Great Starter for Ten
I bought this watch about two weeks ago, and have no regrets about the decision. I'm a big Fossil fan, and have a range of watches in my collection, but have never owned a smart watch before. When I saw the Q Exports in the shop, I knew that this would be a great place to start. The design: This is a lovely watch to look at. The bezel is simple, the buttons non-intrusive, and the detailing on the crown makes the piece really represent the Fossil brand without being obnoxious. I'm a big fan of leather straps, so this was an obvious choice, and the colour of the leather really compliments the casing cover. The standard digital display can be changed easily if you're more keen on a traditional face, and it was great to see some old favourites making an appearance in the available choices - even a BigTick! The materials: I'm used to a traditional Fossil watch, so firstly I really noticed the difference in weight with this piece. Not having a quartz movement inside the case really reduces the weight of the watch, which is noticeable given its size. Initially, I was wary of this, as it felt a little cheaper than other pieces I own. However, after a couple of weeks' use, I can confirm that the watch feels very sturdy - necessary for a clumsy owner like me. The strap does let the watch down a little - its a lovely colour, but could be a higher-quality leather. This being said, in true Fossil fashion, the strap can be switched easily, and my local store was more than happy to help with this. The interface: As I say, this watch represents my first move to a smart watch, and it really is very easy to get to grips with. The functionality can be customised, so each button does what you would like it to do. You can also use the data that the watch gathers on the phone app to assess your movement, schedule etc. with ease. One slight criticism here would be around integration - the data will not automatically pull through to other apps (on iPhone at least), but this really is a minor concern given the range of apps that can be used between the two devices. The battery: On buying the watch, I was advised that the battery would last up to 24 hours, and this is probably fair. I would recommend anyone buying this watch to charge it every night, as I did mistakenly allow the battery to die a few days ago, and had to carry out a full set-up following this - however I think this was because the software was updating when the battery ran out, and ultimately this was my fault! Overall, I'd recommend this watch to anyone considering their first smartwatch. Great design, simple interface, and just the right amount of customisability.

Q Explorist - A Modern Classic
Fantastic, a really beautiful watch. A solid piece of precision engineering finished off with a high quality leather strap. My first impression from the packaging was that Fossil is now on a level with Apple in terms of quality and presentation and I wasn’t disappointed at all when I took the watch out of its box and started to play with it. I was a little concerned at first about the lack of detailed instructions, but after several, frustrating, attempts at trying to pair the watch to my smart phone I eventually discovered that it was necessary to first select the correct language on the watch before starting the phone pairing procedure. This could have been mentioned in the quick start instructions, particularly for the likes of us Technophobes. Once I had overcome that very minor issue, I found the experience of discovering new features over the proceeding weeks to be very rewarding indeed. I’m a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to watches, however the attraction of complete connectivity with my smart phone, email, computer outlook calendar and my messaging applications has now outweighed my desire to wear one of my many classical mechanical timepieces, especially as I’ve selected the option of a traditional analog watch face. I haven’t yet found the need to explore the many available watch face options on the internet as I’ve been more than happy with the ‘Classic’ watch face, which came as one of the default options with the watch, particularly as I’ve managed to customize it to display the data and shortcuts that are of interest to me. I’ve found the drop-down menus to be intuitive and very easy to navigate, even for a person of limited multi-media aptitude such as myself, although I do believe that there are still many more surprises to come over the next few week as I continue to explore and discover the many options that I believe are available with this watch. Most of my working days are spent in meetings and being able to stay in touch with the outside world by a quick glance at my watch is ideal for me, and far more acceptable than having to continually pick up my smart phone every time it beeps – so annoying when you see other people doing this in meetings. My only niggle with the whole package is that the symbol on the charging pedestal is very difficult to see in anything other than very bright light. I’m not sure that it’s important to get the charging pedestal the right way round before charging the watch but if the symbol does need to be there then please make it more visible on the next generation. Having said all of that, I’ll give the watch a solid 10 out of 10 for quality, style, functionality and for dragging me into the 21st century. Thank you very much Fossil.

High tech watch with sophisticated style
Fossil Q3 Smartwatch Review look and feel of the product Premium look and feel. I would be happy to wear this watch both for daily work and for smart / casual occasions. I was complimented many times on the looks of the watch alone, even while the watch was in low power mode with the smart screen off. The watch fit comfortably after removing a link. I am used to wearing a TW Steel watch on a daily basis so I am used to the larger style watch faces. The Q3 felt light and very comfortable in comparison to this, I would feel fine wearing this watch all day. Features The watch 'Sleep Mode' or low power usage screen is a good feature as it allows the time to be seen on the screen at all times. During use the screen is very clear, and of a good size for reading messages. I did really appreciate that there was no charge slot on the device (or a concealed slot) and I think that contributes to the premium look and feel of the watch. I also think a good idea for the wireless charging could be that the wireless charger is plugged in but instead of a circular dongle at the end – It could be a small pillow to wrap the watch around to display the watch during its charge. I was pleased that the step counter was featured on the Q3 too, as it is an important element taken from a fitness tracker, installed into a premium watch. Steps are motivating to track in work and this should not be limited to fitness trackers such as FitBit etc. Set Up / Build Set up was simple and easy as I already had a Google Play account – Typing passwords in via mobile device was particularly impressive. Usability I found the side buttons are very useful and its a great feature that you can customise the commands when either is pressed. The gestures to wake are both functional and impressive I think the face changing features are too easily accessed (with a simple swipe from the home screen), and I think this makes a premium feature feel like a novelty. Having additional face styles on the play store is great and does give you the impression you could customise your watch to suit any occasion. I particularly like the minimalistic watch faces, and the metallic styles that move with a tilt of the wrist are great too! A major potential positive point for me was the control of music playing from a mobile device via the smartwatch. The function worked for me, however it is not quite as responsive as I was expecting – often not skipping to the next track, and then skipping three or four tracks ahead a few seconds later.

Does it support Strava?
Yes, Fossil Q Gen 3 watch supports Strava if it is paired with an Android phone. iOS users do not have this option.
- Can I leave my phone at home, go for a run and it sink to it when I get back?
Yes, Google Fit app installed on the watch will track your activities and steps as a standalone device.
I hope this helps.
Thanks for using Argos Q&A.
