Fossil Q Marshal and Q Wander now available for purchase in the US


After going up for pre-orders earlier in the month, the Fossil Q Marshal and Q Wander are now available for purchase in the US.

The two Fossil Q-series smartwatches share many of their hardware characteristics, such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset with 4GB of integrated storage space, as well circular displays (which unfortunately come with a black bar at the bottom that's usually called a 'flat tire'). On the connectivity side, the Q Marshal and Q Wander both offer support for Bluetooth 4.1 LE and Wi-Fi 802.11n.

Although the two new Fossil smartwatches are highly similar to the older Fossil Q Founder in terms of specs and features, there are some design differences between them. For instance, the Q Founder is slightly larger than its two younger sibling. The Founder comes with a 47mm diameter case, while the Wander and Marshal feature a 45mm one. This difference in size is also reflected in the battery: the Founder has a 400mAh unit while the other two come with smaller 360mAh batteries. Speaking of charging, the Fossil smarwatches, this operation is done via a charging cradle which magnetically latches on the back side of the wearables.

Specs aside, however, the main highlight of the Fossil Q-series smartwatches is the design, one that mimics the look and feel of a traditional analog wrist piece. There are multiple (interchangeable) bands to choose from, with options ranging from two-tone stainless steel and brown leather to silicone and even black leather. Depending on your preference of model and band, you can get one of the new Fossil Q smartwatches at prices varying between $275 and $315.
