Fossil is known to be one of the finest Global Luxury Accessories maker and no doubt their products are amazing. They have some of the best-looking timepieces in the market which is usually preferred by many over the others. But the only area where they didn’t tap into was smartwatches, at least not in India. So wearable segment in India was kind of missing the whole luxury quotient. But now Fossil has decided to put an end to it.
Fossil group has now entered the wearable segment in India and they have announced a range of connected devices that include a variety of different kinds of stuff. The range consists of smart watches, hybrid watches and fitness trackers. All these products are offered by six of the company’s licensed brands. The list includes Fossil Q, Michael Kors Connected, Skagen Connected, Chaps, Emporio Armani and Misfit. All these products were already available in the international market but now this is the first time that these products will be readily available in India.
The company official reported that the Indian market is very passionate about the technology and are quick to adopt the latest and the greatest in this world. They believe that the country will continue to be a key market for them to grow. And well we do hope that we will more and more new products in the future as well. And looking at the lineup of the devices that they have launched here, it certainly looks so. So now let’s talk about the different offerings which they have here for us.
The Fossil’s Q series of watches are one of the best ones when it comes to the luxury offerings in the world of smartwatches. This series has two devices named the Q Wander and the Q Marshal.

And both of these devices features an always on display for an easy access of the information.
