Fossil revealed a handful of new wearables back in March and a pair of those gadgets are arriving this month. The company announced today that its Q Wander and Q Marshal smartwatches would be available for pre-order August 12th and are due to hit Fossil stores (both retail and online) August 29th. Both models run Android Wear, so they’re compatible with both Android and iOS devices. The 45mm timepieces pack touchscreen displays, steel cases, interchangeable bands and magnetic charging. To complete the look you’re after, Fossil offers a range of bands that include leather, silicon and stainless steel options.

Thanks to Android Wear, you can expect notifications, custom watch faces and activity tracking with the likes of Google Fit, Under Armour’s UA Record, Jawbone UP and MyFitness Pal. While the Q smartwatches will work with an iPhone, the Android faithful will be able to respond to text messages on-screen or using voice commands with the smartwatches. The Q Wander and Q Marshal will set you back $295 if you’re will to take the leap. These two models join Fossil’s other Q wearables that include smartwatches with both digital and analog displays in addition to dedicated activity trackers.
