It’s definitely hard to explain why a number of all-new Wear OS smartwatches have been released running an old version of Google’s software platform over the last few months while others were powered by the latest OS build right out the box.
For what it’s worth, the Fossil Gen 6 lineup for one does pack a new Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor while naturally being set to receive an official Wear OS 3 update… at some point next year.
That probably doesn’t make this stylish collection of Android and iOS-compatible intelligent timepieces feel very compelling at a regular price of $299 and up, but if you hurry, you can save no less than 30 percent on your choice of seven different models.
However you may choose to call it, the killer new deal is completely unprecedented and most likely unbeatable, discounting for the very first time a family of incredibly good-looking and reasonably feature-packed wearable devices unveiled less than three months ago.
At the time of this writing, you can opt for one of four Fossil Gen 6 variants marked down from a $299 MSRP or one of three reduced by 30 percent from a slightly higher $319 list price. Four of those units are specifically designed for men, with a large 44mm case paired with various “masculine” bands, while three come in women-friendly styles, sporting smaller 42mm cases decorated with little crystals all around and more eye-catching straps and bracelets.
That’s because, in addition to the aforementioned Qualcomm chipset, which brings 30 percent more power to the table compared to its predecessor, the Fossil Gen 6 also has heart rate, blood oxygen, and in-depth sleep tracking going for it, as well as a beautiful AMOLED display, top-notch water resistance, more than 24 hours of battery life, blazing fast charging capabilities, and a built-in speaker and microphone. Not bad for a little over two Benjamins, eh?
