Google came prepared for I/O 2016 and packed the keynote with a few exciting announcements. Many of these, however, like the new Daydream VR platform in Android left us wondering about availability and support. 

The same goes for Android Wear 2.0, which was showcased on stage in an impressive presentation of new features, but we never got word on whether and when we will experience it on our smartwatch. But the question remains: which devices are going to get the update? This is exactly what user konrad-iturbe on Reddit set out to do and the following are his findings thus far:
