With the start of the CES 2016, Fossil today unveiled its newest addition to the smart wearable line, the Q54 Pilot. With the addition of Q54 Pilot, the line now includes three types of smartwatches: the Q Founder (display), Q Grant (non-display) and Q54 Pilot (non-display). The line also has two styles of activity trackers: the Q Reveler and Q Dreamer.
A smartwatch for analog watch lovers—the Q54 Pilot is inspired by vintage aviation and powered by connectivity. Designed using Fossil’s original Pilot 54 case and chronograph movement, this stainless steel wrist essential is a classic.
This new non-display smartwatch is a decidedly fashionable take on wearable tech allowing you to receive filtered LED color-coded or buzz notifications from your favorite contacts, apps, or keywords. It also tracks everything from steps to calories all while prompting you to complete weekly curiosity challenges. Fossil’s Q54 Pilot is engineered with Intel Innovation and compatible with Android and iOS operating systems. It will be available in stores in early Spring and will retail for $175-$215.
The Q Dreamer was introduced in Fall 2015 as the first activity tracker that looks like a bracelet (and goes with everything). It receives filtered notifications from your favorite contacts, apps, and keywords and tracks everything from steps to calories all while cueing you to complete creative weekly curiosity challenges. For Summer 2016, Fossil is adding two sophisticated new styles to the Q Dreamer collection: tortoiseshell and shimmer horn. These will be in available in stores in late Spring and retail for $145.
