Fossil, one of the very few brands that continue to launch smartwatches with Google’s Wear OS, has just made another product in its growing wearable catalog. This is the (fifth generation) Gen 5 of the Fossil Touchscreen Smartwatch that, despite its boring name, brings interesting specs for fans of this product category.
The 44 mm model features a 1.3-inch AMOLED panel and includes features such as a heart rate sensor, water protection, GPS and NFC to compatible with mobile payments (Google Pay). Processing is handled by the Snapdragon 3100 chipset (same platform featured at last year’s launch of the brand).
Other features include speakers, which are rare to see on devices without 4G LTE connectivity. You can also accept phone calls right from your watch, interact with Google Assistant, play music, get notification alerts, and more.
The manufacturer promises longer battery life with more than 24 hours away from power outlets and offers users an economical mode called “Extended Battery Mode” that guarantees multiple days of use on a single charge.
The new Gen 5 Fossil smartwatch is available for purchase on the Fossil official website for $ 295.
