If you’re a Fossil Q smartwatch owner, you’re among the lucky Android Wear users. The company announced today that it’s starting to update its smartwatch line to Google’s newest wearable OS: Android Wear 2.0. The rollout starts today with the Fossil Q Wander, Q Marshal, and Q Founder.

With the update, wearers will get the chance to use Google Assistant directly from their watch. They can also respond to texts through their watch’s keyboard, handwriting, or Smart Reply. Both iOS and Android users can more easily integrate third-party watchfaces, too. Check out our Android Wear 2.0 breakdown here because there’s a lot.

Multiple manufacturers have announced new Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch models, including LG. Still, though, many older smartwatch models haven’t been updated to the new OS and never will be; Sony’s SmartWatch 3 and the Samsung Gear Live, for instance, aren’t getting the new Android Wear.
