Released a couple of days ago, the Fossil Q Founder smartwatch is currently available only via Fossil’s website, where it costs $295. But the device will also be sold via Google Store – which isn’t surprising, since it runs Android Wear.
Google Store currently lists two Fossil Q Founder models, without saying when they’ll be available to
order: light stainless steel case with leather band, and light stainless steel case with silver-finish steel bracelet. There’s no word on how much they cost, though we imagine that the prices won’t be higher than the price that Fossil is asking on its own website.
The Fossil Q Founder is one of the world’s first Android Wear smartwatches to be powered by an Intel processor. It features a 1.5-inch, almost-circular display (a la Moto 360) with 360 x 326 pixels, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, and a 400 mAh battery. Like most smartwatches out there, this one is also dust- and water-resistant (IP67-certified). You can use the Fossil Q Founder with devices running Android 4.4 or later, iOS 8 or later.
