The Best Decision Of My Life And My Fossil Smart Watch

You know those moments that seem small at the time, but they lead to something so, so significant and then later you can’t imagine what would have happened if you made a different decision? That is exactly how I feel about moving to LA. I moved here when I was 22, and at the time it just seemed like a fun thing to do for one stage of life. Looking back, it was the best decision of my life.

Moving to LA is what ended up inspiring me to start blogging, to have the courage to jump into full time, and to have all of the resources and community I needed all around me. Take Aim is literally my life now, and I cannot imagine how different my life would be if I had never moved here! Who knows what other adventure I would be having, but I’m so thankful for the one I’m having now.

Blogging full time has also meant that I spend so much of my time on my phone — posting, emailing, editing photos, planning — which is why I was really excited when I heard about the Fossil Q Smartwatch. I’ve seen smartwatches before and thought they could be helpful, but this is the first one I’ve seen that still has a sleek, traditional look. I was so surprised it was also a smart watch because you could never tell just by looking.

The Fossil Q Smartwatch allows you to track your activity, get alerted when you have notifications, sync with wireless and bluetooth, and you can even set custom goals using the Fossil Q App. Plus — the most convenient feature — it charges wirelessly! I’m so impressed with this watch, and genuinely have found it to be so helpful and very cute at the same time. I love being able to track my steps and sleep hours without even thinking about it. You can select from several different colors for straps too.

These photos are from earlier this week — I started the day off on my balcony for some coffee, and was able to head to the Ace Hotel for some lunch and a pretty rooftop view. I love that my watch allows me to be off my phone and computer a little more so that I can enjoy more moments throughout the day. If you’re looking for a great way to use smart technology in a cuter way, definitely check these new smartwatches out. Love!
