Cory Richards, the famed National Geographic wildlife photographer, and Fossil have just announced the upcoming availability of a new limited edition Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch.

Dubbed Fossil Q x Cory Richards, the new smartwatch will be launched on March 27, although details about the price haven't been disclosed yet. Design-wise, the smartwatch draws inspiration from the Fossil Blue, the first watch Richards received in his early twenties.

The Fossil Blue soon became “a piece of art” as Richards wore it everywhere, even while climbing in Yosemite and on his first sea-kayaking trip to Australia. 

The watch became a moving piece of art. It didn’t say what time it was but where I had been and what I had done, said Richards.


We aren't given too much information about the smartwatch's insides, but Fossil confirms it runs Android Wear 2.0 and features a touchscreen display. Fossil Q x Cory Richards smartwatch comes with built-in activity tracker that can be used to count steps, distance and calories burned.

Moreover, the limited edition smartwatch features customizable faces with light silver, blue and black dials, as well as splashes of orange on the second-hand and sub-eyes that can be further personalized with a swipe of a finger.

Also, Fossil added a rugged topring to the stunningly designed case to better highlight both the frame and bracelet. Lastly, the smartwatch features an interchangeable leather strap with Cory Richards' signature.

There is no place for the ugly flat tire screen on a 2017 smartwatch.

So close to be a classy design
But the flat tire and black ring ruins it, makes it look cheap
