When Google launched the Pixel watch, they must have thought they would take all the hype for the next few weeks at least, but to their surprise, Fossil announced its first-ever Wear OS 3 watch – Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition. The upcoming Fossil watch is powered by the Snapdragon 4100+ with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage.
The Gen 6 Wellness Edition smartwatch will debut with a new Wellness mobile app and support apps like YouTube Music and Spotify. The watch doesn’t support Google Assistant, but it has Alexa to savour your day. The new wellness app will bring features such as blood oxygen level measurement, heart rate zones, automatic workout detection, and cardio fitness estimations using VO2 Max.
The upcoming smartwatch looks like your typical Fossil device, thanks to the fashion aesthetic. The smartwatch will arrive in a 44mm case with a 1.28-inch always-on OLED display and will be available in three colour options: black, silver, and rose gold. The company has made a number of Wear OS watches in recent years, which means they’ll surely come up with more watches with Wear OS 3 in the near future.
As the name suggests. the upcoming Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition watch is just a revamped version of the last year’s Gen 6 watch, indicating we will have to wait a bit longer to see the Gen7 Fossil watch. The Gen 6 Wellness Edition will get multiple strap colour options, and the watch will be available starting October 17 in Fossil’s stores and on the official website.
