Fossil gets active with Sport smartwatch

Fossil launches Fossil Sport, a Wear OS smartwatch running the Snapdragon 3100 - GSMArena.com news

Fossil has released its first Snapdragon Wear 3100-powered smartwatch.

The new chip should make a major difference in battery life, which has been one of the main issues holding smartwatches back.

Fossil also claims that the Sport's battery is rated for all-day use. The straps and bracelets are interchangeable and available in 18- and 22mm sizes. Sadly, it appears that only six colours are available for Canadians to buy. As typical, there are two sizes to choose from - 41mm and 43mm - both of which come with a nylon and aluminium case.

The Wear OS watch will include the latest update to the platform with the new UI and pre-loaded apps including the new Spotify Connect app, as well as something called "Noonlight" which they describe as a "peace of mind and safety app".

The Fossil Sport packs a heart-rate sensor, GPS, and NFC for making payments with Google Pay. The wearable is compatible with Android and iOS smartphones, specifically with Android OS 4.4 Kit Kat and above (excluding Go edition) or iOS 9.3 and above. It should last a full day in smartwatch mode, and then an additional two days in the power saving mode, which is created to only tell the time.

"Over the last three years, Fossil and Qualcomm have collaborated closely to launch a series of products and have led the Wear OS by Google smartwatch segment", Pankaj said in a statement.

With that processor, Fossil says that we can expect a 24 hour lifespan from the Sport's 350mAh battery, which is larger than some previous smartwatch models the company has offered.
