fossil q founder uses intel.
fossil q marshall and wander use qualcomm
its really funny that gsmarena knows everything only about Samsung and apple...hehehah
q founder is on sale since last year, it has intel 1 ghz processor and 4 gb of rom and 1 gm of ram. its the thickest of the bunch and has 400mah of battery. it doesn't support wifi.
q marshal and wander are just announced this year in april 2016 and went on sale on 29 august. they both run on QUALCOMM 2100 processor with same 4 gb rom but only 512 mb ram (that's half the size of original q founder), also the battery is reduced to 360mah and the reason they gave was they reduced the thickness. new models supports wifi.
I was shocked to learn that fossil has reduced both the battery and ram, I think the reason is now they are using QUALCOMM processor which is not as power hungry as intel hence they don't need 1gb of ram and can still perform as fast as the q founder. the battery is also reduced due to processor change and can still give 1 day of usage.
I have personally checked all the watches and the newer 2 are not that much thin than the q founder that they reduced the battery. its only just to save the cost. interesting thing is all are selling for same price here in Canada.
q founder chain, q marshal chain, q wander chain = C$390
q founder leather, q marshal leather, q wander leather = C$360.
Saw one yesterday at fossil, really nice how it's compatible with both Android and iOS. Deal killer was the screen seems to be washed out at all screen brightness setting. And what's up with the fake turn crown.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2016What's the battery life?About all day.
I have the Q Founder. With a fair amount of usage, I get like 12hours. With not so much, I get about 20hours. Both always connected and always providing notifications and screen always on. One of best watches for battery life!
Are you sure they use Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100? I thought they used Intel?
