Fossil has launched its 4th generation of smartwatches built with a list of new features that prove you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for function. The new smartwatches are powered by Google’s Wear OS and the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 platform. New features include Heart-Rate Tracking, NFC payments and Untethered GPS. True, most smartwatches have had these features for a while now, although hardly any of them retain that classic wristwatch design.
The watches are also swimproof and are equipped with an improved battery that optimises charge time, giving you a full day of use on less than an hour’s charge.
Called Fossil Q Venture HR and Fossil Q Explorist HR, There are 36+ exclusive dials and multiple strap styles to choose from. Users can integrate most third-party apps and set social media photos as watch face backgrounds.
“We know a lot of watch wearers have both a traditional watch and some kind of an activity tracker,” says Steve Evans, EVP, Fossil. “By adding significant features in terms of technology, without compromising our design standards, this new generation of smartwatch will provide consumers with one device that fits all of their needs.”
Fossil’s 4th generation smartwatches are available now with prices ranging between AUD $429-$469. In other watch news, Manchester United scores its own special Edition Tag Heuers. Also, we complied the 12 best field watches for men.
