Fossil Q wearables teased with iOS, Android, Windows support

Last month Fossil showed off a beautiful new Android Wear device. Now the watchmaker is offering a few more details on its plans for the wearable technology market with a family of devices dubbed “Fossil Q.”

Fossil says it still plans to offer a round-faced Android Wear watch in time for the holiday season. There’s also a smart bracelet and a “connected non-display watch,” which we assume will look like a pretty standard wristwatch with some sensors inside. Those last two options will apparently support iOS and Windows smartphones along with Android thanks to an in-house companion app.

All three devices will work with Fossil’s specialized app for tracking a user’s activity and managing notifications. Of course, the Android Wear watch will run Google’s full software along with third-party apps. As for the bracelet, Fossil says it plans to offer a variety of designs for men and women.

The company faces some tough competition with its new wearables. The market is already flooded with Android Wear devices, along with the Apple Watch, Pebble’s lineup and activity trackers from everyone else.
