At first glance, you see four analog watches—Q Nate and Q Crewmaster have the casual, sporty feel he loves, while Q Tailor and Q Gazer keep things stylish and effortless for her. Much to our delight, these smartwatches do much more than tell the time: they alert you of smartphone notifications, count your steps (and sleep) through the Fossil Q App and have the new Q Link technology, which lets you choose between ringing your phone, controlling your music or taking a photo.Not excited about having to charge yet another smart device? These watches’ battery lasts up to six months and we’ll replace it for free during your first year of use. Seriously cool, right?
How does one receive notifications if the watch doesn’t have a display screen? It’s all in the sub-eye, the watch hands and vibrating alerts. You can toggle between functions with the three buttons on the right: the top button shows you the date, the middle one lets you switch between modes and the bottom one activates the Q LINK functionality you previously set up.
Take a closer look at the dial and you’ll see the sub-eye hand moving as it tracks your activity throughout the day (and moving in celebration when you achieve your daily step goal). The sub-eye also lets you see a second time zone, the last alert received, alarm, and date.
