This tracker is different in some major ways…

Finally, being tech-savvy doesn’t mean you have to look like a walking computer or a villain from an Eighties Sci-Fi thriller. The new range of hybrid smartwatches bring a hightly-functioning tracker and a stylish timepiece together, so you can stay connected discreetly – even at work, or when you’re out on the town.

That saviness also doesn’t mean you should be stuck with tech that isn’t suited to your specific needs. Now you can focus on – and elevate – your own fitness goals with the Fossil Q app. Yup, it works hard, so you don’t have to. Here’s exactly how it does that:

It’s Got Customisable Buttons

You get to choose from a huge selection of shortcuts and assign them to each of the buttons on your hybrid smartwatch. All it takes is three simple steps…

1/ Press device at the bottom of the app screen or press one of the three shortcuts shown on the home page.

2/ Choose the shortcut you’d like to add to your hybrid smartwatch.

3/ Select the button you’d like the shortcut assigned to. Done.

Activity Tracking Just Got Cooler

Staying motivated is a tricky thing – but it helps when someone’s got your back. Get this: once your goal is reached, the hybrid smartwatch will actually clap in celebration of your achievement. It’s basically your own cheerleader, wrapped up in a cute package.

The mechanics are also really simple: to check in on your step count for the day, you can access your daily summary directly from the home screen by swiping to the left twice. For a detailed view, including intensity, calories and weekly progress, press STATS at the bottom of the app screen. Check out the .


But Wait, There’s More: Customise Your Notifications

You can use the app to customise the notifications you receive and how you receive them. Here’s the low-down:

1/ Press the NOTIFICATIONS button at the bottom of the screen.

2/ Choose the number you’d like to assign the and/or app to.

3/ To add the first person or app to your notification list, scroll through the list or search. Once you find what you’re looking for, press the +, then press SAVE. You will now receive notifications when a calls, texts or emails you, or if an app sends you a notification.

Staying connected on your terms (at last!) is reason enough to move this to the top of every fit girl’s wish list.

Need even more motivation? Here’s proof that even celebs will do crazy things to reach their step goals.
