    Fossil Q Men's Gen 3 Explorist Stainless Steel and Leather Smartwatch, Color: Rose Gold-Tone, Blue (Model: FTW4002)

    • I enjoy receiving notifications on the screen of my watch when my phone is harder to get to, and it's great to have the option to use it to control my music player, give me notifications on my steps for the day, brief overviews of the articles that I've just received on my phone, as well as callers and text messages that've recently come through, to name just a few features
    • As excited as I was to get this new offering from Fossil, though

    Fossil Q Men's Gen 3 Explorist Stainless Steel and Leather Smartwatch, Color: Rose Gold-Tone, Blue (Model: FTW4002)

    • Even though Amazon refers to this Explorist (copper watch with blue leather) as "men's", the watch looks more like a rose gold color to me, while the stainless steel silver Venture (which Amazon calls a "women's") looks more masculine to me
    • Very durable- Speaker (not included with Venture)- Two extra buttons for direct app links (not included with Venture)- Easy connectivity with other Android
    • Between the two, I prefer the Venture, even though Amazon refers to it as a "women's" watch

    Fossil Q Men's Gen 3 Explorist Stainless Steel and Leather Smartwatch, Color: Rose Gold-Tone, Blue (Model: FTW4002)

    • This is a nice watch and I like the appearance and features
    • Smart watches are an interesting technology and they have some neat features depending on the brand and on the platform
    • Probably the most important feature the Explorist has that Venture lacks is a speaker
    • The center dial with the customizable knobs on the top and bottom are a nice feature.
    • The best feature that I found I loved was the reminder feature

    Fossil Q Men's Gen 3 Explorist Stainless Steel and Leather Smartwatch, Color: Rose Gold-Tone, Blue (Model: FTW4002)

    • Prior to this watch, I had the Q Marshal, and I think they were buying leftover screens from Motorola for that one (which did have the flat tire).The screen is clear and easy to read in bright sunlight
    • It's quick, has a nice screen, and has the same color combo as my phone case
    • The screen is crystal clear and the watch faces are very high end looking

    Fossil Q Men's Gen 3 Explorist Stainless Steel and Leather Smartwatch, Color: Rose Gold-Tone, Blue (Model: FTW4002)

    • I liked the way the watch itself looks
    • I liked the way the watch looked and the metal band
    • As excited as I was to get this new offering from Fossil, though
  • Reviews around price (5.00 of 5)

    Fossil Q Men's Gen 3 Explorist Stainless Steel and Leather Smartwatch, Color: Rose Gold-Tone, Blue (Model: FTW4002)

    • The price of this watch feels like a steal
    • Well worth that price
    • I've never really been taken with FitBits or Apple Watches because they're a bit more sporty-looking than suits my taste, and the price for something that's more athletic-looking than every day elegant, or better suited to my personal style, was enough to turn me off from buying one previously

    Fossil Q Men's Gen 3 Explorist Stainless Steel and Leather Smartwatch, Color: Rose Gold-Tone, Blue (Model: FTW4002)

    • Paired with the 22mm Stainless Steel Link Buckle Watch
    • Even though Amazon refers to this Explorist (copper watch with blue leather) as "men's", the watch looks more like a rose gold color to me, while the stainless steel silver Venture (which Amazon calls a "women's") looks more masculine to me
    • I also ordered and tried out one of Fintie's Milanese loop adjustable magnet-closure smart watch bands (Gear S3 Frontier / Classic Watch Band, Fintie 22mm Milanese Loop Adjustable Stainless Steel Replacement Strap Bands for Samsung Gear S3 Classic / S3 Frontier Smart Watch - Rose Gold) which did NOT fit properly

    Fossil Q Men's Gen 3 Explorist Stainless Steel and Leather Smartwatch, Color: Rose Gold-Tone, Blue (Model: FTW4002)

    • It's such an amazing piece of technology
    • This is a great piece of hardware to showcase this technology
    • While I can't say that, after owning this for just a few days, I have the answers to each of those questions, I can say that I find my new Fossil Q to be a fun new piece of technology to play around with

    Fossil Q Men's Gen 3 Explorist Stainless Steel and Leather Smartwatch, Color: Rose Gold-Tone, Blue (Model: FTW4002)

    • This is the Best looking and functional smartwatch that use Android 2.0 I love it and the battery life last me for the whole day and longer.
    • I wanted something nice looking that I could wear to work and didn’t care for the look of Apple Watch/Fitbit
    • The easiest thing to do with the watch is to change the face and there are 30 to choose from so you can get a “fresh look” when you feel like doing something different
    • It's not ridiculous looking, but it definitely isn't demure
    • I replaced that (a hassle since it uses proprietary hinges), and then I had a cool looking and comfortable watch

    Fossil Q Men's Gen 3 Explorist Stainless Steel and Leather Smartwatch, Color: Rose Gold-Tone, Blue (Model: FTW4002)

    • I also ordered and tried out one of Fintie's Milanese loop adjustable magnet-closure smart watch bands (Gear S3 Frontier / Classic Watch Band, Fintie 22mm Milanese Loop Adjustable Stainless Steel Replacement Strap Bands for Samsung Gear S3 Classic / S3 Frontier Smart Watch - Rose Gold) which did NOT fit properly
    • It's assuredly intended as a man's watch--both because of the size of the display and the very good quality leather band
    • That left it with the ends sticking straight out from the sides of the watch case, fixed in place as the ends would be if you were to open the band up completely and lay your watch flat against a surface
    • I like the band in particular, though I suspect that like any other leather band it will eventually wear out
    • As excited as I was to get this new offering from Fossil, though
