Firstly: the instructions and description given in the packaging are ABYSMAL. There are icons around the edge of the box giving oblique clues as to what it can do, but they're not hugely informative, which is fair enough, but the box contains two leaflets - one a quick start guide, the other warranty information, both in multiple languages and with very little helpful information at all - it literally doesn't say what sort of battery it uses, to give you an idea of the level of information. It is necessary to go to the website given in the leaflet, and then navigate your way to the 'support' page for the Hybrid Q Grant watch in order to get anything remotely useful. This is frankly ridiculous. There is an app which controls the watch features - search for 'Fossil Q' on the Google Play store or on itunes if you want a look at it beforehand, this gives a decent overview of the features, plus there is a video on their website if you can find it (harder than you'd think....)
The watch itself is very nice looking, with a good quality black leather strap and a smart black face with silver numerals and hands, with a small dial near the bottom with a little dial which can indicate other features. The face is really quite large, and would suit men or women who could tolerate a large watch. This is a 'hybrid' smartwatch in the sense that it can indicate things controlled by the app, but without a screen this is really quite limited. It can be set to indicate when certain people are phoning you, for example, but does so by making the watch hands whizz round to a clock position that you have previously designated (e.g. if you set 'mum' to number 4, then the watch hands will go to IV), which is honestly a bit weird, and requires more effort remembering what you have set to each number than just looking at your phone would take! It is also necessary to keep the app running in the background on your phone constantly to have this feature working. More usefully, you can set each of the three press buttons on the right hand side of the watch face to different functions such as 'take a photo', which works well with my phone, although there has been the odd accidental photo incident! This feature is useful and I like it, whereas the number thing is just odd. I have had no issues connecting my phone via bluetooth, and the app is well laid out and seems reasonably accurate with its step tracking feature. It also can monitor sleep if you wear it all night, although it is too large for me to be able to comfortably do this so I have not tested it.
I am unclear why the Amazon listing for this item (at the time of writing) states that it contains a USB charger, as the model I have been sent is NOT rechargeable, it uses a lithium battery, which lasts around four months according to the instructions. You have to look in the app to see what sort of replacement battery to get (seriously, why can't they just put it in the packaging!), but they are the type which are reasonably widely available, and can easily be changed as there is a coin slot in the back of the watch body. This seems quite strange to me - I also have a Nokia smartwatch, which has a USB charging cradle, and a little screen, and checks heart rate, which lasts nearly that long. The straps are also interchangeable, again easily. It is 'splashproof' according to the website, so cannot be immersed for swimming etc.
As a 'normal' watch it's very handsome, and some of the 'smart' features are handy - vibrating alarms, and the ability to assign a camera button to it, to give specific examples - but as a smartwatch it is flawed. Also the lack of proper instructions and even SPECIFICATIONS is shockingly bad. Fortunately the current price is set low enough for this to be almost acceptable! Looks great, but if you want more than minimal features (and are unwilling to keep buying new batteries) then you may want a 'smarter' watch.
