We've seen too many smartwatches come to market recently with Qualcomm's two-year-old Snapdragon Wear 2100.
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.
Integrating the 3100 chip means that the watch's battery life is expected to last over 24 hours when it's in "smartwatch mode" and it lasts over two days when set to watch-only mode. The newly redesigned Google Fit app will be a great companion to the Fossil Sport along with the snappy Snapdragon 3100. A few flavors are only available for pre-order as of this writing, but every variant carries the same price of $255, regardless of color and size.
Also packed inside the Fossil Sport are a heart-rate sensor, GPS, and NFC for Google Pay support. The fitness-oriented Wear OS device will run the latest version of Wear OS with a revamped fitness and navigation UI. It is available as of now on Fossil.com, and it will become available in select Fossil brand stores around the world starting November 12. Meanwhile, the Fossil Sport launches with six colorways, two case sizes (41 and 43 mm), plus a variety of strap options. But the Fossil Sport at least sounds like it's not outrageously priced.
