The promise of the hybrid smartwatch comes true with the introduction of the Fossil Smartwatch HR.

I have absolutely been a fan of hybrid smartwatches since the days of Martian and Cogito as I for some reason can’t let go of a mechanical watch face. Fossil has in many ways answered my dreams with the introduction of their new hybrid HR smartwatch.

The Fossil Smartwatch HR is basically a normal watch with a fully functional e-ink screen. The benefit of the screen is that now you are able to display fully articulated notifications and other various smartwatch features without sacrificing “real” watch functionality. Also the e-ink screen gives the watch amazing battery life as it is advertised as being about two weeks.

This certainly seems like it’s perfectly suited for those of us that want a full smartwatch but not at the sacrifice of “normal” watch features. If are like me and find the watch quite fascinating, then check out the full specs at Also take a look at this review by Mr. Mobile.
