Last year the Fossil Gen 6 was officially announced. Now the watch brand is introducing its newest version called Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition. There are several improvements offered, one of which is the Wear OS 3 operating system.
Features of Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition
Just like its predecessor, the Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition still carries the Snapdragon 4100+ chipset. The use of Wear OS 3 itself makes it the first Fossil smartwatch to adopt the latest smartwatch OS from Google.
That means, Wellness Edition already supports various interesting applications such as YouTube Music, Spotify, and Facer. Unfortunately there is no Google Assistant, but users are presented with Alexa as a virtual assistant.
Another feature that is also available in this new series is the Wellness application. Users can access various health and fitness features, such as measuring blood oxygen levels, heart rate, automatic exercise detection, and VO2 Max. Fossil also provides an upgrade to the ability to monitor sleep quality.
In terms of specifications, the Wellness Edition is equipped with an always-on OLED screen measuring 1.28 inches. The embedded RAM is 1 GB while the internal storage is 8 GB. This watch comes with a 44mm casing.
Price and availability
The Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition retails for US$299. Consumers can choose three color options, including Black, Silver, and Rose Gold, as well as a variety of straps with a choice of attractive colors.
