The future financial industry will look very different from the current one. Wearables continue to make their impact, albeit not everyone finds them as convenient. Fossil is introducing a wave of new smartwatches with Google Pay support. These devices will also be able to monitor users’ heart rates.
Paying for goods and services with a smartwatch is becoming a lot easier. More devices are coming to market with built-in payment support. Fossil has been one of the market leaders in this regard. The firm seeks to bring Google Pay to as many people as possible through its new line of smartwatches.
Fossil Continues to Roll out new Products
Known as the Fossil Q line, the devices offer several new features. These products are mainly targeted at consumers who dislike sacrificing fashion for function. All watches are powered by Wear OS by Google. Under the hood, they support Heart Rate Tracking, NFC, Untethered GPS, and Swim Proof Functionality. It only takes one full hour of charging to ensure the devices last a full day without interruptions.
Fossil EVP Steve Evans adds:
“Since our entry to the smartwatch market, it has always been our first priority to be nimble and adapt quickly to innovations-both in technology and design. We know a lot of watch wearers have both a traditional watch and some kind of an activity tracker— by adding significant features in terms of technology, without compromising our design standards, this new generation of smartwatch will provide consumers with one device that fits all of their needs. Ensuring the best possible experience for our customers has always been important, which drove the innovation of this product; we cannot wait to see the consumer response around the globe.’’
Venturing into the smartwatch market has been very successful for Fossil. There is a growing demand for tech presented in a beautiful and functional format. Smartwatches seem to fit that demand quite well. Clients can customize their watches as they see fit, as there are many different opportunities to explore. It is another step toward making wearable payments a lot more convenient.
