Smartwatches have certainly paved a new concept for watch lovers by blending the smart features with the time keeping features. However, few watch lovers still love the old and classy analog watch movements on their wrists. The new Fossil Q Hybrid Smartwatch is out there with analog movements on the face and additional smart features baked underneath.
This is quite a good offering especially for the ones who prefer to have few latest smart tech features but still the traditional watch look. The Fossil Q Hybrid Smartwatch can perform some basic smart activities like tracking your sleep and activity, waking you up with a vibrating alarm, and even support seconds time zones.
While most of the smartwatches fail to deliver enough battery juice, the Fossil Q Hybrid Smartwatch lasts for months of use. Also, it will always set time automatically while syncing with your phone.
At the first glance, this smartwatch feels bigger with a 44mm watch face and adjustable/removable strap. The crown and push buttons though in place, won’t let you set time. The time setting is done automatically by the watch app, and you can control it from your phone. The watch app is basic that lets you change some settings and gives easy access to sleep and activity tracking.
The watch app is available on both iOS and Android platform. Coming to its price, Fossil has fairly priced this watch to be at $175. We think that this is a fairly good deal for all those who are looking for some basic smart features, especially the activity and sleep tracking features, along with having the mechanical watch movements onboard.
