Fossil has been a significant player in the watch industry, and when smartwatches started coming into the market, they pivoted quickly to include them. Their first few offerings were rough around the edges, but that’s to be expected; they have made improvements over the years and announced the Gen 6 Wellness Edition.
The Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition is powered by the latest version of Wear OS, Snapdragon Wear 4100, rapid charging, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, and a host of other wellness features. This new Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition is available now for US$299, and a handful of new silicone straps are available for US$30.
Here are a few new features and specifications of the Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition.
