Fossil has officially launched pre-sales for its Q Explorist and Q Venture smartwatches. Both devices can be picked up from Fossil's online shop, with multiple variations of each watch including different colours – as seen in the gallery. They will start at $255 with the leather band, while the metal band will kick that price up to $275. These are pre-sale prices, which means they will go up once they are launched to the public; increasing to $296 and $315 respectively.

The Fossil Q Explorist and Q Venture are both running on Android Wear 2.0, which is probably no surprise as there likely won’t be any more Android Wear watches launching with older software at this point. Both watches also feature a completely round display, making them Fossils first two smartwatches to carry this particular design trait.

The Q Explorist and Q Venture will both come powered by a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor from Qualcomm, with 4GB of internal storage and 512MB of RAM. The Q Explorist and Q Venture are Fossil’s thinnest smartwatches so far, measuring at just 11.3mm, while the case diameter measures at 42mm for the Q Venture and 44mm for the Q Explorist. Both watches also come with an IP67 rating so they’re resistant to dust and water, which puts them on par with many of the other smartwatches out there. The Q

The Q Explorist will be available with leather straps in Navy, Brown, and Luggage colours, while the metal bands come in Silver and Smoke. The Q Venture, on the other hand, will offer the leather option in Sand with a Rose Gold watch case, while the metal options include plain stainless steel and Rose Gold. Fossil doesn't specifically mention when the watches will launch officially, but the website for each watch variation shows that they will be ready to ship out by September 24th, so this is likely the launch date.

Basically, it would be wise to pick the Fossil Q watches up during pre-sale – if you want to save some money.
