Mandy Moore has a lot going on right now. Fresh from a top-to-bottom home makeover, she married the man of her dreams – Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith – and the star of Emmy-award winning TV drama This Is Us. It’s incredible to think that the 34-year-old has time for another project, and yet she was recently announced as the new ambassador for heritage brand, Fossil. Of course, as the face of their Gen 4 Smartwatch collection, they’re probably the reason she has time for all these things at all.

“These days my schedule is so hectic with filming, so it helps to have a cute accessory that also keeps me on time and connected to the things, and people, I actually care about,” she says. Blending fashion and function, the new generation of Fossil smart watches have all the features you’ve come to know and love including Bluetooth connectivity, phone push notifications and a customisable touchscreen. But with new technology too: Heart-Rate Tracking, NFC (for contactless Google Pay on the go), Untethered GPS – which means your watch can track your movements even when you’ve left your phone at home – and Swimproof Functionality.

Smart updates like these mean you don’t need to switch to a fitness tracker to monitor workouts – whether you’re hiking in the great outdoors, breaking a sweat in the gym or swimming laps. Watch dials are even equipped with heart-rate tracking, so users can check their beats-per-minute at a quick glance. Bonus: charging the device only takes an hour, but lasts all day. Aesthetically, each watch is completely customisable – a quality Fossil has worked hard to ensure, in line with their new season message of celebrating and embracing your truest self.

Fossil is such an iconic brand and I really love their message celebrating creativity, authenticity and, most importantly, optimism.

There are more than 36 exclusive dials in a range of styles, three of which Moore designed herself, with a selection of bands and bracelets in the collection too. Where did she get the inspiration for her designs? “I'm constantly inspired by modern vintage finds,” says Moore. “I mean look at my house! I definitely have a thing for mixing the best of mid-century modern with really cool and functional contemporary pieces. Fossil embodies that modern vintage feeling, [taking] the best of something vintage and makes it new and relevant for today.”

We’ll have what she’s having.
