Fossil Sport watch announced with Wear 3100 and ultra lightweight body

With Wear OS receiving a redesign back in September, a few manufacturers have been looking to leverage the OS in new devices.

With that processor, Fossil says that we can expect a 24 hour lifespan from the Sport's 350mAh battery, which is larger than some previous smartwatch models the company has offered.

He says people have contacted him to express their support and to say they have been discriminated against because of their age. Ratelband is a pensioner and has said that if he does get to legally change his age, he will stop claiming the pension.

Compared to nearly all of Fossil's previous Wear OS efforts, the aptly named Sport is focused less on traditional style and more on modern functionality. But the Sport runs on the new 3100 SoC, which should provide noticeable improvements in battery life and performance.

Fossil's watches are typically designed with fashion in mind, but the Sport is all about being as functional as can be. "The Fossil Sport smartwatch represents our best efforts yet, made possible through the combination of Qualcomm's world class Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform and Fossil's ingenious pulse of the evolving consumer needs". Additionally, there's a heart rate sensor, NFC, GPS, altimeter, accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, and a microphone present on the watch. It comes with standard 18mm or 22mm watch straps and the watch itself comes in 41mm and 43mm sizes.

The Fossil Sport will come priced at $255 and is available to buy now on Fossil's website, rolling out to Fossil retail stores on 12 November.

I think Fossil is offering a pretty compelling package at this price point, especially considering the hardware and newer chipset.
