Fossil Sport smartwatch based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 SoC announced

Fossil Sport smartwatch based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 SoC announced

Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor is making its way into another Wear OS smartwatch.

Fossil Sport launches with six colourways, two case sizes (41 and 43 mm respectively), and endless strap options. It comes with standard 18mm or 22mm watch straps and the watch itself comes in 41mm and 43mm sizes.

German luxury goods maker Montblanc was the first to market with a Snapdragon Wear 3100-powered smartwatch. There's NFC for Google Pay, GPS, 5 ATM water resistance, a heart-rate monitor and an altimeter.

The watch will be priced at $255 (or around $351.79 AUD) or £249 in the United Kingdom and is available to pre-order in the United Kingdom and USA with shipping set to begin on November 12th. While the exact details are not revealed, one can expect an OLED panel on the latest Fossil Sport. I'll have to see how it does in testing, but I wouldn't be shocked if the Fossil Sport was more of a casual watch with a sporty aesthetic than a real fitness smartwatch. Fossil says you'll be able to get the watch, buy some straps, and maybe even win some prizes.




The watch will also be part of a new campaign led by model and marathoner, Candice Huffine.

As mentioned, Fossil notes that the wearable can last for up to a day, and when in low power mode, the battery can extend up to two days as well. It offers Quick Swipe, faster access to information, health coaching from Google Fit and Google Assistant.

All watches will come with new applications auto-installed, including streaming music service, Spotify, and peace of mind and safety app, Noonlight. It will retail for $255 and be available for purchase starting today at www.fossil.com and in select Fossil retail stores globally on November 12th.

Fossil has no shortage of smartwatches on offer but the one thing its been lacking up to now is a device with the Snapdragon Wear 3100 chip.
