Fossil Launches Its First Smartwatch on the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 Platform

Fossil has debuted a sports smartwatch that is powered by a Snapdragon 3100 chip and Google's redesigned Wear OS. This watch has also the music service app Spotify and emergency services app.

The real challenge for the Fossil Sport won't be endurance, though. It sort of resembles the old LG Watch Style-a good thing since it was one of less fugly smartwatches from the past two years. Additionally, the Fossil Sport also features a new battery-saving mode; enhanced ambient mode; and integrated heart rate, NFC and Global Positioning System capabilities.

According to Fossil, the watch will come in a 41mm and 43mm size options, with six colorways and a huge collection of interchangeable straps to choose from. It's also running the revamped Wear OS that just started rolling out in September. The main difference is the Sport's design relies on a nice pop of color-sort of like the Baby-G watches of yesteryear. All this can be paired with straps in 28 different variants allowing you to customize the watch to your liking. Rapid charging allows the smartwatch to be nearly completely charged within an hour, helping power users from day to night.

With this new generation of watch, Fossil showcases a unique, colorful take on technology and redefining what it means to bring activity and balance to your lifestyle.

Fossil has managed to squeeze through one more smartwatch ahead of the all important seasonal shopping bonanza. You can, however, get two more days if you switch off all the "smart" features and use it as a dumb watch.
