If you’re like me – you love the look of a traditional style watch – but you’re starting to see some of the advantages of a smart watch too. The Fossil Q Grant watch is a full function chronograph that comes in a few different colors – and it Fossil Q technology to track your activity and give you some basic notifications on your wrist. This watch looks like a perfect entry into the smartwatch world for the person who doesn’t want a digital face watch – but one with actual hands and dials. So let’s take a look at the Fossil Q Grant Chronograph – click the picture for a link.
Fossil Q Grant Chronograph FTW10001P – MSRP $175

- Leather band – width 22mm
- Stainless Steel case

So this watch offers traditional styling – and the functionality of tracking your activity during the day – just like a Fitbit Flex or Jawbone Up – but it’s built into the watch that you want to wear everyday. I personally don’t like wearing a separate rubber bracelet type tracker – but I always wear a watch – so this is definitely a plus.
The interface is the Fossil Q App – which has Notifications, Activity and something called Curiosity which challenges you to get moving. The reviews for the App are good and it has many of the features of the popular activity trackers.
This watch also comes in a few colors to match your preference – click on each for a link:
