Fossil this brand may we are not ripe, it is a company started in 1984, the United States, is also a TAB.Now responsible for armani, MK watch manufacturing fashion brands such as intelligence, so the Fossil is known as intelligent watchmaker.
We are curious, how Fossil in front of the incoming phone bosses, it create a smart watches and would be any different?We take Q Explorist, for example,.
With Fossil richness, work on sophisticated degrees need not say oneself.Look from the dial, Q Explorist is fundamental key with deep blue, platinum is dim, no publicity that light blue color in the pictures.Dial is surrounded by a ring stainless steel, stainless steel ring on a scale design, very powerful.
Dial is 44 mm diameter, it is quite big.Big dial can display more information, also won’t appear petty wear in hand.
And its thickness is 12 mm, with Apple Watch 3 of 11.4 mm is very close, and is thinner than many of the android smart watches.
Real leather strap do manual work is careful, walk line is very neat, the surface grain is exquisite, hand touch up is like a sister.Partial hard texture, bending, will rebound soon.
Strap inside is more soft and smooth, more close skin.Wristbands and wrist fit is very good, regardless of whether they are big fellow coarse wrist, or sister long fine zhang, can put the watch in mind, at the same time will not have any discomfort such as luo hands.
Its watch button and watch body for the same kind of color, rough metallic collocation brown leather strap, the attribute of restoring ancient ways to watch reveal undoubtedly, sending out the unique charm.
Strap on a small card needle, with her nails a clasp, can easily replace (22 mm strap), the website can find rich band selection (about 14), is 290 yuan price, it is quite a conscience.
The integral style of the Q Explorist still follow the traditional manner of watches, mechanical watches, it even has a Fossil a shadow.

In terms of appearance, it is very bo person eyeball, watch the general intelligence, seem to try very hard to highlight their intelligence, minimalist in the design, or too skinny, even at first glance, the taste of a casio watch.
In contrast, the Explorist Q, it has a traditional watch is sedate, also there is no lack of innovation, large screen and retro dial complement each other.This balance is rare, let the people of different ages can handle it well.
Under the electronic screen new kernel
Then said its intelligent components.Website is not Q Explorist screen parameters, but it doesn’t matter, all the years, the screen does not pass the phenomenon will only appear on the low-end products.
Look to the naked eye, the screen resolution is high enough, his eyes to see, also could not the slightest feeling pixels.And have good brightness and screen Angle, to the outdoor sunlight, also can see the content on the screen.
The screen has two small regret, first of all, there is no the sapphire material, no scratch, ordinary wear her wrist problem is not big, can put in my pocket, may leave and intimate contact traces of keys.
It under the breath screen effect is not ideal, the screen and the surrounding black border no forming perfect and unified, the contrast is obvious in the sun, obsessive-compulsive disorder may be concerned about, but it does not affect the normal use.
Watch, there are three buttons on their operation logic is complex, the middle point click to open the App bar, long press can exhale “go ask” voice assistant.Two keys are custom shortcuts, you can link your favorite App.
My set is, for example, according to the above button, open the micro letter, press the button below, open the flashlight.So I see WeChat, reply message is very convenient, can light up key chain with table directly, go home at night and don’t have to pay phone flash open.
Q Explorist built-in has abundant function, about the following:
Motion tracking, application control, reply notice
Q Explorist main is not the movement function, watch itself doesn’t have a heart rate sensor.But inside the Keep (a famous fitness software), I go out one day, it can give a reference data, such as walk 2000 steps, how many distance, calories, and so on, to help reduce fat.
Watches within the App is not many, but the core functions are in place.Such as pay treasure, can show the qr code to make payment, to 711 when buying a bento to sway the watch was good, very attract eyeball passers-by.
Public review, for example, can view the coupon or take-out logistics information, what time delivery to the point?Raise my hand and see it.
Sogou maps, for example, can help you navigate, bike ride share, not the left hand, right hand phone.Shu xin!
