Which Android watches will be updated for WiFi support?

The next update for Android Wear will be a good one - instead of connecting to your phone by bluetooth, it will connect over WiFi. You can even leave your phone behind and the watch will connect to it if you are somewhere with a WiFi hotspot. This may be enough for me to give them a try, but I want to be able to use this update. Will it work with all existing Android watches?
As far as I know, all Android Wear watches will get the WiFi support updates EXCEPT the LG G watch. Kind of a bummer for all those early adopters that picked one up, but that's the way it goes.

Turns out that there are a few others that don't have WiFi antenna, so the update won't work for them either. In addition to the LG G watch, the G Watch R and Asus ZenWatch are a no-go.
