Fossil has launched its new Gen 6 smartwatch in India. The fashion watch and accessories company says there is a price segment that is driven by “fashion watches” and that is where Gen 6 smartwatch fits in. The Gen 6 smartwatch is priced between Rs 23,995 and Rs 24,995.
The Gen 6 comes in different styles for both men and women, covering both formal and casual looks. The watch has a 1.28-inch, AMOLED touchscreen display, a rotating crown and two programmable pusher buttons. You will get the option of 44mm and 42mm case sizes, plus there’s interchangeable bands with the larger Gen 6 watch using a 22mm band, and the 42mm version coming with a smaller 18mm strap.
The latest watch is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100+ platform with 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM, which enables faster performance. Other features include a SpO2 sensor, a speaker for taking calls, an always-on display, faster charging, and automatic syncing. Fossil claims the battery on its new smartwatch will last a day’s use. The watch also carries 3ATM water-resistant rating making it fit for swimming too.
However, the Gen 6 smartwatch is still powered by the old version of WearOS and not the new Wear OS 3 that runs on the latest Samsung Galaxy Watches. Fossil says the new WearOS 3 will come to the Gen 6 smartwatch in 2022, though the exact release date hasn’t been revealed.
