If you’re in the market for a fashionable wearable device, the Fossil Q Venture is the ideal choice, boasting a stylish exterior with impressive barebones smartwatch features and specs.
Stylish and Water-Resistant Chassis
The Q Venture is Fossil’s very first fully round display smartwatch, which is a huge improvement over its predecessor, the Q Wander, with its unappealing flat-tire screen. As for the display’s quality, the Q Venture is bright and clear; all thanks to its OLED display. Despite its small display size, the icons and text are easy to read. The Q Venture also comes with over 30 exclusive watch faces, providing users a range of options which you don’t see often in other Android Wear brands.
The Fossil Q Venture also comes with a 42mm-metal chassis with a thickness of 11.5mm which offers a sophisticated look that is just the right size for smaller wrists. Unlike other wearables, the Fossil Q Venture doesn’t sport a heart rate monitor, although it has an impressive IP67 rating which allows you to wear while taking a bath or shower. It can also endure being submerged in 1 meter of freshwater for up to 30 minutes.
Smooth Performance and Interface
The Fossil Q Venture houses a Snapdragon 2100 processor with 512 MB of RAM. This is powerful enough to run Android Wear 2.0 with no issues on screen, letting you open apps quickly and navigate the interface easily. It also has a 4 GB of internal storage so you can save songs on the watch. With your Bluetooth headset on, you can listen to your favorite tracks without having to use your phone. The storage is also useful for downloading great apps and games; all thanks to Android Wear 2.0’s built-in Wi-Fi capability, allowing users to download directly from the watch.
Impressive Battery Life
The Q Venture has a battery life of up to 24 hours from a single charge, although this may be shorter if you always turn on the display. It also comes with wireless charging that allows you to easily recharge it. However, the Q Venture lacks advanced features like GPS and NFC but it makes up for these by having other remarkable features such as its streamlined interface and large internal storage.
