Fossil today announced a new Wear OS-based smartwatch that is among the first to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 3100 Wear platform and the latest version of Wear OS. Qualcomm announced the system-on-a-chip, which makes big gains in maximizing battery life, earlier this year. Fossil says in normal mode the Sport can last more than a full day, while battery saver mode extends uptime to closer to three days. The Fossil Sport comes in 43mm and 41mm sizes with a swim proof aluminum/nylon casing. It is sold in more than a half-dozen colors and supports swappable straps. Other features include Bluetooth 4.2 LE, GPS, NFC with Google Pay, wireless charging, and Wear OS-based alerts. The Fossil Sport Watch is available online today and reaches retail shops on November 12. It costs $255.
