Fossil aims for athletes with smartwatch mixing sports and style
Fossil has added a new waterproof model called Control to its Q smartwatch range that’s aimed specifically at athletes.
The device features a heart rate sensor and altimeter, and the activity and fitness tracking apps that pair with the smartwatch can access accelerometer and direction-change sensor data.
The stainless-steel case of the classic clock face measures 44 millimeters diagonally and is just under 14 millimeters thick.
A special feature is the touch-sensitive display bezel – rotating it allows users to navigate through the different menus.
The colour of the always-on display can also be customised.
The operating system, Android Wear 2.0, allows notifications, interaction and voice control functions when used with a smartphone running Android 4.4 or iOS 9 and higher.
With a wireless induction charger, the Q Control is available for US$275 (RM1,125), either with a black case and black silicone strap, or in silver-gold with a grey strap.
