THREE CLEVER WAYS

TO SPEND LESS THAN $600 ON A WATCH

GQ (Australia) - - WATCH -

FOS­SIL ‘Q CREW­MAS­TER’ You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to Fos­sil smart­watches, with four new mod­els in the ana­logue range to de­lib­er­ate over. In no par­tic­u­lar or­der, the ‘Q Mate’, ‘Q Crew­mas­ter’, ‘Q Gazer’ and ‘Q Tai­lor’. Each op­er­ates on non­recharge­able, in­ter­nal bat­ter­ies and con­nects via Blue­tooth. Our favourite is the sail­ing-in­spired, vin­tage-look ‘Q Crew­mas­ter’. $279; har­veynor­man.com.au SAM­SUNG ‘GEAR S3’ It has the look and feel of a real watch, only it’s smarter. Aside from telling the time, a sim­ple twist of the bezel re­sponds to calls, reads mes­sages and ac­cesses apps. It also boasts ad­vanced fit­ness track­ing, a built-in GPS tracker and is wa­ter re­sis­tance to 1.5 me­ters – so a hit with any ac­tive types. (See p93 for the lat­est phone to sync it to.) From$597; har­veynor­man.com.au NIXON ‘THE MIS­SION’ Any­one into skate­board­ing or snow­board­ing will know about the Cal­i­for­ni­abased com­pany’s range of ul­tra-rugged sporty wrist­wear. And ‘The Mis­sion’ rep­re­sents its first foray into smart­watches. It of­fers 100m wa­ter re­sis­tance, the high­est of any smart­watch cur­rently avail­able, and its apps in­clude surf and snow con­di­tions. $599; nixon.com
