An extension of your Smart Phone

Looking down at your wrist to check the time on your is an action that many people do without thinking – however, before wearing a wrist watch became second nature, we would have to rifle through our pockets to check an old fashioned pocket watch. Talk about old school!

Think about how many times you reach into your pocket or handbag; fumbling around compartments, coats and trouser pockets to find your smartphone to check your emails, messages or notifications a day. With a Smart Watch, the awkwardness of trying to reach your phone at the bottom of your bag to see who has text you is eliminated. You can check up on your notifications with as much ease as checking the time. With the Tag Connected, for example you can check the weather, the latest news, or your email with a simple swipe.

Less time spent on your Phone

We read in the news time after time how nowadays we are all living life through our smart phones. Sometimes we can go a whole day glued to the screen!

With a smart watch, as well as easily peeking to check your messages, you can stay informed and up to date with your digital life without your phone constantly being in your hand.

Models such as the Fossil Q Marshal Smart Watch enable your notifications pop up on the screen - just like on your smart phone, so you can easily check to see who’s sent you an email, without the glare of a bright smart phone interrupting what you’re doing. You can then decide whether to respond, or leave it till later – perfect for ignoring those junk emails and nuisance calls!
