Fossil has launched its latest smartwatch called the Fossil Gen 6. It’s the first smartwatch to boast Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor. So, let’s walk through the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Fossil Gen 6 in Nepal.
Fossil Gen 6 Overview:
Design and Display
Fossil Gen 6 comes in two case options: 42 and 44mm. Still, both variants have the same 1.28-inch screen. It’s an AMOLED display with 416 x 416 resolution and 326 PPI. They are also 3 ATM water-resistant, meaning you can go light swimming with the watch on your wrist.
Fossil Gen 6 comes in a stainless-steel case with a trio of buttons on the right, including a rotating crown in the center. It also features a speaker and a microphone, allowing you to accept or make calls directly from the watch.
Snapdragon Wear 4100+
Under the hood, Fossil Gen 6 is powered by Snapdragon Wear 4100+ chipset, which was launched last year alongside the regular Wear 4100 that we recently saw in Mobvoi TicWatch E3. The only difference between the Plus and non-plus variants is the presence of a power-efficient co-processor on the former.
According to Qualcomm, the Wear 4100 series brings 85% better CPU and memory performance compared to the Snapdragon Wear 3100.
Fossil has backed the chipset with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. Moving on, the smartwatch boots on last-gen Wear OS. However, Fossil has promised Wear OS 3 update in 2022. It also comes with Google Voice Assistant support built-in.
