This week, Fossil expanded its already extensive selection of linked watches for women by introducing the Q Neely and Q Jacqueline timepieces. Together, these two new watches bring the company’s total number of connected watches to a staggering number.
A fully functional smartwatch may not be something that everyone desires. Certain people prefer a hybrid watch, which has the appearance of a conventional wristwatch but also contains some additional features.
Both the Q Nelly and the Q Jacqueline come equipped with features that are comparable to those found in the majority of Fossil’s hybrids. They stand apart from other gadgets because, with their 36mm casings, they appear to be rather small when worn on the wrists. These new clocks from Fossil are unmistakably designed with fashion in mind, and they come with interchangeable straps, so you can personalize them however you see fit.
The functionality that customers will receive consists of the normal tracking of steps, calories, and sleep, in addition to the ability to set personalized fitness goals. The dial in the center of the watch displays all of this information for the wearer.
Notifications from social networking platforms, texts, emails, calendar events, and apps will be signaled via vibrations and animated watch hands. In addition, there is a remote photo and audio controller as well as an alarm clock with several time zones. The 5 ATM water-resistant device may continue to function for around 6 months when powered by a regular coin cell battery.
Both the Fossil Q Neely and the Fossil Q Jacqueline can be purchased through Amazon.com.
In other news, Fossil has said that it is getting ready to increase its production of smartwatches as part of its plan to transition away from traditional timepieces and toward linked timepieces. This information was shared at the annual Qualcomm 5G Summit, which was held in Hong Kong this year.
“Wearables account for 15 percent of our total business. Greg McKelvey, Chief Strategy Officer at Fossil Group, remarked during the keynote address at the 5G Summit that within the next three to four years, approximately 50% of the company’s operations will have connectivity.
We’re just getting started, and we’re going to scale it tremendously. In the next generation, we are going to initiate the use of cellular technology and become more connected.
The news does not come as a complete surprise. Fossil has been rapidly expanding its smartwatch line, and by the end of this year, it is anticipated that the company will have an amazing 300 connected gadgets spanning the entirety of its product range.
