Fossil has announced two new smartwatches today – the Razer X Fossil Gen 6 and the Skagen Falster Gen 6. Both run on the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ platform and are compatible with Wear OS 3 (which will arrive later via firmware update).
The special-edition Razer X Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch is done in collaboration with the gaming brand and is a custom variant of the Fossil Gen 6, which has been around since August.
It comes with two custom-designed 22mm silicone bands – one in black and one in Razer’s recognizable green. The watch comes equipped with three Razer-themed faces and elements of Razer throughout the interface. The Razer Chroma face has different lighting effects and is customizable.
The Razer X Fossil Gen 6 has a 44mm stainless steel black case, a 1.28-inch display, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC SE. The sensors onboard the Razer X Fossil Gen 6 include a compass, altimeter, PPG heart rate sensor, and a blood oxygen sensor.
There are 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM, paired to the Wear 4100+ chip.
The Razer X Fossil Gen 6 can go for two days on a charge but charges very fast. It can achieve 80% in just 30 minutes.
The Razer X Fossil Gen 6 is coming later this month for $329 in very exclusive 1,337 units – a number paying homage to Leet.
The Skagen Falster Gen 6 has a 42mm case size and up to six different styles – silver, rose-gold, charcoal, and black. There are three band styles to choose from – Skagen’s popular stainless steel mesh, silicone, and leather – all in different colors.
The Skagen Falster Gen 6 has a 1.28-inch display and customizable dials and buttons. It matches the Razer watch for built-in sensors and uses the same Wear 4100+ platform with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.
You can also rely on the same impressive charging speed – 80% in just 30 minutes.
The Skagen Falster Gen 6 is coming later this month, priced $295.
