Back in March, Fossil revealed its plans to introduce 300 smartwatches in 2017, including a mix of hybrid analogs and others running Android Wear 2.0. The new wearables come from Fossil itself as well as brands like Misfit, Diesel, Emporio Armani and Skagen, all of which are owned by parent company Fossil Group. The firm says the idea here is to offer consumers more choices, since not everyone likes the same style of watch. Pictured above, for one, is Skagen’s Hagen Connected Steel-Mesh, a $220 hybrid smartwatch with a traditional design and features such as activity tracking, sleep monitoring and support for phone notifications.
Asides from those specs, Fossil’s hybrid pieces have another thing in common: they come with a standard, replaceable coin-cell battery. Essentially, you just have to worry about downloading Fossil’s companion app to keep track of your data. As for the fully fledged smartwatches, there’s the Misfit Vapor, which sports a Moto 360-like design, heart-rate sensor and is powered by Android Wear 2.0. Naturally, Fossil has pieces for both men and women, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find a model you may be interested in. Let’s take a look at some of them.
