Fossil Sport watch announced with Wear 3100 and ultra lightweight body

Fossil's first smartwatch based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform was launched today as the Fossil Sport, boasting an ultra-lightweight design and a wide range of color choices, some of which are now available for purchase online from the watchmaker's official website.

Compared to nearly all of Fossil's previous Wear OS efforts, the aptly named Sport is focused less on traditional style and more on modern functionality.




Fossil also says the Sport is its lightest smartwatch to date. 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 are also two sizes 41mm and 43mm with 18mm or 22mm bands, respectively, and the watch cases are made of aluminum and nylon which keeps the weight down. We don't have the exact weight or display resolution just yet, but we've asked Fossil for clarification on this. On the software side, Fossil has included three watch faces that integrate with Google Fit to help track your fitness, and Fossil has also preloaded apps like Spotify and Noonlight.

Interested? You can buy the Fossil Sport right now from Fossil.com for $255, or from Fossil retail stores beginning Monday, November 12. Just where it ranks among the long list of Wear watches remains to be seen.
