Fossil Hybrid HR Review: The Undercover Smartwatch


Somewhere between a traditional timepiece and a smartwatch lies a peculiar product called a “hybrid” watch … and it’s a category that, frankly, I’ve usually ignored. But in my new neighborhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn – where a flashy $400 Apple Watch still seems a little too “Williamsburg-y” – hybrids strike a better balance for some … and the new Fossil Hybrid HR is the smartest I’ve seen yet. Are a promised two-week battery life and always-on display enough to justify the Fossil Hybrid HR’s $195 starting price? Join me for a closer look at this e-ink/analog wearable, in MrMobile’s Fossil Hybrid HR Review!
