Fossil is expanding its Android Wear-powered smartwatches next week with a limited edition version of the Fossil Q. The watch was made in collaboration with famed photographer Cory Richards.
Fossil Group to release more than 300 new wearable devices in 2017
Richards’ work can be seen regularly in National Geographic magazine and he describes himself as an “longtime Fossil enthusiast”. He worked with the smartwatch team to help create a version of the Fossil Q with a design that’s similar to the Fossil Blue watch that Richards owned while he was in his 20s.
In addition to all of the Android Wear features, the limited edition Fossil Q x Cory Richards smartwatch will include a number of customizable faces, including light silver, blue and black dials. They will also have orange colors on the second-hand and sub-eyes that can also be customized. The case of the watch will include a rugged topring, along with a silver-tone case and bracelet. Finally, the watch will come with another strap that’s made of leather, and it comes with Richards’ signature.
Based on the press release, it sounds like this may be the first of a series of limited edition Fossil Q smartwatches, so it’s possible we will see more of these kind of collaborations in the near future. The Fossil Q x Cory Richards smartwatch will go on sale on Monday, March 27, but pricing has yet to be revealed.
