Fossil India Announces Gen 6 of Qualcomm Snapdragon Wearables

Fossil India has announced the launch of the newest generation of its wearables – the Gen 6 Touchscreen Smartwatch. The Gen 6 smartwatch will be the first smartwatch powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear 4100+ Platform, providing users faster application load times, highly responsive user experiences, and more efficient power consumption. In addition, the battery charging speed is two times faster than leading smartwatches, reaching 80% charge in just over 30 minutes. Users will also benefit from continuous heart rate tracking, a new SpO2 sensor, speaker functionality to make and receive tethered calls, software updates from Wear OS by Google and Fossil Group, smart battery modes and more.

Gen 6 will also be compatible with Google’s new system update, Wear OS 3, announced earlier this year. The smartwatch will be eligible for the Wear OS 3 system update in 2022, alongside other updates that will continue to improve the overall user experience.

“Fossil Group and Qualcomm have had a long-standing partnership and have led the convergence of fashion and technology in the industry,” says Pankaj Kedia, Global Head of Wearables, Qualcomm Technologies. “We are delighted to have collaborated with Fossil Group on their latest smartwatch, the Gen 6, which is the first product to come to market based on our Snapdragon Wear 4100+ platform. This platform enables users to experience lightning-fast processing and richer, always-on, ambient modes and watch faces with ultra-low power consumption, thanks to the integration of the always-on co-processor in the platform.”

“On our journey to consistently create an ecosystem of wearables that offer a state of the art experience, the next generation of our smartwatches offers a suite of upgraded competencies. And the Gen 6 is a true testament to innovation. We are proud to introduce the new SpO2 sensor and increased battery speeds among other improved features, as we continue to raise the bar at Fossil,” says Johnson Verghese, Managing Director, Fossil India. “We are also delighted to launch Gen 6 in India simultaneously with our launch in the US and other key geographies across the world”

The new Fossil India Gen 6 smartwatch launches progressively with four colorways in a 44mm case and three colorways in a 42mm case for added size options. In addition to offering seven timeless styles and endless interchangeable strap options, users can customize dials and buttons to easily access their most-used functions. Fossil Gen 6 is upgradable to Wear OS 3, Google’s new system update announced earlier in the summer, and will benefit from continued improvements in features and user experience.

Increased Battery Charging Speed and Smart Battery Modes

Users can enjoy shorter charging time and extended battery life to maximise their day. The Gen 6’s charging speed is two times faster than the leading smartwatch, reaching 80% in only a little more than 30 minutes of charging. This, combined with the Snapdragon Wear4100+ platform, decreased power consumption and Fossil Group-developed Smart Battery Modes, puts the user in control and allows for 24+ hours of battery life (based on usage) or multiple days in Extended Battery Mode.

This improvement also impacts the customer experience in regard to sleep tracking. The device reaches 80% charge in about 30 minutes, enabling a full charge in the morning after tracking your sleep.

Upgraded Health & Wellness Sensors

In addition to wellness updates from Fossil India released in 2020, Gen 6 boasts an upgraded heart rate sensor to allow continuous tracking and improved signal accuracy. Users will also benefit from the new SpO2 sensor, which tracks an estimate of the wearer’s blood oxygen measurements to see how well your body is circulating oxygen over time.

Swim Proof Speaker and Microphone

Android and iOS smartphone users can enjoy the ability to make and receive calls from their Gen 6 smartwatch. Hear responses and get answers from Google Assistant — when you ask a question or tell it to perform an action, you can hear Google speak back to you.
