Gen 6 boasts increased speed and performance, updated wellness sensors, and compatibility with Wear OS 3
It is with great excitement that Fossil has just announced the newest generation to our wearables portfolio: the Gen 6 Touchscreen Smartwatch.
The Gen 6 smartwatch will be the first smartwatch powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™4100+ Platform, providing users faster application load times, highly responsive user experiences, and more efficient power consumption.
In addition, the battery charging speed is two times faster than leading smartwatches, reaching 80% charge in just over 30 minutes. Users will also benefit from continuous heart rate tracking, a new SpO2 sensor, speaker functionality to make and receive tethered calls, software updates from Wear OS by Google™and Fossil Group, smart battery modes and more. The Fossil brand Gen 6 smartwatch will be first to market, launching for pre-order for Android™and iOS phone users alike from 20 September (from 30 August in America).
Gen 6 will also be compatible with Google’s new system update, Wear OS 3, announced earlier this year. The smartwatch will be eligible for the Wear OS 3 system update in 2022, alongside other updates that will continue to improve the overall user experience.
The new Fossil brand Gen 6 smartwatch launches with four colourways in a 44 mm case and three colourways in a 42 mm case for added size options. In addition to offering seven timeless styles and endless interchangeable strap options, users can customise dials and buttons to easily access their most-used functions. Fossil Gen 6 is upgradable to Wear OS 3, Google’s new system update announced earlier in the summer, and will benefit from continued improvements in features and user experience.
