Fossil announces three more “hybrid” smartwatches that work with Android



Fossil has a the Q Founder, Q Wander, and Q Marshall Android Wear devices, but that isn’t where they stop with “smart” watches. Fossil also has a line of watches they call “hybrid smartwatches.” These watches can do smart things, but they look like a standard analog watch. Earlier this week, Fossil showed off three new hybrid models.

The Emporio Armani, Kate Spade, and Diesel are shown in the image above. As you can see, they don’t look like smartwatches, but they do indeed have some smart guts. The watches connect to an app on your phone via Bluetooth. The watches can track your activity and vibrate for notifications. You can also use the buttons on the side to perform rudimentary tasks. Since there is no display, the battery lasts up to six months.

The Kate Spade watch will cost $250 and be available early next year. The Diesel and Armani will be available later this month, but pricing was not provided. Is anyone interested in these hybrid watches?

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.
