Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch declassified by Amazon ahead of time

Fossil is preparing a new generation of Fossil Gen 6 smartwatches. They were approved by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) back in late 2020, and in June Fossil representatives hinted at their imminent release. Now all the details about the watch have become known before the announcement thanks to Amazon. 

The details and official images were shared by the well-known German resource WinFuture, behind which is the equally well-known informant Roland Quandt with a long track record of reliable leaks. The original source of the leak was a page at the online giant Amazon, which was quickly removed from the public domain. 

The new Fossil Gen 6 watch is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100+ SoC and WearOS will be the software base. Also, the watch will receive a SpO2 sensor to track the oxygen content in the blood, will be able to track the quality of sleep, pulse, the number of calories burned, and so on. 

The watch will be produced in sizes 42 m and 44 mm. The design is already familiar to Fossil users - around the screen and three buttons on the right edge.

The device is equipped with a 1.28-inch OLED display with a resolution of 416 x 416 pixels, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of flash memory, there is a GPS module, Bluetooth 5.0, and water resistance (5ATM, up to 50 meters). 

The battery life is 24 hours, but there will also be an energy-saving mode, in which the watch can work for several days without recharging. In Germany, the sale is scheduled for September 27, prices range from 299 to 329 euros.
