Is My Phone Compatible With A Smartwatch?
Asking yourself, "Is my phone compatible with a smartwatch?" Here's how to find out.
Before you purchase a new smartwatch, you'll want to make sure that it's a make and model that will pair seamlessly with the smart technology you're already carrying around with you.
Fossil Q Smartwatches - All Generations
Fossil Q smartwatches with touchscreen dials are compatible with Android and iOS devices, and specifically those with Android OS 4.3 and iOS 9 and above. As long as your phone has Bluetooth, you'll be able to pair it with your Fossil Q smartwatch!
If you're running iOS, go to the App Store and download the Android Wear App. If you're running Android, install it from Google Play. Once your smartwatch has a charge, you'll be able to follow the Android Wear app instructions to pair your watch with your smartphone and start using it.
Fossil Q Hybrid Watches - All Generations
Fossil Q hybrid smartwatches are compatible with Android and iOS devices, specifically those running Android OS 5 or iOS 9 and above. As long as your phone has bluetooth, you'll be able to pair it with your Fossil Q hybrid watch!
Your hybrid watch runs on a standard coin-cell lithium battery, so you won't have to charge it before pairing it with your smartphone. If you're running iOS, go to the App Store and download the Fossil Q App. If you're running Android, install it from Google Play. Make sure your Bluetooth is turned on, and hold the middle button of your watch until it vibrates 3 times to put it in pairing mode. The watch hands will animate, and the Fossil Q app will take you through the setup process for your hybrid watch.
