The new Hybrid HR brings an always-on display, heart rate tracking in a wearable rated to last for two weeks. The best part of Hybrid HR is that it does so without giving up on conventional watch design. While it is not a full-fledged smartwatch, it does offer some of the features found on such wearables.

With Hybrid HR, Fossil is taking a different approach to hybrid smartwatches. It has a traditional watch design, meaning you get the hour and seconds hands. There is also a second layer of display that displays notifications. The approach was taken by LG before but Fossil is going with a e-paper display. The Hybrid HR comes with a 42mm watch case and the display covers 27mm of the casing. This display is aided by four side lights which illuminate to show context in dark environment.

The Hybrid HR tries to hit the middle ground between smartwatch and a traditional watch. The pricing does seem to make it an attractive option among hybrid smartwatches.
