And now, Fossil is taking the stage.Fossil is bringing its watch know-how to Android Wear with their new Fossil Q Founder watch. Fossil knows how to make and sell watches.

The face of a watch holds as much of its personality as its case and band, so Fossil created a few custom watch faces for the Q Founder. Currently there are just six of these designs, but even the more modernized options with digital clocks speak to Fossil’s vintage aesthetic.

The software glue that holds everything together is Android Wear. There’s apps for Android and iOS although using it with an iPhone is a more restrictive experience. So it doesn’t let you do things like reply to texts or access Google’s Android Wear apps
