Fossil Gen 6 Overview:
Design and Display
Fossil Gen 6 comes in two sizes: 42 and 44mm sizes. Still, both the variants have the same screen size, that is the 1.28-inch. It’s an AMOLED display with 416 x 416 resolution and 326ppi. You also get a 3ATM water resistance, meaning you can go light swimming with it on your wrist.
The watch comes in a stainless-steel case with a trio of buttons on the right, including a rotating crown in the center. The watch also features a speaker and microphone, allowing you to accept or make calls directly from the watch.
Snapdragon Wear 4100+
Under the hood, Fossil Gen 6 is powered by a Snapdragon Wear 4100+, which was launched last year alongside the regular Wear 4100 that we recently saw in Mobvoi TicWatch E3. The only difference between the Plus and non-plus variants is the presence of a power-efficient co-processor on the former.
According to Qualcomm, the Wear 4100 series is it’s 85% compared against the Snapdragon 3100.
Fossil has backed the chipset with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. Moving on, the smartwatch boots on last-gen Wear OS, however, Fossil has promised a Wear OS 3 update in 2022. It also comes with Google Voice Assistant support built-in.
