The Fossil Q Marshal and Q Wander, which were originally unveiled earlier this year, now have a pre-order date. The company announced today that the two Android Wear-powered smartwatches will be available for pre-order this Friday, August 12th. The devices will be available in stores on August 29th.

Fossil says that the two watches offer the “perfect balance of function and fashion.” Unlike almost every other smartwatch, both the Q Marshal and Q Wander feature always-on displays. Though, because the watches are circular, they have the same “flat tire” display that we’ve seen in the past.

The Q Wander is described as the more fashionable offering of the two, with Fossil describing it as having “a beautiful soft curving, multi-finish case with artfully sculpted wire lugs.” On the other hand, the Q Marshal has a “striking rugged case.” Like most watches, there are a variety of customization options, including various other straps in leather, silicone, and stainless steel. Additionally, there are “thousands of customizable options per dial choice.”

The Q Wander and Q Wander also carry activity integration with Google Fit, UA Record by Under Armour, Jawbone UP, and MyFitness Pal. The full feature list can be seen below:

  • Touchscreen, always-on display
  • 45 mm case size
  • Notifications with vibration
  • Compatible with Android™ and iOS
  • Refined steel and classic leather accents
  • Microphone & Speaker
  • Activity tracking & Step Goal Setting
  • Customizable watch face design
  • Interchangeable straps
  • Automatic Time Zone
  • Magnetic Charger
  • Partner Activity Integration including Google Fit™, UA Record™ by Under Armour, UP by Jawbone® and MyFitness Pal™

In terms of pricing, the Q Marshal and Q Wander will start at $295. Once again, pre-orders begin this Friday, August 12th, while the device will officially hit the mart on August 29th.
