It’s been less than half a year since Fossil introduced its Q Founder and Q Grant smartwatches, and it looks like the company has got new ones to show off again. Fossil recently introduced two new Android Wear smartwatches called the Q Wander and Q Marshal, along with two analogue smartwatches, and an activity tracker.
The Q Wander is a more feminine watch, with a smaller case measuring at 44mm, and a “soft curving, multi-finish case with artfully sculpted wire lugs”. The Q Marshall on the other hand features a rugged case that measures at 46mm, and is designed with a striking navy blue plate case paired with vintage-inspired leather straps.
Apart from the looks, both the Q Wander and Q Marshal are similar in terms of functionality. They have an always-on display, allows you to respond to messages from your watch by tapping on the screen or using voice commands, customisable watch face designs (including exclusive Fossil dials), and lets you keep track of your commute with timely reminders thanks to Google Now cards.
Compatible with Android smartphones and iPhones, both the Q Wander and Q Marshal will be available later this year.
For those who prefer a traditional watch look but with modern technology on the inside, Fossil also introduced two new smart analogue movement watches – Q Tailor and Q Nate. They have a traditional analogue watch face, and can alert you to incoming calls and notifications from your closest contacts, automatic time zone updates, a second time zone, and can track your activities such as calories, sleep and steps.
Finally, if you do not need a new timepiece on your wrist but still wish to keep track of your activities, there’s the Q Motion sleep and activity tracker which was announced earlier than the rest of the group. Like most activity trackers, it does not have a display. Instead, Q Motion uses multi-colour LED lights and haptic vibrations to send users notifications of calls, texts and activity. The benefit of an activity tracker is that it has a long battery life that can last up to six months.
