Fossil announces the prettiest looking smartwatches at Baselworld 2016
At the watch expo in Baselworld 2016 in Switzerland, Fossil has announced two of the prettiest smartwatches you’ll see. The Android Wear powered Fossil smartwatches are quite fashion-forward and will give tough competition to popular smartwatches like Moto 360, Tag Heuer Connected or Huawei Watch. Fossil Q Founder and Q Marshal are the two new models in the line-up and they are going to be available summer/fall this year for a price range starting from $275.
Both these smartwatches are going to be slim with a 44mm and 46mm multi-finish case, encasing the always-on touchscreen displays to get vital notifications like calls and alerts. Just like some other smartwatches, Fossil Q Founder and Q Marshal are going to have interchangeable straps and customizable watch faces.
You’ll also have access to Fossil’s exclusive dials to change your style every once in a while. Thankfully both these smartwatches are going to be compatible with Android and Apple devices.
Along with these smartwatches Fossil has also announced the Q Motion activity and sleep tracker. The wearable gives you real-time notifications from paired smartphone and also keeps track of your sleep or fitness activities.
Since Fossil is a watchmaker, they made it a point to give a sneak-peak of the new smart analog watches Q Tailor and Q Nate. Smart because they connect via Bluetooth to Android/Apple device to track sleep, calories and get automatic time zone updates. So you can basically call these two good-looking analog watches a semi-smartwatch.
