All the usual Fossil hybrid features are there. This means you will find basic activity tracking, along with smartphone notifications for texts, emails or calls, music and remote camera control. The watch also automatically updates to the correct time and date. All this is tied into Skagen’s iOS and Android friendly app, where you can tweak your alert and function preferences.
There are a range of colors to choose from including Gold, Rose Gold, Gray and Silver. There is also a choice between Silver and Rose Gold mesh straps or Grey and Black leather straps.
Finally, the watch is water resistant down to 3ATM so it should survive the occasional splash, but don’t plan on taking it swimming with you. The timepiece comes with a standard watch battery which ensures you don’t need to worry about charging it each night.
The T-Bar hybrid collection is available now from Skagen’s website. Prices start at just around $225.
