What is a Hybrid Smartwatch?
Hybrid watches combine smartwatch functionality with the look of a traditional watch. Fossil Q hybrids sync with your smartphone to send you notifications via haptic vibrations, and you can set different hours on the watch to signify different contacts as they call or text you. You can also customize the buttons of a hybrid watch, which allows you to control your phone's camera, play songs from your library, log progress on your goals and more.
Hybrid smartwatches work in sync with the Fossil Q App to track your steps, distance, calories burned and sleep duration and quality while you wear it. Just pick your favorite hybrid smartwatch, fire up your Bluetooth connection and get started.
What is a Smartwatch?
Smartwatches with touchscreen functionality have just that—a watch face that you can control with the touch or swipe of your finger. Once your Fossil Q smartwatch has spent some time on its magnetic charger, it will be able to deliver notifications from your smartphone via Bluetooth; expand, dismiss and reply to messages; integrate with Google Assistant, Google Play and Google Fit and sync with third-party apps like Uber and Spotify.
They'll also track your steps, distance, sleep, calories and most things that hybrid watches can. And with fully customizable functions, like the ability to set photos from your social media profiles as your watch face or swap out your watch strap, smartwatches never go out of style.
