This Fossil hybrid looks nothing like a smart watch yet still provides several smart watch features such as app interactivity; fitness tracking; alerts for texts, email, events and social media; alarm; auto-timezone sync; remote control of camera and music and more. The attractive gold case and blue dial are both traditional design and compliment each other well. There is a no daily charging required because it uses a replaceable battery that's rated to last up to a year. The blue leather band, although a little thin, is soft, attractive and can be easily swapped with another style if desired.
This watch looks good, wears well with all styles of dress and provides enough smartwatch features to justify calling it a smartwatch. It doesn't have a touchscreen nor voice control, so you can't read or reply to texts, take calls, view your agenda on the watch or do any other touchscreen enabled tasks but you can track your sleep, steps, calories burned and receive alerts for texts, reminders, alarm, calendar alert and more. The dial uses the hands as well as a complication at the bottom to display certain data. Alerts can be indicated by vibration as well as hand movements. The crown and side buttons can be programmed for tasks such as displaying the date, controlling music or operating the camera.
The watch syncs through the iOS and Android compatible Fossil Q app and unlike the Apple Watch or Android Wear based watches, it doesn't play favorites. The feature set is consistent across both platforms. By comparison, Android Wear watches are great in Android but usually greatly lacking in iOS and the Apple Watch will only work in iOS.
This watch caters to a niche market for whom an attractive timepiece is more important than touchscreen features. However, if you're considering this watch purely as a less costly smart watch option, but really prefer a true fully functional smartwatch, Fossil and other brands like ASUS make affordable smart watches with touchscreen displays that are even cheaper than these hybrid watches. The ASUS Zenwatch 2 is selling for well under a hundred dollars in many places and is a really nice and capable smart watch. For those looking specifically for a hybrid style watch with classic mechanical wristwatch styling, this is one of the better looking models that I've encountered.
Look and feel of the watch:: 4-5 stars.
I like the look for the Fossil Q Grant hybrid smartwatch. It has a clean look to the face and roman numerals for the time. It has a shiny gold/copper color to the case. My preference would have been a little less gold and more darker copper. The watch is large, even on my wrist. The band itself is about 1/2” too short for my needs. I have not run into this issue with my other watches.
Hybrid Smartwatch functionality:: 0-1 stars.
- I installed the Fossil Q app on my iPhone and was required to immediately setup an account with Fossil with name and birthdate and email (would strongly prefer not to have to do this) and had problems just creating a username and password. Kept being told the password was in the wrong format (it was not). Turns out there was an issue with the birthdate I chose and not the password.
- Ran into issues pairing to the smartphone (which I very rarely have), eventually by repeating the process it worked (I think I may have initially missed a step which is ridiculously easy to do because some commands are in large phone and the screen changes to another step and some commands are in small font, easy to miss).
- Using the App. The user interface for configuring and setting the presets on the watch up is bad… just bad. The App is non-intuitive, figuring out how to load the presets is confusing especially since there are no instructions that come with the watch, and just installing the App and trying to use it does not work.
- To make things worse, the app has part of the screen taken up with product advertisement, something that should NOT! be in an app like this.’
- There are few details available on the presets with the App that can be loaded onto the watch. You need to poke and prod and navigate through kludgy menus to select presets. And when you do, you get strange messages like “you need to setup a second time zone and configure the alarm” or things won’t work ??
- Of the presets, I only found 2 I thought might be real-world useful… (1) there is a music (control) setting that the details say pressing a button once pauses/restarts and that double pressing it causes the song to be skipped. Not documented is that a long press will cause the song to restart. Not a big detail to miss, until you realize stuff is missed everywhere throughout the app. (2) there is a take picture app that will snap a phone from your phone, what you need to be aware of is that the camera app needs to be open for it to work (not rocket science, but document this stuff). When the camera app is not open, pressing the button on the watch will cause the phone to unmute (??). Not documented.
- The worse ‘feature’ I found is that when I left the watch unused for a week and put it on and paired it. I found that none of the presets would work. I had to re-install the presets.
- This App should not have been released to the public.
Using the watch as a smartwatch::
- When using the watch as a smart watch, my setting for the middle button was the default switch thru modes. Repeatedly pressing it would switch through the modes with the little dial on the bottom of the watch face indicating which mode was displaying (alert/time 2/alarm/date). The issue with this is that those modes are almost unreadable in normal light and useless in dim light.
- The other rim of the watch face has 31 numbers for indicating the day of the date. In bright sunlight this is readable, anything else it was able impossible to see the date number due to slight curvature in the glass.
- For me, I did not find the smartwatch features compelling or useful.
