In the mood to pick up an Android Wear smartwatch? We've seen the Fossil Q Founder discounted 30% in honor of Amazon Prime Day, but fewer discounts along the same lines. The Q Founder has held its price rather stubbornly in spite of the fact that, as you know, smartwatches that come with significant discounts gather significant attention regardless of whether a holiday lies ahead or not.
Fossil's Q Founder hasn't seen too many deals, but it's available today at an astonishing 43% off -- down from $295 to $167.99 by way of Amazon. The brown leather Fossil Q Founder can be had for even cheaper ($154.99), down from $275.
For those who need a refresher, the Fossil Q Founder features a 1.5-inch, circular LTPS display with a screen resolution of 360 x 326p, a 400mAh battery, 4GB of storage, an Intel Atom processor, and wireless charging. And, as if you really wanted to remember, the Fossil Q Founder has the same black bar at the bottom of the display that the Moto 360 has (known as a "flat tire").The device has also been updated to Android Wear 1.5 for now, with the device eligible for the upcoming Android Wear 2.0 update that Google is said to be readying for a Q1 2017 release alongside of its two upcoming Pixel smartwatches.
Additionally, the Q Founder has also had problems pairing with the iPhone 7 -- so you may want to steer clear of the sale altogether unless you're willing to chance it. Sadly, iPhone pairing is the one feature Fossil plays up in order to encourage sales of the Q Founder; if iPhone pairing is impossible, what other capabilities can Fossil look to?
Well, whatever you decide, you have about 5 hours to take advantage of this offer. So, I wouldn't waste time; get on over to Amazon and grab your new Q Founder smartwatch today. Come back over here afterward and let us know you picked up the Q Founder.
