Fossil's latest Wear OS smartwatch adds longer battery life for $255

The company's latest smartwatch, the Fossil Sport, is perhaps its most exciting launch in some time - that's because it's powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset.

A few months ago, Qualcomm announced the new Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC for the next-gen smartwatches, and it promised better battery life.

More varied colour options, and more brightly coloured options at that, seems to be a trend this fall: in September, Apple introduced the iPhone XR, which comes in six bright colours.

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.
