Update: Android Wear 2.0 now rolling out to Fossil Q Founder, Q Wander and Q Marshal
Have you received the update yet? If so, we'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
Android Wear 2.0 has only been around for a few weeks now, and if you don’t have the LG Watch Sport or Style, you probably haven’t had much experience with it quite yet. Plenty of smartwatch manufacturers have announced plans to upgrade their existing watches to version 2.0, but so far, no OEM has delivered the update. That’s changing very soon.
Just as we expected, Fossil has confirmed that it will begin rolling out Android Wear 2.0 to all its existing watches on Wednesday, March 15 (tomorrow). This news comes in response to a user on Twitter, curious about when the update will arrive for the Q Founder. Even though it isn’t stated in the tweet below, Fossil has previously confirmed that all Fossil Android Wear watches will get the update in mid-March. That means the Fossil Q Founder, Q Marshal and Q Wander.

In addition to the Fossil rollout, the TAG Heuer Connected – that $1,500 Android Wear watch that launched in 2015 – is also getting the 2.0 treatment before the end of March. That’s just two weeks away.

It’s worth noting that this is the original Connected smartwatch we’re talking about here, not the new Connected Modular. That new luxury smartwatch already runs Android Wear 2.0 out of the box.
So what does Android Wear 2.0 bring to the table? Most notably, version 2.0 brings Google Assistant, standalone watch applications, a much better version of Google Fit, smarter watch faces with complications and more.
