Okay, you may have noticed that it has been quite a while since the last Android Wear Roundup. The good news is that I am here to take the reins and get this thing going again. Since it has been such a long while, there are quite a few items to go through. This is why I have split the post into two separate pages, as it was way too long for a single page. Rest assured, I will be making sure this Roundup has more of a regular schedule in the future. But hey, enough of that nonsense, let's dig into a super long list of Android Wear apps and faces!

Android Wear 2.0 is rolling out to the Asus ZenWatch 2 (1.63-inch)

Android Wear 2.0 is rolling out to the Asus ZenWatch 2 (1.63-inch)

Google launched Wear 2.0 many moons ago in early 2017, and here we are in the middle of summer and some watches are still waiting on the update after a series of delays. The ZenWatch 2 is no longer among them... at least the larger version. That watch is getting the Wear 2.0 update as we speak while the small version continues to wait.

It has been about five months since Android Wear 2.0 was released, but a few major watches still don't have the update. The ZenWatch 2 and 3 are two wearables that have waited months for it, and while ZW2 owners will have to keep waiting, it has finally arrived for the ZenWatch 3.

Ticwatch S & E are affordable but stylish Android Wear devices, coming soon from Mobvoi

Ticwatch S & E are affordable but stylish Android Wear devices, coming soon from Mobvoi

It's a bit of a strange time in the smartwatch world right now. The novelty seems to have worn off a little, and while some have really bought into the scene, many remain skeptical (myself included). Android Wear 2.0 was delayed, as was its eventual roll out to compatible devices. At the same time, luxury brands have tried to ignite some interest, with Tag Heuer's $1,500 Connected Modular 45 leading the charge. Just yesterday, Louis Vuitton announced the Tabour Horizon, starting at $2,450. Thankfully, Mobvoi has got us regular folk covered, with two affordable new devices that have just smashed their Kickstarter goal.

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

[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

[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

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.
