Motorola and LG have said their first-generation Android Wear smartwatches won’t be updated to the newest version of the wearable platform from Google.

Both companies recently shared the news via their official Twitter accounts. The two wearables were first announced in 2014 and were among the first wave of smartwatches to run Android Wear.

Motorola and LG did update the wearables to Android Wear 1.2 in 2015, but it appears that’s as far as they will go.

Moreover, LG says it has discontinued the LG G Watch in favor of newer models. Android Wear 2.0 adds a number of features and requires fresh hardware for WiFi and cellular connectivity.

Android Wear 2.0 is available to developers, but won’t be released to the general public until later this year
