      Even though it's not as heavy as I would have liked it to be, it still has a quality feel to it. The app is a little feature needy, but it gets the job done. I'm loving the sleep tracking feature too. I bought this watch on sale, but I don't know if the original price is justifiable. I've gotten several complements on it, it's a beautiful watch. The vibration on it isn't as strong as some, but I rarely miss a notification. All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase.

      Bluetooth does not work properly, because most of the time you have to be close to the phone to make the bluetooth work, and that makes no sense when what you want is to ring your lost phone in order to find it. The pairing process sometimes works, sometimes not. I have my watch for a month and I already have had to contact the costumer service twice to fix it. It is a long process, believe me: close apps, turn off your phone, take off your watch battery, etc, etc. I will return the watch and buy one from the competitors. These features don't worth the money!

      Still, I have to mention that it is a nice watch that would be great without the "smart" features.

      Great looking dive style watch

      Comments about Fossil Q Crewmaster Silicone-Strap Hybrid Smart Watch:

      I have an Apple Watch, but hate the fact that they don't look like a cool, regular watch. I always wondered why they couldn't create regular watches with smart functions. I don't use all the crazy apps on my smart watch, I simply like the notification that something is happening - this watch provides that. Easy set up via app, easy pairing on initial set up, looks cool. Doesn't have all the crazy apps and functions like a full on smart watch, but if you just need simple notifications, some basic fitness tracking, this is a really cool watch.

      Great Watch, but not for fitness enthusiasts

      Comments about Fossil Q Crewmaster Silicone-Strap Hybrid Smart Watch:

      I've had this watch for a couple weeks now and I love how it looks and feels. The alerts work very well and allow me to ignore my phone as needed while still being able to tell if someone important calls/texts. I wasn't looking for full smartphone functionality, and this is a very happy medium while still looking like a very nice watch.

      My only complaint would be that the built-in step tracker is not very reliable. My other apps/devices routinely log more steps with my watch registering 85-90% on dedicated walks. The % is closer to 70-75% on casual walking throughout the day. I wouldn't recommend as a dedicated step tracker, but overall I really enjoy this product.

      Good watch but....

      Comments about Fossil Q Crewmaster Silicone-Strap Hybrid Smart Watch:

      As always Fossil makes quality products. My problem with this watch is that it does not measure steps as well as the fitness trackers. I wore it along with mine, only to learn that it measured about half my steps. All the other features worked fine. If you're not that serious measuring your steps, it will be fine.

      Good Looking Watch with Minimal Smarts

      By 

      from Suches, GA, United States

      Comments about Fossil Q Crewmaster Silicone-Strap Hybrid Smart Watch:

      I have many smart watches in my collection, but sometimes desire real hands!

      The watch delivers precisely what it promises, and it looks terrific.

      EVERYDAY USE:

      Visibility is a mixed bag. Because the watch is so large, it is very easy to read the time in even very dim light. However, the markings for the functions such as 24 hour time and especially date are so tiny as to be completely useless to these ageing eyes of mine—even when wearing my glasses. I also find it a strange design decision that they use the whole 360° of the watch face for the date (the hands point to the current date on a teeny-tiny ring on the outside of the face). It would make much more sense to simply use the first thirty-one minute markers. That way, you could easily see the date without having to actually attempt to read those tiny numbers.

      Many people report that the watch hands have no illumination. Although the hands actually do glow, it is next to useless. You may be able to read the time for few minutes after entering the dark. After that, forget it. There is no way to read this watch in the dark.

      FITNESS FUNCTIONS:

      I have only had the watch a day so far, but the step counter seems to work as advertised, and the sleep hours reported this morning seem correct. The step counter ring is nice and easy to read.

      I did a two-mile walk wearing the watch last night, and it reported it as 1.8 miles. There is no way to make any adjustment, such as step length to gain more accurate distance measurement. This is something that could easily be fixed with a software update. The calorie burn estimate for that 1.8 mile walk was reported as 174.4 Calories, which I find low. Of course, without heart-rate monitoring, it can only be a very rough guess.

      NOTIFICATIONS:

      Notifications seem to work as advertised. I would prefer the vibration to be much stronger, but they are noticeable as long as you aren't doing something busy with your hands. My car is a bit of a bone-shaker, so I don't expect to be feeling any notifications while driving. Motorcycle? Forget it.

      Of course, the smart functions regarding notifications are very basic compared to other full-on smart watches, but we know this going in, so no surprises there. It does what it promises to do, and the way it points to hour markers to indicate which of your assigned contacts is calling, texting, etc. is quite cool. Also being able to assign app notifications to particular hours works well in a minimalistic way.

      COMFORT:

      Make no mistake, this is a large, heavy watch, but not awfully so. The included silicone strap is very good quality, feels good and requires no breaking in. A lot will depend on the exact size of your wrist and how it aligns with the holes in the strap. Too loose, and the weight will become very noticeable. Too tight, and it will obviously be uncomfortable. For my part, unfortunately, my ideal setting is right between two holes. I have just ordered a nato style strap which I think will complement the rugged look of the watch perfectly and hopefully allow me a perfect fit.

      CONCLUSION:

      Overall, this watch delivers exactly what is promised, and the quality seems very, very good.

      Coming from other true smart watches, there is of course very limited functionality, but that is offset by the fact that it is a beautiful piece—in my opinion. Nobody would know that you're wearing anything other than a good-looking chunky timepiece. All offerings in the nascent world of smart watches are a compromise, but if you're willing to compromise on functionality for gorgeous looks and traditional styling this could very well be the watch for you.
