The latter is definitely essential nowadays, even if the Q Explorist is more for everyday life. The actual smartwatch unit has a diagonal of 22 millimeters and is 12. The Q Explorist comes in a few different styles.

Fossil's watch is modern and well equipped, making it the best choice when fitness is not a priority. The direction is also clear, Fossil is aimed more at fashion-loving design and technology fans than at joggers. Well on my personal point of view, if you want that classic premium feeling of wearing a luxurious analog watch but want the latest technology integrated into it, then the Fossil Q Gen 2 Smartwatch is worth buying. The same way is also possible if you prefer to search by choosing the menu:. The only differences are in the design — apart from one exception.

As such, the upcoming smartwatch will be able to handle anything you throw at it.

You can find details of the offers on the respective website. One important thing to note is that the screen is not a complete circle. The manual is automatically downloaded on the desktop or in the file downloads of your computer. I like the design overall despite being plain and simple.

At first and second glance, the smartwatch looks like a real, classic wristwatch. As usual with fashion products, the Q-Explorist smartwatch is also available in several colors and made of different materials. The straps of the watch are also adjustable. The Misfit model is an outlier: It is the only model to offer an optical heart rate sensor. The Fossil Q Explorist 3rd Gen has a bezel, however, like the Gear S3, it cannot be moved. Of course, the battle for your wrist has never been more volatile. The display of the Fossil Q Explorist 3rd Gen is bright and glows with good colors.

At the bottom of the 360 x 326 pixel resolution display sits a black bar that houses a sensor. With moderate use, it lasts around a day. The design is simple and I think this kind of design is pretty common for analog watches but it looks cool for me. As we mentioned earlier, the Explorist runs Android Wear 2. The quality is not particularly good, but in some situations the hands-free function is of great help, especially when the hands are not free.
