Fossil Q Launched Locally, Boasting New Hybrid and Touchscreen Smartwatches!

Fossil isn’t a brand you would normally think of when it comes to hi-tech wearables, so it certainly came as a surprise to me that they already have 20 smartwatches and fitness trackers under their Q lineup. Among the most recent additions are 4 new hybrid watches that resemble traditional watches while still giving you many of the smartwatch features you’ve come to expect. Pictured below are the Q Nate and Q Tailor, although also launched were the Q Crewmaster and Q Gazer.


The great thing about hybrids is they blend analog design with smart connectivity and also benefits from 6 months of battery life, something that touchscreen watches typically can’t even compete against.

  • Activity tracking
  • Sleep monitoring
  • Custom goal setting

Of course, they also launched touchscreen smartwatches as well. These ran on Android Wear and were powered by Snapdragon 2100 processors designed specifically for wearables.
