Now, with the improved and redesigned Fossil Smartwatches Companion App — we are further cementing our commitment to innovation and functionality being at the forefront of Fossil products,” Johnson Verghese, Managing Director, Fossil Group, India, said in a statement.
Apart from the activity and wellness tracking features, buyers will get an additional new SpO2 sensor on the Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid smartwatch. Also, there’s an improved heart rate sensor. The SpO2 sensor allows users to track an estimate of blood oxygen measurements to see how well their body is circulating oxygen over time, while the upgraded heart rate sensor allows for continuous tracking and improved signal accuracy, the company claimed.
Talking about the design of the Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Machine features a 45-mm case with knurled top ring and pushers, a texture inspired by traditional, industrial machining techniques. The classic style is available in black, silver-tone or smoke with a brushed, 3-link bracelet, mesh bracelet, leather strap or silicone strap.
Gen 6 Hybrid Stella, featuring a 40.5mm case, is designed with a coin-edge top ring, 150 hand-placed crystals on most styles and bevelled mechanical hands. The smartwatch is available in rose gold-tone, silver-tone and two-tone colourways, with a 3-link bracelet, mesh bracelet, leather strap or silicone strap. For additional personalisation, Machine and Stella are interchangeable with 24mm and 18mm straps and bracelets respectively, and all Gen 6 Hybrid smartwatches feature customisable watch faces.
At this price point, the Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid smartwatch competes with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and the OnePlus Watch Cobalt Edition.
