Fossil launches Sport Smartwatch, first on Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 3100

Fossil launches Fossil Sport, a Wear OS smartwatch running the Snapdragon 3100 - GSMArena.com news

Thankfully, the watch comes with rapid charging technology, which means you can fully top-up the battery in just an hour.

The Fossil Sport is among the first smartwatches to contain the new Snapdragon Wear 3100 chip from Qualcomm.

Fossil is bringing its sport wearables up to speed with the new Sport Smartwatch powered by Wear OS by Google and a Snapdragon 3100 chip - the same chip used in the Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon and Montblanc Summit 2. But the Sport runs on the new 3100 SoC, which should provide noticeable improvements in battery life and performance.

Fossil has announced its latest- Fossil Sport Smartwatch. It sort of resembles the old LG Watch Style-a good thing since it was one of less fugly smartwatches from the past two years.

The watch comes in either a 41mm or 43mm aluminum, nylon case. The main difference is the Sport's design relies on a nice pop of color-sort of like the Baby-G watches of yesteryear. The larger 43-millimeter model also seems to be more limited in terms of color choices, and can only be pre-ordered with a Black or Smokey Blue Silicone wrist strap.

The Wear OS device has a full touchscreen and two different sizes to choose from.

The Fossil Sport will come priced at $255 and is available to buy now on Fossil's website, rolling out to Fossil retail stores on 12 November.
