Overall, it's a more preppy style than the just-reviewed Fossil Q Explorist HR and Fossil Q Venture HR.

The rollout of new Wear OS watches running the newly announced Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC has been slow (and expensive) with the Mont Blanc Summit the first, but Fossil will be second with the Fossil Sport and it's a colourful watch with Wear OS on board.

Like the sound of Fossil's new smartwatch?

We've seen too many smartwatches come to market recently with Qualcomm's two-year-old Snapdragon Wear 2100.

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.




The Fossil Sport will also come in two case sizes, 41 mm and 43 mm, which are roughly the same sizes as an Apple Watch Series 4 (though, clearly, a different shape).

The new chip should make a major difference in battery life, which has been one of the main issues holding smartwatches back.

Fossil says the watch's 350mAh battery will last upwards of 24 hours on a single charge, and there's even a new battery saver mode that will supposedly eke out two extra days of battery life.

The new chip should also provide a few other nice features, like an enhanced "ambient mode" and some better watch faces, although Fossil hasn't given much more detail than that.

Compared to nearly all of Fossil's previous Wear OS efforts, the aptly named Sport is focused less on traditional style and more on modern functionality.
