Fossil announced two new Android Wear devices this morning, both featuring the company’s first usage of full circle displays. Up to this point, you may have noticed that everything in Fossil’s Q lineup had the “flat tire” appearance, which is where their ambient light sensors are placed. On the new Q Venture and Q Explorist, that has been removed.
The specs for both devices are pretty similar to other Android Wear watches on the market. The Q Explorist (featured right in the image above) features a case size of 44mm with 12mm of thickness, complete with 4GB of onboard storage and 512MB of RAM. The Q Venture (featured left), which is the smaller model, has a case size of 42mm and 12mm of thickness.
Both come with a IP67 rating, estimated battery life of “all day,” Snapdragon Wear 2100 processors, and Bluetooth 4.1. Do note, though, neither has NFC, so no mobile payments.
If you are interested in either of these pieces, you’ll be happy to learn that each comes in a variety of looks. The Explorist is available in Silver, Rose Gold, or Smoke, while the Venture comes in Silver, Rose Gold, or Rose Gold with crystals.
The Q Explorist and Q Venture are up for pre-order through Fossil’s website, starting at $255.
