One of Android Wear 5.1’s key new features is the ability to connect smartwatches to Wi-Fi networks directly. This lets them receive notifications and sync actions even if your phone isn’t nearby, as long as both maintain active connections to the Internet. The thing is, this feature doesn’t automatically kick in with the 5.1 update (or 5.1.1, though it should for the Moto 360, Sony Smartwatch 3, and Samsung Gear Live).
