Six more smartwatches are now receiving Android Wear 2.0

Just the other day, we told you that Google had finally commented on the delay in rolling out Android Wear 2.0. Originally expected to be disseminated in February, only a trio of watches received it when a bug forced Google to apply the breaks to the update. The three that were updated were the Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 and the Tag Heuer Connected. At the time, Google said that it would resume pushing out the update when everything was copacetic.

Well, it seems that everything is A-OK, and six additional smartwatches are now receiving Android Wear 2.0. Those models are the Polar M600, Fossil Q Wander, Fossil Q Marshal, Nixon Mission, Michael Cors Access Dylan, and the Michael Cors Access Bradshaw. A total of 19 will end up with Android Wear 2.0, which means that there are ten more timepieces to go.

The update allows you to add information from apps to the always-on watch face on your device. A tap on the screen will open your favorite apps, and you can download them from the on-watch Google Play Store. Google Fit will allow you to track your pace, distance, calories burned, and heart rate whether you are cycling, walking or running. And you can challenge yourself to set new personal records for sit-ups, push-ups, squats, and weightlifting. Google Assistant becomes available on your wearable with the update, and you can reply to messages right from your timepiece. Responses can be made by swiping on a keyboard or by writing letters out by hand. Smart Reply will give you a quick pre-written response to use based on the message you received.

If you own the six watches now receiving the Android Wear 2.0 update, keep your eyes peeled for the notification that it has arrived.

I think the huawei watch should be the main watch to receive Android 2.0 since is the most popular Android wear watch out there.

Those watches are the ones that no one bought. How about some serious ones, like the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE ?

I love the social aspect of STRAVA to compete with other cyclists! I get on the bike; my headset on, agm x1 (a phone that endurance falls, water, aaaalll) some water … and I lose a few hours in the road ♥
