Pre-orders are now available for Fossil's new Android Wear 2.0 watches
Starting today, you can pre-order both of Fossil's new Android Wear 2.0 powered smartwatches, the Fossil Q Venture and the Fossil Q Explorist. Both models will work with phones running iOS 9 and higher, and Android 4.3 and higher. The devices are priced in a range of $255-$275. Both smartwatch models can handle social media posts, texts, emails and alerts. You can track multiple time zones, set alarms and more. Set personal goals and try to destroy them.

The Q Venture and Q Explorist will both alert you when you have a call, text or app update, and a built-in microphone allows users to communicate with virtual voice activated personal assistants. Travel from one time zone to another, and your watch will automatically make the necessary adjustments. The Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset powers the pair, which include 4GB of native storage and 512MB of RAM. 

The difference between the two intelligent timepieces is in their sizes. The thinnest model offered thus far has been the Q Venture, equipped with a 11.5 mm case and a 42 mm diameter.  The Explorist comes with a 12.6mm case and a 45mm diameter. Neither watch features stand alone LTE connectivity, so your new timepiece will need to be paired with a connected smartphone using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

I've been seriously considering the Marshal Q, but seeing as how all these new watches are arriving shortly, I'm glad I waited. Either I'll go for the newer ones, or still get the Marshal Q, but at a discounted price.

NFC would be very welcome indeed, as I use Android Pay on a regular basis. Surprised that so many manufacturers are skipping it, as it seems like tech designed for something you wear on your wrist.
