You may not know it, but Amazon is celebrating its Prime Day today, and the celebration is all about its Prime customers who have made the most of their Prime service (and take advantage of their free shipping, too). The retailer has a number of deals available today, but if you've had an interest in the Fossil Q Founder for some time, you might want to sit up on the edge of your seat.
For today only, Amazon is discounting the Fossil Q Founder by 30% for Amazon Prime customers, bringing the price of the device down [from $279.99] to $196. If the near-$300 price tag was a turnoff to you, you'll be pleased to pay slightly below $200 for the Q Founder (and, as an Amazon Prime customer, get free shipping).
The Fossil Q Founder features a 1.5-inch, circular (don't forget the black bar at the bottom of the display) low-temperature-polysilicon (LTPS) liquid crystal diode (LCD) display, with a screen resolution of 360 x 326 (240ppi pixel density), a 400mAh battery, 4GB of storage, and an Intel Atom processor (unspecified). The Q Founder's screen resolution is more than sufficient for such a tiny display, though we don't blame you if you're more in love with Samsung's circular Gear S2 smartwatch (which, by the way, is also being discounted by $75 for Amazon Prime Day). The Q Founder does have wireless charging, which, like the fellow Android Wear-powered Moto 360 and the Tizen-powered Gear S2, definitely makes it a smartwatch worth picking up (even if Fossil thinks the Q Founder iPhone compatibility is the most rewarding capability of the device). The Q Founder has received Android Wear 1.5 recently, a taste of the sweet Android 2.0 update that's right around the corner.
Now, for those who aren't Prime customers, you have the opportunity to become one. You can try Prime for free under certain conditions and still be eligible for this 30% deal. There's much to commend Amazon Prime to you, including free shipping and exclusive deals and discounts -- and, of course, major days like Prime Day.
Well, the day is only so long, and there only remain a few good ones before this Fossil Q Founder deal is gone. Hit up Amazon and get ready to celebrate with Amazon.
