WHO, WHAT, WEARABLE Fossil Q Venture Fossil’s ambitious goal for 2017, which it publicly announced in March, is to debut at least 300 hybrid and touch screen–connected styles by Dec. 31. Its wearable releases for splashy fashion brands including Emporio Armani, Michael Kors, and Kate Spade typically get the most press. But some of the company’s best-built devices have been developed for its in-house label. Among those is a new touch-screen smartwatch, the Q Venture, which combines the functionality of a notifier, an activity tracker, and an old-school digital watch. What We Liked: The Q Venture comes in a few color combos, but we especially like the design impact of the “gold and sparkle” model, which marries the chunkiness of a men’s watch with the glamour of a dressy timepiece. Through the Fossil app its face is customizable—options range from high-tech to analog.
