Fossil shows off its upcoming Android Wear watch, coming this holiday season
We’ve known for months now that Fossil has had plans to create an Android Wear-powered smartwatch, and late last month the company unveiled the new device at Intel’s Developer Conference in Shenzhen, China. Today, alongside two other upcoming additions to the Q line of connected wearables, Fossil is giving us a better look at its first Android Wear smartwatch.
The new Fossil Q line consists of a connected bracelet (probably something along the lines of a Fitbit or Jawbone), a connected “non-display” watch, and the Android Wear watch. The Android Wear device will come with its own companion application and will have the ability to track your daily activity. That’s all par for the course when it comes to Android Wear watches, though. The Fossil blog post also says its entire Q line will be compatible with Android, iOS and Windows devices, but we’re betting the Android Wear watch will be excluded from this list. Google has been pretty closed off to Windows devices in the past, so compatibility with Microsoft’s mobile platform is looking pretty unlikely at this point.
The Fossil Q Android Wear watch will be available for purchase this holiday season. We’ll of course bring you more details as they arise. But for now, tell us – are you more interested in Fossil’s new smartwatch, or do you have your eye on the new hotness from Huawei?
