The Fossil is an American manufacturer known for making watches for brands such as Armani Exchange, Diesel, Burberry and Adidas. She will launch a smartwatch clock with Android Wear, and it will be cheaper than the Bike 360.
The Fossil Q Founder has Intel processor – instead of 400 Snapdragon we saw in almost all smartwatch clock this year – and, by turning Android Wear, it works with Android devicesand also iPhones.
The watch features round screen and the same “flat tire” Bike 360 – the bottom of the screen is black, and probably keeps the ambient light sensor. According to Mashable, “he is huge, especially on female pulses – but the company plans to develop smaller smartwatches in the future”.
The Q Founder does everything you’d expect from a smartwatch clock: get notifications, understands voice commands, has custom cards from Google Now, and has Wi-Fi connection to not rely on entirely on your smartphone.
The Fossil reveals a few additional details. We don’t know if the Q Founder has heart rate sensor, or what your battery duration. It will be released in the U.S. by the end of the year for $275, with black or silver bracelet. There, the new Bike 360 costs from $300.
The company will also launch other wearables. The Q Grant is a traditional Watch-have real pointers, instead of a screen-but is able to track your physical activity, and get notifications via Bluetooth with a gentle vibration. It will be available on October 25 for $175.
And we have the bracelets Out Q and Q Dreamer, made respectively to men and women.They also accompany your physical activity and vibrate with notifications. Both will be released on the 25 day costing $125.
The Fossil app for iOS and Android can connect to different platforms, including Google, Apple, Jawbone and UA Health Record (Under Armour). He tells you how many steps you gave, and how many calories burned throughout the day.
This is not the first onslaught of the Fossil smart watches with LED camera (check http://www.homethodology.com/2016/08/02/led-watch-with-camera/). In 2003, she released Palm OS running on a 1.5″ square screen. And in 2006, came the Fossil Caller ID, traditional clock connected to Symbian phones via Bluetooth and featured in a small OLED screen who was calling.
