Fossil Launches First Full-round Touchscreen Smartwatches
Today Fossil introduced the latest Fossil Q additions at IFA 2017 they had originally announced the pre-launch for these watches back on the 7th of August.
“We know the watch industry is in a pivotal moment of change. The evolution of design to include technology is something that we, as a company fueled by creatives, are so passionate about. We have the ability to make a great user experience for our customers in ways we never imagined.” said Jill Elliott, Chief Creative Officer. “We’re listening to feedback, optimizing our products, and connecting with watch wearers in new ways. In the upcoming seasons, we are excited to introduce more sizes, shapes, and designs targeting our female customer. We know fashion comes first for her, and with technology innovations, we are able to introduce smaller touchscreen watches, and our smallest hybrid to date in the timeless fashionable way only Fossil can.”
From the pictures the watches look great, and I definetly would be willing to give up my Movado for one of these, but I haven’t personally tested them to say if they are as great in person as they look in pictures.
