    I reviewed this product shortly after I received it, but as time went on I began to run into more and more problems with the device. I am leaving the body of the original review below for posterity.A few months into using the Fossil Q Grant, I began to have issues with the device maintaining connectivity to my phone. In order for the device to sync, I would have to repeatedly turn off/turn on Bluetooth. After a while, even this trick wouldn’t work; rebooting the phone and performing a hard reset on the device by removing and replacing the battery was the only thing that would get the device to reconnect. I contacted Fossil support multiple times for the issue, and received no solid answers as to what was wrong with the device. Further complicating the issue was the fact that the Fossil support team is apparently located overseas, and maintains hours that do not overlap with typical US business hours, as I only received emails from support after midnight EDT. After many of these back-and-forths, I gave up on getting my device fixed. I used the watch in this manner for a period of a few weeks until the step tracking began to fail as well, despite there being a brand-new battery in the watch. I ultimately gave this device up for a Misfit Ray and wear a regular analog watch alongside it.The watch is still a handsome timepiece, and if the smartwatch internals worked well it would be hands-down one of the best integrations of the technology on the market. Unfortunately, it seems that Fossil wasn’t ready to move into smartwatches at this time and as such have put out an inferior product that has apparently been discontinued. If you still want a hybrid smartwatch, I would recommend looking at Withings, as the Activite that my girlfriend owns has been going strong for well over a year.————-Prior Review————–This is a solid compromise between a full-blown smartwatch and a classic analog watch. I have owned both generations of the Moto 360, but I wanted a watch that didn’t look quite so “techy” while still giving me basic health tracking, notifications, and the like. The offerings from Fossil in this category all looked better in my opinion than watches from companies such as Withings in the same price range. This is still a little thicker than most analog watches, but it is not as thick as the Fossil touchscreen smartwatches, and the case and strap are both very comfortable. The notifications take a little getting used to; you assign contacts and apps to numbers, and the hands will swing to that number whenever a notification arrives. It does not notify you if you get a message from a group chat, so if you do a lot of texting with groups of people this will probably not suit you. The step tracking works well, and seems to fall in line with the numbers I was getting from both Google Fit and the Moto 360. The sleep tracking seems to work just fine, but to be honest I’m asleep while it’s working so who know’s how accurate it actually is! You can also use one of the buttons to perform a few select activities such as take a photo or control your music, but I’ve not had any reason to do so. All in all, this is a well-made watch with classic good looks that adds just a little something extra.

    Pros: Looks great, fits comfortably, provides alarm, second time zone, customized alerts ((when a specific contact calls/messages, the hands move to a preset number)) ,date indication, and the push button control randomly comes in very handy ((you set the bottom button to: a. ring loudly, b. control music, c. snap a picture)).Cons: the vibration on the watch is really weak, you pretty much have to be expecting the alarm/alert to notice it. Also, when setting up through the app, you have to choose “hybrid smartwatch” instead of the “grant,” which is mislabeled but not a huge issue. I noticed it caused a lot of frustration among other users/reviewers. Lastly, the step tracking accounts for about 75% of what other fitness trackers count.Personally, I love the watch. I don’t care for fancy apps or the step/sleep tracking. I like the look and simplified functionality. If I hear my phone receive a notification, I look at my watch (12 for my wife, 3 for family, 6 for any fb message) and determine whether I need to pull out my phone, or can just wait on whatever the notification was. I also lose my phone all the time around the house, so just pressing the button makes the phone bark at me loudly. Only giving it 4 stars as I was looking forward to the vibration alerts, but they are abysmally weak.

    After burning through several Fitbits, I’m more than happy with this watch. It does everything Fitbit does, but it also looks like a real watch and not just another screen.
