Fossil Q Explorist with Android Wear 2.0

The Q Explorist comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 512 processor Megabytes of memory. The operating system is the already known Android Wear 2.0. That's why the app store can be found directly on the clock and Google's own voice assistant is on board.
