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

Fossil has unveiled its new Fossil Sport smartwatch, becoming the second company to feature Qualcomm's battery-extending Snapdragon Wear 3100 technology.

Fossil has a new smartwatch powered by Wear OS, Fossil Sport, available this week starting at $255. But the Sport runs on the new 3100 SoC, which should provide noticeable improvements in battery life and performance. The battery-saving mode also adds an additional two extra days of limited usage.

In terms of design, the Sport will come in six different colors (silver, blue, red, gold, rose gold and grey) over two case sizes of 41mm and 43mm. The new guy has built-in Global Positioning System functionality in addition to heart rate tracking and NFC support for wrist payments, with the latter two features present on the Versa as well. It has a nylon and aluminium casing and silicon bands in 18mm and 22mm - there's 28 band and bracelet styles available for customisation too. But the Fossil Sport at least sounds like it's not outrageously priced. It's also running the revamped Wear OS that just started rolling out in September.

Then, several employees can be seen each taking a cup of yellow liquid and drinking it front of a Power Point presentation screen. A video went viral on Chinese social media site Weibo in which a male employee was being beaten with a belt.

While there's still a noticeable lack of smartphone manufacturers working with Wear OS, Fossil is still churning out Wear OS watches left and right.

Online sales are underway today, followed by physical inventory headed to "select" Fossil retail stores around the world on November 12. One that's meant to make smartwatches more useful and support longer battery life.
