Traditional watch, companies are increasingly turning to the world of smart watches. One of these companies is Fossil, which is one of the main partners of Google’s Android Wear. Back in September 2014, Fossil Group and Intel announced that they will partner to create a smart watch, and this August we saw a small demonstration of the portable device.

Three of the four Fossil Q devices are standard analog watches with electronics integrated in their chains, which serves to track user activity.

These watches will be available on 25 October and are compatible with Fossil app for iOS and Android, which allows to display notifications on the watch and monitors activity. From Fossil says tracking your movements has never looked so elegant.
The entire line of related accessories is created with Intel Innovation and is compatible with Android 4.3 and higher, also with iPhone 5 and newer models (iOS 8.2 and higher) and is connect via Bluetooth LE. The application of Fossil works with some of the best fitness apps Google Fit, Health, UP by Jawbone and UA Record of Under Armour. Accessories also come with wireless base charging system.
Perhaps the most interesting model is the Q Founder, who works with Android Wear and includes a full touch screen. Q Founder is powered by Intel chip and the his price starts from $275.
