Fossil Q Founder is the newest Android Wear model to take to the market, with two options already available on Google Play.
Fossil Q Founder comes to complete a long list of Android Wear smartwatches, increasingly popular with customers. And while it might not be the brightest, it is certainly the best looking. Sure, tastes differ, but in our opinion, Fossil Q Founder is actually an Android Wear model that’s fit for a dinner party too. Sleek looking and quite classy, Fossil Q Founder is available in two options.
Option number one: for 275 dollars, Fossil Q Founder comes with a classy leather strap. Option number two: for an extra 20 dollars you can choose the stainless steel model. Both look dashing with the rounded but not bulky watch.
Let’s talk technicalities. Fossil Q Founder is the latest Android Wear model which, just as the Tag Heuer Connected is powered by Intel’s Atom CPU. That sets it aside from the majority of Android Wear models powered by the Qualcomm CPUs. With 1GB of RAM as well as 4GB of storage room, it should work like a charm.
Add the 24-hour battery lifespan and you have a 24/7 trusty ally on your wrist. The display is 240ppi at 1.5 inches.
Sensor specs include ambient light, in addition to accelerometer as well as gyroscope. What some may find as a problem is the flat tire like portion of the display. The flat tire has been much debated with Moto 360 (1st edition) and many users at the time found it unpleasant. Nonetheless, it’s less obvious with Fossil Q Founder and it shouldn’t shadow the fact that otherwise, the Android Wear model look impeccable.
Fossil Q Finder might not be the best choice for fitness aficionados as it lacks the by-now usual heart-rate sensor. Fossil has this type of features incorporated in another model, Q Grant.
