Fossil Sport Smartwatch debuts as second Snapdragon Wear 3100 watch

09 November 2018

Fossil is one of those manufacturers, today announcing a new smartwatch simply called Fossil Sport. Now the Fossil Sport Smartwatch is the second wearable featuring Qualcomm's Wear 3100 platform, running Google's redesigned Wear OS. The battery-saving mode also adds an additional two extra days of limited usage. The straps and bracelets are interchangeable and available in 18- and 22mm sizes.

It's November, and new Wear OS-compatible smartwatches keep dribbling out as we approach the holidays.

The watch, which passed through the FCC in September will be available in two sizes: 41mm or 43mm, with a body made from nylon topped with silver, rose gold, gold, blue or red coloured aluminium.

And, naturally, the whole show will continue to run on Google's Wear OS platform, which was recently given a makeover in order to improve day-to-day usability.

Sitting alongside the bigger battery is the same crop of features and sensors we've seen flood the fourth generation of Fossil Group devices - a heart rate monitor sits on the underside, while NFC for contactless Google Pay payments and built-in Global Positioning System are also on board.

Fossil has just announced a new range of sporty smartwatches packed with features created to help you achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

The watch will be priced at $255 (or around $351.79 AUD) or £249 in the United Kingdom and is available to pre-order in the United Kingdom and USA with shipping set to begin on November 12th.
