    First, its a beautiful watch. It fits fine on my wrist. The step tracking is very functional and I like how they used the hands and buttons to interact with a smartphone and notify you. There is one major flaw to this (at least this specific version) watch, and that is the numbers are a bit darker on the real watch than in the picture. This means you have much less contrast between the background and the numbers than what is implied in the picture. This makes the watch VERY difficult to read in low light. The hands do emit a glow at night, helping to read, however if there is any ambient light, say from a street light or lights from other cars, the hands will not emit their light. Coupled with the lack of contrast in the watch face, it becomes impossible to read. Another breaking issue is although Fossil did a great job in HOW they show you the current day of the month, they did so by creating a very thin ring that fits between the larger interior face numbers and the numbers just inside the bezel. This very thin ring has the numbers 1 thru 31 to signify the date. Unfortunately, they suffer from the same contrast issue and coupled with the very tiny font used, its difficult to read even under direct light and often my eyes get them confused with the minute marks, or 24-hourly marks on the ring just inside the bezel.It has a great function where you can assign each face number to an individual, and if you get a text or call from that person, the watch will let you know by going to that number. For example, my wife was assigned to the number 1, and my parents the number 2. If my wife calls, the watch will point both hands to the number 1 to indicate who called. If my parents call, the hands point to 2. Its actually kinda clever.The bottom button serves as a multi-function control button for your smartphone that you can set to do one of three different things: 1) Emit a tone to find the phone, 2) control your music player (iffy support by Spotify), and 3) take a picture.I also had no problems whatsover with the bluetooth pairing. Though the vibration alarm was a bit anemic and failed to wake me (as opposed to an older Fitbit charge, or Garmin Vivofit which could), it was a very welcomed addition.So, TL;DR, great watch killed by its weaknesses in low light. Ended up returning it, but would seriously consider an alternate Fossil Q.

    I’ve always loved fossil watches growing up and I decided to treat myself to this hybrid, I like that it can track my steps and sleep, I can also control my music with a touch of a button. I would wear this to work where I cannot be on my phone most of the time and whenever I get a call or a text I can see who it came from out of my six contacts on the watch

    Nice watch looks good on the wrist. But with in 3 hours of wearing It one if the buttons came off. Horrible especially for a watch over 100.00 dollars.Contacted amazon and I am getting a replacement will update my review after I receive the new one.Update: received the replacement. So far so good again still looks very nice.
