  • Fossil launches Fossil Sport, a Wear OS smartwatch running the Snapdragon 3100 - GSMArena.com news

We've seen too many smartwatches come to market recently with Qualcomm's two-year-old Snapdragon Wear 2100.

This is a Wear OS watch described as "the lightest smartwatch to date ".

Fossil's watches are typically designed with fashion in mind, but the Sport is all about being as functional as can be.


The company says the 350 mAh unit, with the help of Wear 3100, will be able to eke out a day of life based on the "full smartwatch experience", which we assume includes some HR tracking and Global Positioning System. Beyond color choices, the Fossil Sport seems to offer a good amount of functionality, thanks at least in part to the Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform at the heart of the device. But the Sport runs on the new 3100 SoC, which should provide noticeable improvements in battery life and performance.

The video below, showing the Fossil Sport in action on people's wrists, doesn't show off anything surprising. It's also running the revamped Wear OS that just started rolling out in September.

The Fossil Sport is available for purchase today with a starting price of $255 at Fossil's website and will be available in retail stores globally beginning November 12. Meanwhile, the Fossil Sport launches with six colorways, two case sizes (41 and 43 mm), plus a variety of strap options.
