Beyond the new chip, the Fossil Sport will come preloaded with the updated Wear OS, Google's smartwatch operating system. You should get about 24 hours of battery life out of the watch with standard usage, but you can up that to three days in the new battery saver mode.
The Fossil Sport features a sleek, ultra-lightweight design and colourful silicon straps.
In reality, your strap choices obviously aren't endless, but there are 28 different ones to choose from, as Fossil says that the Sport is compatible with all 18mm watch straps.
The watch is stepping up fitness tracking with the new version of Google Fit, GPS and activity tracking. Each Fossil Sport also has Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi.
The Fossil Watch becomes officially available on Fossils website starting today, November 8 and will b e available in select Fossil retail stores around the globe on November 12.
