Fossil Q Founder now available for purchase
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.
