Smartwatches are getting better and better. With that said, the fashion brand Fossil has just unveiled its latest addition to the Fossil Q line. The fourth generation of the series comes with a host of new features in terms of function and design.
Meet the new Brand Ambassadors for Fossil Q
Fossil has appointed 4 new brand ambassadors to represent their new Fossil Q, which includes famous actors Mandy Moore from This is Us and Keneti James also known as KJ Apa from the show Riverdale. Along them they have Izzy Bizu a rising singer/songwriter and artist Darryl Westly.
A Mix Of Fashion And Functionality
The company known for its watches has come up with two new smartwatches, the Fossil Q Venture HR, and Q Explorist HR. Both devices share rather similar specs, save for the size and straps. The Q Venture HR comes with a 40mm watch face and 18mm strap while the Q Explorist HR comes with a larger 45mm face with 22mm strap. Users have the option to choose from over 36 watch faces to display on their smartwatch. When it comes to internals, the smartwatches are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100, designed for wearables. Also, these smartwatches are powered by Wear OS, the platform for wearables designed by Google.
On top of that, lots of sensors are included such as Heart Rate monitor, NFC, GPS, Altimeter, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Ambient Light, and also a Microphone. New additions such as NFC and GPS will allow users to make contactless payments as well as track workouts without the need of a smartphone. However, it should be noted that NFC payments will not work with Fossil units in Malaysia. This is due to the fact that it is exclusively compatible with Google Pay, which isn’t available in the country. The new lineup is compatible with both Android and iOS devices running on versions 4.4+ and 9.3+ respectively. Fossil stated that its new devices will be able to last 24+ hours on a single charge. However, this duration will ultimately be based on your usage. Also, it can be juiced up within an hour via a magnetic charger.
Pricing and Availability
When it comes to pricing, the new Fossil Q lineup retails from RM 1,244 to RM 1,272. The pricing will vary based on the model and the material that you’ll opt in for.
