Fossil launches four new hybrid smartwatches: Q Nate, Q Crewmaster, Q Gazer and Q Tailor


US-based company Fossil has just unveiled a new set of Q series hybrid smartwatches: Q Nate, Q Crewmaster, Q Gazer and Q Tailor. All four smartwatches will be available later this month for prices starting at $175.

Although the hybrid smartwatches announced by Fossil might look like ordinary watches, they have been beefed-up with lots of smart connectivity features, including sleep monitoring, filtered notifications with vibrations and dial animations, as well as Q LINK functionality controlled by bottom pusher (ring my phone, take a photo, control my music).

Each of these four hybrid smartwatches should provide up to 6-month battery life (based on usage). Speaking of battery, Fossil mentions they come with coin cell battery, which is easy to change with tool.

Naturally, Fossil's smartwatches benefit from Bluetooth wireless technology, but they also come with Activity Integration including Google Fit, UA Record by Under Armour, UP by Jawbone and Apple Health app.

The smartwatches also offer features like custom goal settings, automatic time zone, alarm, and second time zone. They are compatible with Android 4.4 and up or iOS 8.2 and later (at least iPhone 5).

Fossil Q Nate, Q Crewmaster, Q Gazer and Q Tailor provide owners with a wide range of personalization options as well, including interchangeable straps in leather, silicone and stainless steel.

As mentioned, all four hybrid smartwatches will be available for prices starting at $175, beginning September 26. However, customers will be able to pre-order them starting September 14.
