Fossil gets active with Sport smartwatch

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

This new chip promises better battery life and performance over the previous-generation one.

It's hard to take Google's Wear OS software platform seriously in the Apple-dominated smartwatch market when so many recent releases have come powered by an nearly three year-old processor. Fossil says you'll be able to get the watch, buy some straps, and maybe even win some prizes.

No details on the specs have been announced beyond that it will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC, and will come with a battery capable of full days use with a battery saver mode that can extend to two days. A range of over 28 different coloured (18mm/22mm) straps to complement the coloured aluminium will be available. Each Fossil Sport also has Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi.

It's November, and new Wear OS-compatible smartwatches keep dribbling out as we approach the holidays. The fitness-oriented Wear OS device will run the latest version of Wear OS with a revamped fitness and navigation UI. Meanwhile, the Fossil Sport launches with six colorways, two case sizes (41 and 43 mm), plus a variety of strap options.

The Fossil Sport packs a heart-rate sensor, GPS, and NFC for making payments with Google Pay. Overall, it's a more preppy style than the just-reviewed Fossil Q Explorist HR and Fossil Q Venture HR. The Fossil Sport Smartwatch is already available online and at partnered retail stores in the US.
