The Fossil smartwatch Black Friday deals we expect
Since last Black Friday Fossil has dropped a whole new fifth generation of smartwatches, so there are some new devices on the market which could see deals.
We’re hopeful that the event could bring some of the first big discounts on these new models, including the Carlyle HR and Julianna HR, freshly launched though they are.

Still, though, looking back at its Gen 4 watches, we can get a sense for the benchmark from last year’s best deals. Fossil’s Q Venture HR and Q Explorist HR were heavily discounted last year, to around the $175 mark, which makes that the mark to aspire to. That meant saving of around $75 to $80 apiece.
Its Gen 3 watches, meanwhile, were available for seriously low prices during last year’s event. The Explorist 3rd Gen hit a low of $133, a pretty great price for a solid watch.
Now, these aren’t watches that can match the fourth and fifth generation’s specs, but they are still stylish smartwatches at cut-price rates. Expect to see similar discounts this year, if you’re looking our for a budget option.
Meanwhile, Fossil’s cheapest ranges of hybrid smartwatches can often be picked up for small change during big events like Black Friday. Last year the Fossil Q Annette was available for just $55, by way of example.
Others, like the Q Grant and Q Machine were also heavily discounted. While these don’t give a full touchscreen display or Google’s Wear OS, you do get a watch that looks like a traditional Fossil watch. Connected features are added discreetly like buzzing your wrist when you get a phone notification and basic activity tracking.
Where will you find Fossil smartwatch deals?
There are sure to be a host of discounts on Fossil’s watches as Black Friday kicks into gear. Its devices are sold by major retailers on both sides of the Atlantic.
In America you’ll likely see great deals from Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and Target. In the UK, meanwhile, Amazon will be a major player, along with Argos, John Lewis and Currys PC World.
Black Friday at the Fossil official store will also have plenty of discounts both sides of the pond, too.
Needless to say, there isn’t going to be any shortage of Black Friday Fossil smartwatch deals this year, so all that needs to be done is check back right here once the sale kicks off.
