While Android Wear 2.0 has been available from Google for a couple of weeks now, device makers seem to be taking their sweet time in rolling out the update. Not that having to wait surprises us as Android users, but this week, Fossil and ASUS have at least updated users on their rollout intentions via Twitter. (more…)
Fossil is currently hosting a 25% off sale for all of their Android Wear watches, the Q Founder, Q Wander, and Q Marshal, all of which are scheduled to receive the update to Android Wear 2.0 in the near future. At 25% off, you are looking at smartwatches for as little as $123. That’s, um, pretty nuts.
The Q Founder 1.0 is actually on sale right now, but Fossil is including sale items in the 25% off discount, and that’s why you can get one for barely $120. If you want a newer watch, though, the Founder 2.0, Q Wander, and Q Marshal are all 25% off and as low as $206. If you ever wanted to get in on the smartwatch thing, discounts like these are the ones to jump on so that you aren’t too heavily invested if you decide this life ain’t for you. (more…)
If you own an Amazon Alexa-equipped device, like an Echo or the new Echo Dot, and have been eyeing an Android Wear watch like the Fossil Q Founder, today is your day. Amazon is hosting a daily deal for the $295 Q Founder with a stainless steel bracelet where you can buy one through Alexa for 35% off. At 35% off, you can have one shipped to you for just $191.75. That’s a $103.25 discount.
To get the deal, you just say to Alexa, “Hey, Alexa, buy the Fossil Q Founder stainless steel smartwatch.” She will then take you through the steps and confirm which version you want and if you want to buy it. (more…)
