Everyone was fascinated when Fossil revealed it would make Android Wear devices. When all is said and done, it makes "real" watches, so maybe its smartwatches would be a cut above.
All our changes to date have been a direct response to our customer's feedback. We have learned very much from our initial launch in the smart accessories market." says, Fossil's chief creative officer, Jill Elliot.
With added performance boost of the Snapdragon 2100 processor, The Fossil Q Marshal is a great looking smartwatch.
The Fossil Q Marshal features a 1.4-inch circular LED display with 320x290 pixels, tab bit lower than that of Moto 360's 1.5-inch 360x330 pixels LCD display. This, however, shouldn't make a difference at all. The touch screen is easily viewable in bright daylight.
But what bothered us was the flat tire display and the extra screen bezels. The fossil could've made an effort to remove the bezels and make the screen look slightly bigger and immersive. The Huawei Watch's circular display still holds the crown for us with its 1.4-inch 400x400 Super AMOLED tech, according to Gadgets Now.
The smartwatch is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 processor along with 512MB RAM and 4GB of built-in storage. The Q Wander and Q Marshal both have a 45mm case, just a touch smaller than the Q Founder.
That's different than what Fossil told us a few months ago supposed to be 46mm watch. There aren't any new images, so we can't be sure what has changed. Previously, the Q Wander had a slimmer design with smaller lugs, and the Q Marshal is a bit more robust looking which also have speakers, standard interchangeable straps, and a suite of activity tracking apps from Under Armor and UP built-in, mentioned from Android Police.
The Fossil Q Marshal runs on Android Wear, compatible with Android and iPhone mobiles. Moreover to the Q collection line appears with an "always on" display which allows you to see the time and missed notifications at a glimpse.
