Fossil has announced two new Android Wear smartwatches and a series of fitness trackers, for customers looking to add new technology to their wrist. The smartwatches are dubbed the Q Marshal and Q Wander and will be priced starting at $275 with a touchscreen display and wireless charging. Android Wear will give users the ability to take calls, reply to texts, launch apps, and more, right from their wrist. They will come in two sizes, 44mm and 46mm, and will join Fossil’s original smartwatches, the Q Founder, the Q54 Pilot, and the Q Grant.

The Wander has a more feminine design, with a gold finish and softer lines, and interchangeable leather straps. Fossil describes the Q Marshal as having a “rugged case,” with a navy blue finish and “vintage-inspired” leather straps. Functionally, the Q Wander and Q Marshal should be similar to the Q Founder and by extension, all other Android Wear watches, for that matter, as they have circular, always on touchscreen displays, and voice controls. Fossil says the new watches will come with a revised wireless charger that’s slimmer than the Q Founder’s pillow-like apparatus.




Fossil has committed to launching 100 wearable devices this year, including these Android Wear watches and other, more basic activity trackers across its various brands. As part of that, it is also announcing the Q Motion, a basic activity tracker that also offers some smartphone notifications and a tap-based control system. It will hit stores this summer for $95.

It also appears that neither watch includes an optical heart-rate sensor, a feature found in a majority of smartwatches from companies such as Apple, Samsung and Motorola. An exact release date wasn’t announced. The Q Marshal and Q Wander will arrive sometime later this year and start at $275.
