Fossil Sport comes with Snapdragon Wear 3100 to extend battery life

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

It's hard to take Google's Wear OS software platform seriously in the Apple-dominated smartwatch market when so many recent releases have come powered by an nearly three year-old processor.

Fossil Sport seems to have a few things going for it: It's not too expensive at $255 (about £200 or AU$350), it claims to be the lightest Wear OS watch and it has lots of extras. But the Sport runs on the new 3100 SoC, which should provide noticeable improvements in battery life and performance. The watch can track your heart rate and record runs and workouts with its altimeter, accelerometer, and gyroscope sensors and Global Positioning System functionality. There's also a new battery saving mode, bringing an additional two days of telling the time in an "ambient mode".

There's also a good reason why the Fossil Sport is 55 bucks pricier than the Fitbit Versa. It's also running the revamped Wear OS that just started rolling out in September. It comes with standard 18mm or 22mm watch straps and the watch itself comes in 41mm and 43mm sizes.

While there's still a noticeable lack of smartphone manufacturers working with Wear OS, Fossil is still churning out Wear OS watches left and right.

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. One that's meant to make smartwatches more useful and support longer battery life.
