Fossil's latest Wear OS smartwatch adds longer battery life for $255

Fossil on Thursday announced the Sport Smartwatch, the company's first model featuring a Snapdragon 3100 chip and Google's Wear OS.

This is a Wear OS watch described as "the lightest smartwatch to date ".

Like the sound of Fossil's new smartwatch? While the exact details are not revealed, one can expect an OLED panel on the latest Fossil Sport. When the device is running out of juice, it'll automatically switch into a low power mode; you'll lose some functionality, but in return you'll get up to two days of additional battery life. Typically, smartwatches only come in two or three options, but the Fossil sport will come in silver, gold, dark grey, red, blue, and pink. That's a big deal because Wear OS as a platform has always been held back by relying on the already two-year-old Snapdragon 2100. The Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform enhances the ambient mode allowing for an improved user experience-select dials will leverage the new platform to showcase color and a sweeping second hand for more dynamic style. Well, the watch comes with interchangeable straps and bracelets in 18mm and 22mm sizes and is compatible with iOS and Android and can be connected via Bluetooth technology. One that's meant to make smartwatches more useful and support longer battery life. Wear OS watches aren't exactly known for being super accurate with tracking, and they're way better for monitoring your general activity than being a hardcore fitness companion.
