Product information
Top features:

- Smartphone connection expands what the watch can do 

- Fitness tracking helps you stay motivated for workouts

Impressive design

The whole face of the Fossil Explorist FTW4018 Smartwatch is a touchscreen display, so you can customize the dials and reach your most used features with a single tap. The strap and watch face are interchangeable too, so you can mix it up to match your style.

Smartphone connection

Sync the Fossil Explorist HR to your smartphone with Bluetooth to receive notifications for texts, calls, emails, and apps straight to your wrist. With a simple “OK Google”, you can ask about the weather, set a reminder, get directions, and much more. While travelling, it'll automatically update to match whatever time zone you find yourself in, so you're always on time.

Fitness tracking

Get the most out of your workouts. Using GPS you can track your speed and distance, and your heart rate will also show on the screen for extra motivation. The Explorist is also swim-proof, so every workout is recorded accurately whether you're in the gym or the pool.

Downloadable apps

You can download apps directly onto the Fossil FTW4018. This really opens up what the Explorist can do - control your music, find somewhere to eat, or just play a game.

Don't reach for your wallet when you need to make a payment. Just wave your smart watch over the card machine, and the Fossil will make the payment just like a contactless card.

Lincoln GB Parent
Easy to use, connects to your phone straight away charging dock is good and the face change feature is good if you like different faces
The only thing is that when I tap the screen the dial use to light up now I try and tap the screen and it does do it I'm not sure if it's a fault or if it's in the settings not really had much time to look so we will see if its faulty or not

Delivering your online order

Get this delivered when it suits you

We’ll show you your current delivery options for this item in checkout. Subject to the time you order, and where you want delivery, these options will include:

  • FREE standard delivery in 5-10 working days
  • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£5.00)
  • Delivery in a timeslot of your choice next day or any following day (£10.00)
Please note: if we’re out of stock of an item but getting more in, we indicate – on listings pages and the product page – how soon we can dispatch for delivery to you. In this case, please go ahead and order, and we’ll contact you later to confirm an exact delivery date.

Important update on our delivery service for small items

Our courier partners (DPD, Royal Mail and On the Dot) have all updated their delivery processes to take extra precautions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please follow the below advice:

1. Customers can use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for their delivery to be left if they do not want close contact.

For customers unable to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery, and will take a picture of the property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing a customer signature.

2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service . Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at the customer’s door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for collection by the customer.  The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.

3. For On the Dot, where a standard signature delivery is not possible, On the Dot will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place and inform the customer of where the parcel has been placed.

To see the courier partner for your delivery, please check your dispatch confirmation email (which will also include your tracking reference).
