The Fossil Q Wander is one of two new Android Wear watches that have been released by the famous time piece maker, and the other model is that of the Fossil Q Marshal. What immediately sets these two smartwatches apart is their apparent sizes, as the Wander is clearly made for those who have daintier wrists as compared to the larger, bulkier Marshal. In the standard packaging, you will be able to get a silicone strap to go with the watch’s face. However, there are also leather and stainless steel options available, if you don’t mind paying a bit more.
The Fossil Q Wander is Smaller Than the Q Marshal
The Fossil Q Wander presents a sleeker and more elegant design than its counterpart. Therefore, it makes for a more subtle appearance when worn on the wrist, unlike the Marshal that attracts a bit of attention to itself. Furthermore, because of its smaller size, it won’t drown those with smaller wrists in a bed of casing. Hence, it might be safe to say that this particular model is leaning more towards the female market.
When worn, the Q Wander will sit comfortably on your wrist. However, it should be noted that the flat plastic rear has no heart-rate monitor. Still, it is nice to know that the device is water resistant, so you can bring it inside the shower if you so desire, or when you want to take a quick dip in the pool.
As for its screen, just like its brother, it is bright and very clear. The information being displayed on the watch’s face is very easy to read, despite the fact that it is smaller than the other model. Furthermore, the watch comes with a number of faces pre-installed which means that you can immediately customize it right out of the bat. Also, it even has a feature wherein you can program a certain watch face for a specific portion of the day.
It should be noted, however, that the face is not fully circular, as it sports the same “flat tire” chunk found at its base. If you think that this design choice is familiar, it is because the Moto 360 has the same offering.
While the Fossil Q Wander is not exactly the smallest smartwatch in the market, it has more slimmed-down proportions as compared to other wearable devices, especially when you take a look at the Q Marshal. Even though it presents a great design and above-average performance, at the end of the day, it doesn’t win any awards against the competition because of the lack of added functionality.
