Advantages: Looks great, comfort, a few little extras
What first comes to mind when you think about Fossil? For me, it's casual watches.
I have a 'formal' watch which is great for work or any important event, but you often need a watch which isn't very 'bling', looks cool, functions great, and feels comfortable. Fossil deliver these requirements.
I went into a Fossil shop not too long ago, browsed their range for a while and decided on this one. The leather strap is wide and makes your wrists look slightly bugger, it has a rather large face, big buttons and a pretty neat display.
I'm not really a 'digital watch' person, I tend to go for the analogue, but this one really did give a cool image, felt right, looked good and catered my needs.
The dial is made from brushed stainless with the contrasting black digital dial. It's built with Quartz movement so you know it's going to be accurate, contains a few features such as a digital chronograph, Timer, Alarm, timekeeping, Electro-luminescent backlight, Stainless steel bezel, selector buttons and most of all, it's 50 meters/165 feet water resistant.
I wear this one to the beach, the leather strap can be easily replaced if worn, the watch is water resistant and the face is pretty solid. A great watch for it's looks, reliability and comfort.
NOTE: If you're after a different strap, in Fossil stores they now allow you to chose your strap!
Summary: A great watch for anyone who used the beach or wants a casual watch.
