Fossil Launches A New Sports Edition Smartwatch

Fossil has managed to squeeze through one more smartwatch ahead of the all important seasonal shopping bonanza. Users also get the benefit of proactive help from the Google Assistant as well as health coaching tips via Google Fit, and Fossil has also created three watch faces that integrate Google Fit to show progress towards two new activity goals we've reported on previously. The timepiece also brings all the goodies that come with the company's fourth generation wearable tech.

While there's still a noticeable lack of smartphone manufacturers working with Wear OS, Fossil is still churning out Wear OS watches left and right. Not just that, it comes with a heart rate sensor, optimized connectivity, GPS, and NFC capabilities on the platform. Moreover, the watch also has a wide range of straps.

In addition to standard smartwatch features like connecting with your smartphone and storing music, the Sport Smartwatch was designed with exercise in mind. One measures 41mm in diameter, the other 43mm.

The big question is whether the Sport's new processor can handle the wearOS redesign Google rolled out a few weeks ago.

The watch includes a heart-rate sensor and Global Positioning System tracker, along with a built-in microphone for voice commands. Thanks to the built-in Global Positioning System tracker, there is no need of carrying your phone while exercising. The watch comes pre-installed with Spotify and an emergency services app.
