Fossil’s first Wear OS 3 watch is a wellness-focused Gen 6 edition

Fossil has announced its launching its first-ever Wear OS 3 watch, the Gen 6 Wellness Edition. It’ll also introduce a new Wellness mobile app for health and fitness tracking, but unfortunately, this watch doesn’t feature Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon W5 Plus platform. The Gen 6 Wellness Edition will retail for $299. The Gen 6 Wellness Edition looks like your typical Fossil device with its fashion smartwatch aesthetic. It’ll come in a 44mm case with a 1.28-inch always-on OLED display, as well as three colour options: black, silver, or rose gold. It’ll be powered by the last-gen Snapdragon Wear 4100 Plus chip with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. The watch will also link up with the redesigned Fossil Smartwatches app that launched with the Gen 6 Hybrid earlier this summer. As far as smart features go, Wear OS 3 offers a better selection of optimised third-party apps in the Play Store. Fossil emphasised apps like YouTube Music, Spotify, Facer, and Amazon Alexa. The company also isn’t sure when Assistant will be available for its Wear OS 3 watches.
