Smartwatches are the next must-have accessory of every busy millennial out there. The current population is always online, and is constantly connected. Be it through desktops or phones, the importance and need for mobile connectivity grows exponentially each year. Though smartwatches are cool and convenient (what with all the amazing features), some might still prefer the classic look of analog watches rather than the futuristic digital style of a regular smartwatch. Now, you can have the best of both worlds with Fossil’s hybrid smartwatches. They have the classic, elegant look of analog watches, paired with functions of smartwatches such as activity tracking, syncing with your phones to allow notifications and so on.

Honestly, what’s not to love?



Fossil’s Q Neely and Q Jacqueline are not only gorgeous hybrid smartwatches, they are also the smallest of its kind. The delicate and elegant face can be personalised with any strap you wish. Whether you prefer metallic links or a soft pale leather strap, the Q Neely and Q Jacqueline watches are made to sync seamlessly with your lifestyle and fashion choices.

Their unassuming faces look like any other Fossil analog watch, however, like Superman disguised as Clark Kent, these watches have a myriad of smartwatch capabilities. You can track your sleep, calories and activity levels. On top that, it notifies you when you have a new message and you can even control your phone to take a photo handsfree. Unlike a regular smartwatch, the unique hybrid quality of these watches don’t require charging as it is powered by a coin lithium battery. You can also customise shortcut buttons (similar to hotkeys) that can allow you to instantly take a photo, start a stopwatch or skip the song track you’re listening to. All this in a compact, elegant design that will match your wardrobe perfectly.




There is something for the gentlemen as well. The Q Commuter and Q Grant are the male counterparts to Q Neely and Q Jacqueline. The subtle and understated face and interchangeable straps make the Q Commuter and Q Grant super versatile. Whether you’re in a sharp-looking suit or just a casual T-shirt and jeans, they will add the perfect debonair touch to any outfit, no matter the occasion. It’s both a reliable work companion and a chic accessory that every man will appreciate. Armed with all the bells and whistles of Fossil’s hybrid smartwatches, it does everything a modern smartwatch does but with a masculine, classy touch. It’s the perfect his and hers combo: Now couples can stay extra connected whilst looking as stylish as ever!

Fossil Q Hybrid Smartwatches are now available at all Fossil stores, selected department stores, and coming soon to Zalora on 20 November.
