Fossil's newest smartwatches are on sale for $50 off, older models get even bigger discounts
Fossil sells without a doubt some of the most fashionable Wear OS-powered Apple Watch alternatives out there, and unlike Tag Heuer, Montblanc, or Louis Vuitton's luxury options, the American brand's smartwatches are typically available at reasonable prices. Even better, the Fossil Sport and Q Gen 4 lineups have received numerous discounts of late, fetching 50 bucks less than usual once again between today and April 1 (no joke).

To apply the $50 markdown to your order, you'll need to remember to enter the "BIGDEAL" promo code in a special box in your cart before checkout. Unfortunately, the discounts are not cumulative or combinable with other special offers. Hence, if you're interested in more than one smartwatch, your best play is to individually buy each unit and use the aforementioned code on every single order (different e-mails and shipping addresses might be required).

Powered by Qualcomm's hot new Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor, the Fossil Sport can be purchased for $225 instead of a $275 list price under the terms of this "big deal" in various colors and either a 41 or 43mm size. The Fossil Q Gen 4 family is even broader, including Venture and Explorist styles and an extensive choice of materials and paint jobs for their interchangeable 22mm straps.


Although you get an older and technically slower chipset with these super-stylish watches, the designs arguably make them worth every penny of their $275 regular price, which you can bring down to $225 for a limited time. There's even a $350 box set containing a glitzy Fossil Venture HR Gen 4 in rose gold-tone stainless steel with additional mesh and leather straps that the aforementioned coupon code can be used on for a $50 discount.

Meanwhile, a separate deal set to expire on April 14 offers up to 40 percent in savings on "select spring styles", including several Fossil Q Gen 3 touchscreen smartwatch models and a bunch of so-called "hybrid" smartwatches. For instance, you can get Gen 3 Explorist variants with leather bands in a number of hues at $179 a pop (down from $255), no promo codes needed.
