The Fossil Collider Hybrid HR first saw the light of day at the end of August 2019. After some delays, we now have three models in our range. Read on to find out whether this clever hybrid smartwatch with E-Ink display technology and 2+ weeks of battery life is your cup of tea.

The Fossil Collider Hybrid HR

Hybrid smartwatches combine the stylish appearance and analogue dial of classic watches with the many advanced features of a smartwatch. The best of both worlds colliding – that’s exactly where the «Collider» gets its name from. The result: you give your wrist a high-tech upgrade hidden behind a smart-looking smartwatch.

The Collider is available in three versions: as a silicone sports watch, with a leather strap or with stainless steel links. Unfortunately, we’re running out of the black models and hope to receive fresh batches at the end of June.

The Collider offers standard users around two weeks of battery life. Heavy users, on the other hand, will have to rejuice after about ten days, and occasional users will only need to charge after up to three weeks. In addition to its innovative design with mechanical watch hands and E-Ink display technology, the Collider Smart boasts notifications, a heart-rate monitor, sleep recording and much more.

A day without doing sports and enjoying music is a wasted day. I'm a passionate triathlete who never leaves the house without headphones and smartwatch. To me, keeping up with the digitalisation of everyday life means constantly trying out new devices and always being curious.
