Fossil Android Wear 2.0 update lands for entire Q range

Got a Q Marshal, Wander or Founder? Then get your Wear 2.0 fix right now
Fossil Wear 2.0 update arrives

Good news, Fossil smartwatch owners - Android Wear 2.0 is here for your smartwatch.

The Wear trio - the Fossil Q Founder, Q Marshal and Q Wander - are all getting the 2.0 goodies now - but there's no word on the Michael Kors Access duo just yet (a Fossil watch brand, don't forget).

We've downloaded the software onto our Q Marshal - although we weren't prompted on the watch itself; instead we kind of forced it by clicking the 'Software Update' option within the 'About' menu in the settings. (Update: Actually, the download failed - we'll update when we get it working - we've asked Fossil for clarification.)

Fossil is the first out of the blocks in getting its smartwatches updated to Wear 2.0. Plenty of other are going to follow though.

Asus has stated that the ZenWatch 2 and 3 will get their Android Wear 2.0 updates in Q2 of 2017. Polar has confirmed that the M600 2.0 update is arriving in the spring, alongside some nifty new swim tracking features.

Tag Heuer and Huawei will update their original watches by the end of March and Nixon's The Mission upgrade is imminent too.

Android Wear 2.0 launched in February, first appearing on the new LG Watch Sport and Style. The updated OS brings a whole host of new features including standalone apps and improved fitness tracking.

    Photos or it didn't happen.

    That's great news!  Any chance you could post pictures of your Q Marshal running AW2.0 along with the version and build numbers?  Can you provide your first impressions of AW2.0 running on that watch?  How did the update process go?  How long did it take?  Thanks!

    Does the upgrade include 1st Gen Q watch?

  • spmcc says:

    Yeah, I'd also like to know if it includes 1st gen. I bought my Founder last July and will be seriously unhappy if they're not included. I've contacted Fossil to ask, but no response yet which I'm trying not to take as an omen...

  • spmcc says:

    I've had a message from Fossil to say Gen 1 are getting the update on 23/03 :-)
