Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatch Released with Wear OS 3

Fossil has just released their new watch, named the Fossil Gen 6, sporting Wear OS 3 and new sensors.

It’s Interesting to see that Wear OS 3 won’t be installed when you take it out of the box. It will be available via an update that is said to come out sometime in 2022. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 that will be sporting it out of the box.

Disregarding that, the watch will come out with a SpO2 sensor that will let the smartwatch take blood oxygen measurements. A major feature that Fossil claims is that the watch will be able to reach 80% charging capacity in at least 30 minutes.

As for the hardware though, the watch has a Snapdragon 4100 Plus chipset, which can provide a battery boost and lower battery consumption. The watch also should be able to survive for over a full day when charged to 100%.

The watch has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. The Fossil Gen 6 is water-resistant to 3ATM. It also has a heart rate sensor too to measure your hearts bpm. The Fossil Gen 6 has 2 case sizes. One is 42mm and the other is 44mm. Note: They’re both made out of stainless steel. It has 7 styles. 4 for the 44mm size and 3 for the 42mm.

It has a 1.23-inch AMOLED display with a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch. It has a speaker, there’s a rotating home button to navigate the interface.

The price is between $299 and $319, or £220 and £230. We do expect the Fossil Gen 6 to be available worldwide. (You can only preorder the Fossil Gen 6 shortly).
