Best Hybrid Smartwatch

Best Hybrid Smartwatch

Hybrid smartwatches are a combination of traditional watch and modern smartwatch. They’re not as fully featured as a smartwatch, but they look more like a proper watch.




And the Winner Is...

Fossil Q Nate

The Fossil Q Nate is handsomely designed and provides notifications very well. You can only get notifications from up to six apps, but the Fossil Q Nate supports the largest number of apps among our nominees. It’s a basic activity tracker, and its large size may not be for everyone. But it’ll make sure you won’t miss a ping from your smartphone.