I personally use most of all is the notification response function.Mobile phone chuai pocket, don’t have to pay to the information, lift the wrist watch is good (watch vibrate hint).
This seemingly simple action actually has many advantages, such as in winter, to a message, I’ll have to take out from his jeans was very tight domestic mobile phone, with a minute later, after the back pocket, also bearing the thorn cold metal fuselage to the thigh.
Explorist with Q,Lift the wrist.
In addition, it can solve the problem of information anxiety to a great extent, the mobile phone ring ding ding ding, I can see all the contents on the watch.Some news regardless, at some messages can be directly reply on the watch.
Said WeChat back, watch support three reply way: voice, words and expressions.
Speech is holding down to talk, and on the phone.Said a voice, text is your watch will automatically help you to translate words, experience and identification accuracy is good, but need to slow down, speak clearly, and can’t be too noisy surroundings, on the subway effect is not ideal.
Inside the watch can’t find the phone WeChat of expression, this means that you can’t fight figure…But there are still some expressions can be used to use, is a kind of eruption.
In addition, through the watch can make a phone call.Short press the middle button, directly to the watch says “call the small white”.
It’s surprising call quality, speaker in hardly notice position, but it can clear the full sound, even can be used to sing aloud.
Performance, it has a capacity of 4 gb, USES the Qualcomm Snapdragon ™ Wear 2100 processor.The processor not seen?It is really a qualcomm Xiao dragon to watch customized products, don’t have to worry about system caton, feel free to use.
Watch the magnetic suction wireless charging, feeling a bit weak adsorption force, with the hand touch off easily.Charging time about 2 hours or so, life, as long as you don’t put the watch when cell phones, with absolutely no problem all day.
Embarrassing Android Wear
Want with Q Explorist, need in the mobile phone to download “Android Wear Chinese version”.But it can only play and watch matches function basically, oh, still can change the dial style.But the management of the software for the dial is very messy, watches the built-in shop, you can find a dial subject is an application.
On some humanized details of Android Wear is also missing.Left hand table, for example, I like to have three physical buttons on the left side (i.e., crown on the left), and this time I found the direction of the screen is upside down, I cannot reverse it.
Although watches compatible with iOS, but after the iphones, many functions cannot be used.If nothing else, watch cannot download WeChat, also can’t make a phone call, that I will you do?This pan is still have to Android Wear come back.
At the same time, I can’t watch on a mobile phone management within the App, can’t adjust the backend application refresh, can’t upgrade the software.Compared with Apple Watch, Android Wear the Chinese version of experience is two words: spicy chicken.

Under the wave
As a traditional Fossil watchmaker, have done more than 30 years of the watch.Today you open the Fossil’s website, the first thing you encounter is it smart watches.Fossil in actively seeking change, in addition to our experience of Q Explorist, there are a variety of different pattern and style of intelligent wrist watch.
As a leader of smart Watch, Watch is Apple lean toward movement seeks for, in contrast, Fossil focuses more on the Watch itself, with excellent workmanship and design, let technology elements hidden within the Watch, rather than on the above.
In the face of “smart” this kind of new fashion, Fossil has its own interpretation.
Creating a smart watches, however, is not difficult, difficult is how to build the matching software.
And in this regard, Fossil ate kui obviously.
I’ve never used abroad Android Wear, but for it is well known, the domestic only Android Wear Chinese version is optional.And it as a pig teammates exist, alive to Q Explorist a good smart watches under the water.
Android Wear problem is a common phenomenon, and also on other Android intelligent table.From this perspective, want to get rid of the Android Wear limit, to realize the hard and soft like apple combining ability, can only rely on the mobile phone manufacturers.Launch a smart software, watches and cell phone connectivity, will bring a better user experience.
This is a distant future.
Before that, if you want to experience the smart watches, I recommend Fossil, and its Q Explorist.
