Fossil Q Founder smartwatch now available for purchase starting at $295 USD
Fossil Q Founder
Although it was expected to retail starting at $275 USD, this smartwatch hits the market starting at $295 USD.

Fossil Q Founder is finally available for purchase and, unfortunately, its price is slightly higher than previously announced - $295 USD instead of 275. Fortunately, all the expected specs and features are in place and the only thing not available yet is a leather strap option. However, the leather straps should become available at some point in the future, but we cannot tell if that will happen in time for the holiday shopping season or not.

Fossil Q Founder has a stainless steel case and has been IP67-certified for protection from water. This Android Wear-powered smart wearable has 4 GB of internal storage and connects to Android and iOS devices via Bluetooth 4.1 LE. It has a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyro, as well as a round touchscreen for user input. Its 400 mAh battery provides up to 24 hours of autonomy.

Although leather straps from Fossil are not available yet, the stainless steel strap that comes with the smartwatch can be changed with any 22 mm strap on the market.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
