CES 2017 | Fossil unveils three Q smartwatches
Fossil introduced the Q family of smart wearables last year, and the family has been steadily growing ever since. At this year's CES in Las Vegas, the company unveiled three thinner hybrid smartwatches. Just like their siblings, these are analog watches with smart features and impressive battery life. However, they are missing some of the features offered by full-on smartwatches.
The three new members of the Q family are known as Q Accomplice, Q Grant, and Q Modern Pursuit. They all come with three physical buttons and an app to set contacts to numbers on the watch face. The smart features provide fitness tracking capabilities, alarms, and control of the music playing on the connected handset. Q Accomplice looks like a new design, the thinnes of the three and aimed at women. Q Modern Pursuit has a sporty look, while Q Grant comes with red watch hands for improved visibility.
Same as all the existing Fossil Q wearables, the three new ones mentioned above connect via Bluetooth to smartphones using at least Android 4.4 KitKat or iPhone 5 or later with iOS 8.2 or higher. Fossil Q Grant, Q Accomplice, and Q Modern Pursuit are scheduled to hit the market this spring carrying price tags between $175 USD and $215 USD.
