The Q Crewmaster comes with a huge stainless steel body, big buttons, strong straps, and chunky lugs. But what else could make the Q Crewmaster the ideal hybrid smartwatch for everyone? Let’s find out.
The Fossil Q Crewmaster Hybrid Smartwatch is definitely huge. It has a 46mm round stainless steel case and 14mm thick. The stainless-steel build suggests that the watch is going to be a bit heavy which is exactly true once you wear it on your wrist. The one I tested is with had a silicone strap. The Q Crewmaster has 22mm interchangeable straps available. You can easily change the strap with a different one anytime you want. I enjoyed my time with the silicon strap as I find it very comfortable throughout the day.
As a hybrid smartwatch, the Q Crewmaster is able to count your steps, measure the distance you traveled, and get a good estimate of how much calories you’ve burned for a day. All this information will be pushed back to the Fossil Q app. The watch also tracks your sleep when you wear it while sleeping.
The Fossil Q Crewmaster Hybrid Smartwatch can handle notifications from your smartphone. It can handle notifications such as SMS, calls, calendar reminders, emails, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Line, Snapchat, Viber, WeChat, Instagram, Uber, and Skype among others.
As for fitness tracking, the Fossil Q Crewmaster Hybrid Smartwatch works without replicating the experience you get from the fitness tracking offered by smartwatches. The watch wants to deliver a more targeted experience for people who don’t really want or need a smartwatch.
The Q Crewmaster’s design and look is definitely fantastic. It’s looks is already a big bargain for its price. And if you factor in its functionalities, you have a watch that has the ability to beat true smartwatches out there. Simply put, the Q Crewmaster worked splendidly for me and I’ve no reason as to why not recommed this watch to others.
