Updating system software

Your Polar M600 is powered by Wear OS by Google. You'll get an automatic notification to your M600 if there's a new Wear OS by Google system update available. The update will download to your M600 when your smartwatch is plugged in to charge and connected to your phone via Bluetooth when your phone has an Internet connection.


You can also check for an available Wear OS by Google software update manually from you smartwatch.

To manually check for an update

  1. Navigate to the Settings app, and find and tap System.
  2. Tap About.
  3. Scroll the list down to find and tap System updates.

The M600 will either tell you that "System is up to date" or "System update available". If there's a new update available, the download will start when your smartwatch is plugged in to charge and connected to your phone via Bluetooth when your phone has an Internet connection.


To install the software update

Once the system update has been downloaded to your M600, you'll receive a notification that the update is ready to be installed.

  1. Tap the notification.
  2. Tap the check mark to start the installation.

Your smartwatch will reboot and the Android system will be updated.
