Fossil Sport watch announced with Wear 3100 and ultra lightweight body

By | 8th November 2018

The Sport is available now for $255.

Fossil is one of the biggest supporters of Google's Wear OS platform, and today, the company announced its latest smartwatch offering as the Fossil Sport.

Fossil's watches are typically designed with fashion in mind, but the Sport is all about being as functional as can be. Not only is it the lightest watch Fossil's ever made, but thanks to its aluminum and nylon case, Fossil says that the Fossil Sport is the "lightest smartwatch to date."

The Sport is available in two case sizes (41mm and 43mm) and is powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor. Announced this September, the Wear 3100's biggest improvement over 2016's Wear 2100 is vastly improved battery life. According to Fossil, the Sport will last a full day in full smartwatch mode and then an additional two days in a low-power, time-telling only mode.

Also packed inside the Fossil Sport are a heart-rate sensor, GPS, and NFC for Google Pay support.

The Fossil Sport is available for purchase today with a starting price of $255 at Fossil's website and will be available in retail stores globally beginning November 12.
