[Deal Alert] Casio WSD-F10 Android Wear watch down to $250 on Amazon ($149 off)

Outdoor-friendly Android Wear watches are a special breed and the sexily named Casio WSD-F10 is one of the species' rare specimens. Its announcement price of $500 didn't help it garner the hearts of many in the active community, and even though a few months later it dropped to $400, it was still hard to stomach.

Over the past months, we've seen some deals on it bringing it to $330 then $317, but none as appealing as today's Amazon Deal of the Day. The WSD-F10 is down to $249.99, $149 off its current MSRP and half price from its original MSRP.

[Update: July 11th for the ZW3, later for ZW2] Android Wear 2.0 delayed again for the ZenWatch 2 & 3, release date unknown

When Google listed all of the watches that would receive Android 2.0, I was surprised. I only expected a handful of wearables to make the jump, but nearly all of them (besides the earliest models) were marked as compatible. Unfortunately, it's taking a while to deliver on that promise; fast forward five months later, and a few models are still waiting on an update.

Timecraft is a cool Minecraft-inspired Android Wear watch face by Tha PHLASH

What's time but a series of building blocks of infinitesimally small moments? You change one block and the whole structure could be modified, you add and add and add more blocks, hoping the final result is beautiful and meaningful, and you look around at others' structures learning from them and sometimes envying or criticizing them. That's one philosophical way of introducing this new watch face by Tha PHLASH, Timecraft.

Like its name and all of the screenshots here suggest, Timecraft is inspired by Minecraft. The signature blocky design is there, the green and grey/brown colors are present as well, and although I've never actively played the game or got lost in its world, I can easily spot the similarities based on what little I've seen from it.

We've all been there. You're deep in the woods, maybe fist-fighting bears, maybe live-acting Minecraft, perhaps even escaping Shia LaBeouf. But, in the middle of things, your phone starts to buzz away in your pocket. Wouldn't it be way more convenient to just take a glance at the outdoor-optimized, 50m water-resistant, Android Wear 2.0 Casio WSD-F10 strapped to your wrist, rather than risk pulling your phone out of your pocket? Not only is that the better option, today you can pick one up at Amazon for just $330.

[It's about time] Android Wear 2.0 is now rolling out to the 2nd-generation Moto 360

Android Wear 2.0 hasn't been as fast of a rollout as everyone had hoped, to put it mildly. The first watches to ship with the update were LG's Watch Style and Watch Sport, but existing watches have had to wait anywhere from a few weeks to several months for the update.

[Update: Nope, ASUS messed up] Android Wear 2.0 is now rolling out to the ZenWatch 3

Android Wear 2.0 was officially released in February, but many watches are still waiting on an official update. The ZenWatch 2 and 3 were confirmed to get the new version (the original ZenWatch was left out), but last we heard, it would come sometime in Q2 2017. Now the rollout seems to be in full swing, at least for the ZenWatch 3.

Huawei Watch, Moto 360 Gen 2, and other watches should get Android Wear 2.0 by end of April or late May

We're impatiently waiting for Android Wear 2.0 to roll to some of the most popular watches released: the second generation Moto 360 and the Huawei Watch. There are also other watches that still haven't received the update and weeks are passing by quickly without a hint of when exactly we should expect the new firmware to hit.

Android Wear support forums' community manager Ernest has posted an update a few hours ago explaining the situation with the different Wear watches and their update timelines. He reiterated the watches that have already received the update, but most importantly, he said that the remaining models should receive their updates by end of April or late May.

Google's Handwriting Keyboard for Android Wear 2.0 is now available on the Play Store

Google debuted Android Wear 2.0 at Google I/O last year with a number of great new features, not least of which was a clever spin on the handwriting keyboard. Oddly, the handwriting keyboard was left buried in a hard to find location and had to be activated just to use it. Now that the official Wear 2.0 release is rolling out (kinda), users have reported that this keyboard didn't even come preinstalled, nor could it be found on the Play Store – at least, not until yesterday. The Handwriting Keyboard is now available.
