THE ALL NEW FOSSIL SPORT DEBUTS WITH QUALCOMM SNAPDRAGON WEAR 3100 IN INDIA
INDIA, 3 JUNE, 2019 —Fossil is excited to announce the newest addition to its wearables assortment: the Fossil Sport Smartwatch. Based on the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ 3100 platform and the newly redesigned Wear OS by Google™ , the watch boasts of various new technology features including extended battery life, a new battery saving mode, enhanced ambient mode, integrated heart rate and GPS capabilities. The all new Fossil Sport is designed to be the ideal companion for all health and activity enthusiasts in striking the right balance between all aspects of their lifestyle – be it work or workout.
''It is with great pride that we are launching the Fossil Sport watch in India'' says Johnson Verghese, Managing Director, Fossil Group, India said, “Fossil as a brand has always stood for innovation as one of its core values allowing our designers to create unique styles in all accessory categories, but especially smartwatches. Fossil is focused on bridging the gap between fashion and technology, and thanks to our partnership with Wear OS by Google, the Sport smartwatch is our most innovative and colorful design to date. This watch features an ultra-lightweight case, competitive technology, and unique fitness forward features that we know our customers are looking for in today’s rapidly growing smartwatch market.”
"For several years, the health and wellness industry has been converging with smartwatch technology—and Fossil knew there was a tremendous opportunity to provide a connected option for the design-conscious consumer looking to bring style to their wrist. We know our consumers want versatility both in their activity and their accessories, which is why we wanted to bring a smartwatch to market that is a fit for every style,’’ says Steve Evans, EVP Fossil Group. ‘’We're incredibly excited to be able to offer a colorful sport smartwatch with endless customization and equipped with latest Google and Qualcomm technology for a best-in-class consumer experience."
Fossil Sport launches with six colorways, two case sizes (41 and 43 mm respectively), and endless strap options. The new nylon and aluminum case make this the lightest smartwatch to date and sits alongside 28 new silicone straps to give the wearer endless colorful combinations.
Snapdragon Wear 3100 Platform
Utilizing the latest Snapdragon Wear 3100 Platform, Fossil Sport helps customers achieve more than a day’s worth of battery life in the full smartwatch experience, and offers a new battery saving mode that adds an additional two days of telling time. So, whether you forget your charger or just choose to unplug on the weekends, battery saver is designed to stretch your watch battery to last until you can charge again. As software experience continues to evolve, battery life will be further optimized. The Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform enhances the ambient mode allowing for an improved user experience--select dials will leverage the new platform to showcase color and a sweeping second hand for more dynamic style.
Wear OS by Google Redesign
The evolved Wear OS by Google design simplifies and improves the overall experience. With a quick swipe, users can now access their information faster, receive proactive help from the Google Assistant and get smarter health coaching from Google Fit. Fossil has also created three hero watch faces that integrate Google Fit to show progress towards two new activity goals, Move Minutes and Heart Points, which Google Fit designed based on health recommendations from the World Health Organization and the American Heart Association.
Additionally, with integrated sensor processing, heart rate, optimized connectivity and GPS capabilities on the platform, the Fossil Sport brings a rich set of features to its consumers. Rapid charging allows the smartwatch to be almost completely charged within an hour, helping power users from day to night. All watches will also come with new applications auto-installed, including leading streaming music service, Spotify and peace of mind and safety app, Noonlight.
With this new generation of watch, Fossil showcases a unique, colorful take on technology and redefining what it means to bring activity and balance to your lifestyle. The added functions will give users a 360-holistic way to track all parts of their lives, while keeping true to the authentic creative spirit of innovative watch design that Fossil was founded on more than 30 years ago.
