If your phone isn't on the list is is unlikely that it will receive the update in the future either.
Wear 2.0 includes a new overall interface design, integrated with Google Assistant, which is often considered more advanced than Apple's Siri. It can for instance recognize context, which enables follow-up questions without repeating all the details of initial ones.
Critically, Android watches can make use of LTE, allowing them to operate fully independently of a phone for tasks like messaging, navigation, or streaming music.
Android Wear 2.0 offers Android Pay amongst other things but if your smart watch is paired with a phone that has an unlocked bootloader Android Pay will not work.
