One of the main highlights at Google I/O past year was the announcement of Android Wear 2.0.
Fossil is now on Twitter telling anyone who will listen that it's in the process of pushing Android Wear 2.0 to its watches.
We mentioned this yesterday and as promised, this big update to the wearable OS will bring more third-party apps, user-friendly notifications and messaging, and customizable dials to the Fossil Q Marshal, Q Founder 2.0, and Q Wander. This new version brings a number of standalone apps and features to a supported smartwatch.
Fossil, one of the fashion brands that manufactures smartwatches, may have been a little late to introducing Android Wears. Today, Fossil confirmed the Android Wear 2.0 rollout is well underway and that a wider push will start on March 15. That includes the Q Founder, Q Marshal, and Q Wander.
The Android Wear 2.0 update is not flawless, though. You can track your walks, runs, strength training, and bike rides among others.
Android Wear 2.0 features a new design from top to bottom including a more user-friendly navigation experience. However, reviews show that it's one of the best and fastest out in the market especially with the Android Wear 2.0 upgrade.
The user interface is now darker which makes it easier for the user to read and improves battery life.
Google tends to take a slow-and-steady approach to selling phone-adjacent products in its e-commerce store outside of the U.S. While the LG Watch Sport and Watch Style went on sale in early February in the United States, their expansion has been slow - until now.
