to receive a prompt on my watch to upgrade (Ticwatch E). I have done a check for update in the settings while hooked to wifi. It shows that it is up to date. Any ideas if they have paused the rollout or how to force the update?

All fine here since updates, seems very snappy and I haven't had any reboots.

Don't like the green theme though, where on earth is the black theme?

Received the update last night. Haven't noticed any strange behavior, working accordingly so far!
Would have liked the black theme instead of the green/grey-ish in the menu's. After a couple of hours use today the battery is at 91%, as before.
I believe if you go into Play Store and uninstall the Wear OS by Google app update and then reinstall it, you should get black background menus.
This doesn't work!
It gets green/grey after reinstall.
Is it an wear os thing that doesn't work since it's black before install?
Hope it will be fixed

Please change the theme to pure blacks.

Only good thing I noticed so far with the update: BATTERY LIFE! The watch just lost about 5% in over 10hours! Before it was more like 15% in 10 hours.
Well that sounds impressive. How did you get that? Do you have ambient display and airplane mode on?

I've updated my watch (Tickwatch E) to Oreo a few days ago and I am thinking my experience, till now, may benefit others...

After the update I experienced the following:

1) Unresponsiveness
2) Touch was not always registering (for example, I could press the "button" to set the permission for a watchface)
3) random reboots
4) and finally... very bad battery life!

Issues 1,2 and 3 were resolved after I resetted the watch.

Issue 4 was resolved after I disabled in "Settings" -> "Gestures":

- Tilt-to-Wake
- Wrist gestures

Now the battery life with "Ambient Display" ON seems better than before (2 to 4 hours more...)

Overall, with:

Wifi: ON
Bluetooth: ON
Locations: ON
Ambient Display: ON
Touch-to-Wake: ON

my watch lasts 24 hours (more or less).

I am now checking the battery life with Ambient Display OFF...

I have a black ticwatch e and my wife has the white one. We both got the oreo update and for some reason mine got the black theme while hers is still the green/gray one. Is anyone else having this problem? I've been trying to figure out how to enable the black theme on hers but can't figure it out for the life of me. I even did a factory reset on hers thinking it would fix it but it didn't.
