The Fos­sil Q Crewmaster aims to of­fer most of the con­ve­niences of smart­watches and fit­ness trackers, while re­main­ing the classy and sim­ple time­piece that most peo­ple are com­fort­able wear­ing. The Crewmaster is not your tra­di­tional smart­watch. It is per­haps bet­ter de­scribed as an ana­logue fash­ion watch with smart ca­pa­bil­i­ties. That means; no dig­i­tal dis­play, no touch­screen and no Wi-Fi. It does, how­ever, fea­ture Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity. There’s also ac­tiv­ity track­ing which in­cludes sleep pat­terns, alarms and no­ti­fi­ca­tions that are de­liv­ered through vi­bra­tions of a spin­ning minute or sub-eye hand. It fea­tures a ded­i­cated but­ton for ac­cess­ing smart­phone func­tion­al­ity like ring­ing a paired smart­phone, tak­ing a photo, or con­trol­ling mu­sic. As it takes less power to drive these fea­tures, the Fos­sil Q can last up to 6 months on a reg­u­lar coin cell bat­tery.
