Fossil Q Motion fitness tracker has style in mind

Fashion brand Fossil may have purchased its own island of Misfit toys back in November, but it hasn’t stopped the firm pumping out the wearables.

On Thursday, the company announced announced the Fossil Q Motion, a style-focused fitness tracker that closely resembles the Misfit Ray revealed at CES 2016.

Just like the Ray, the $95 (around £65) Q Motion features a metal tracking tube attached to a colourful band and is able to track sleep and movement.

However, the cylindrical portion can’t be removed and worn around a lanyard as it can on the Misfit Ray.

The Android and iOS-compatible Q Motion is also able to deliver notifications from your smartphone via an LED light and a vibration.

Buyers will be able to use the companion app to customise a button to locate a phone, play music or activate the phone’s camera shutter.

The device, which goes on sale sometime this summer, has a six month battery life and is water resistant to 50m.

On launch there’ll be a range of colour options for the tube and the band, while leather and metal strap options will be available later in the year. No word yet on UK availability.

The wearable joins a host of trackers released under the Q banner. The company also has an Android Wear smartwatch, the Fossil Q Founder, which went on sale at the end of last year.
