Fossil announces Razer X Fossil amd Skagen Falster Gen 6 watches
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.

The band looks exactly like the one on the first Galaxy Watch. Still a nice smartwatch though, I might even buy one and wear it occasionally.

The battery backup is pathetic of smart watches please do something about that first before introducing any new version. What will the updates do of battery backup is not good.
