Fossil's fifth-gen smartwatches showcase Wear OS at its best (Update: four months later)

Google's Wear OS platform is in a bit of a weird place. The operating system itself is still being periodically updated with new features and improvements, like the Tiles function that was released in May, but the third-party app library is still minimal, and Qualcomm has been slow to improve the underlying hardware. Still, Wear OS isn't going anywhere, and the closest thing to a flagship watch is the new fifth-generation Fossil Q lineup.

[Update: Deal is live again] Grab one of Fossil's latest Wear OS smartwatches for $200 ($75 off)

Fossil is one of the most active brands when it comes to developing Wear OS smartwatches. Its products are stylish and discreet but still feature advanced hardware, including heart rate sensors and GPS chips on the latest models. The Sport series features the newer Snapdragon Wear 3100 chip, which makes it one of the snappiest watches around. If you'd rather boast a more traditional-looking timepiece, the Gen 4 Q Explorist and Q Venture are what you need, but may be slightly behind when it comes to performance as they're based on the older Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset.

Fossil's Android Wear-Powered Smartwatch Is Called The Q Founder, Will Launch October 25th Starting At $275

Fossil has officially given the Android Wear-powered device that it's making in conjunction with Intel a name—the Q Founder.

As you might expect, it's a large and ostentatious creation. And unlike most other circular smartwatches these days, it comes with a Moto 360-style flat tire. Fossil doesn't seem too keen on showing off this particular watch, a pattern that led to confusion the last time we covered this device.

Its most recent blog post makes no mention of Android Wear and instead shows off its other connected electronics: the Q Grant (a more traditional looking watch capable of delivering alerts) and two activity trackers, the Q Dreamer and Q Reveler.

Fossil had models sport three new Fossil Q devices at the Baja East and Dion Lee fashion shows in New York last week, because unlike the other guys in the Android Wear game, it's an accessory-maker first.
