Technology is constantly changing as time passes and the lovers of tech are always on the lookout for new exciting devices. The Fossil group ventured into production of wearables a while back and finally revealed their latest devices recently on 15th March 2016. The new devices are improved versions of Fossil’s previous products with better features. In total, the items were seven with their two Android smart watches topping the list of wearables, four analogue watches and one activity tracking bracelet. The watches have a circular body and the bracelet looks just like any other bracelet.
The Android smart watches are the Q Marshal and the multi-finished Q Wander. They are considered the most impressive of the watches because of their wireless charging, are scratch resistant and can both be found in either 46mm or 44mm round cases. To top it all the watches have interchangeable straps and body which you can change according to your taste or preference, an option available for both Android watches. The Q marshal and Q Wander are much smaller and conveniently slimmer than previous wearables made by Fossil. They are compatible through Bluetooth to iOS 8.2+ and Android 4.4+ and currently available at 275 dollars.
The other four watches are also relatively exceptional. Fossil developed these analogue watches as part of the Q Grant series. They are not too different from the earlier versions, but improvements have been made to distinguish them. The watches automatically update the time zone and come equipped with activity tracking option. The price for the analogue watches has not gone public yet, but it will happen soon. Fossil is determined to keep up with time and trends so as to offer products that are up to date. This is clearly portrayed by the Q Motion bracelet trackers, they not only track activity but also receive notifications on texts or calls. The bracelet is connected to the phone to keep track of movements and sleep. It has a long battery life where recharge is done after six months. Lastly, it is resistant to water for up to 50 meters and currently being sold for 95 dollars.
When the watches were are designed and developed, it is evident a lot of work was put into the technical and technological aspect. Furthermore, they considered the style and the outward appearance of the wearables. These twos were successfully combined to produce watches that up to date on technology and also stylish. These are two features that customers who love tech and like to look good can appreciate.
Fossil also announced that their next edition of wearables will be from major brands including Diesel, Michael Kors, Misfit, Kate Spade and Emporio Armani. These wearables will be 100, available in 40 countries, 20 different languages and have unique features and apps. The idea is to produce more designs to suit the choices of many people and offer customers a wide range of options. The wearables are surely something to look forward to.
