Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Fossil’s upcoming smartwatch to run on Google’s new Wear OS

San Francisco, June 6

US-based fashion brand Fossil, the biggest Wear OS wearables maker, is planning to launch a premium Gen 6 smartwatch that will run on Google’s revamped operating system for the devices.

Fossil executives told CNET that their upcoming Android smartwatches will be entirely new, featuring chips with faster performance, better battery life, and global LTE cellular options, Gizmodo reported.

The company plans to launch a sole premium watch, its most successful category, as its flagship under the new Wear OS. However, other brands in the Fossil Group, which include Diesel and Michael Kors, will likely develop their watches.

According to CNET, the newest Fossil smartwatch should have features similar to what Google and Samsung offer.

In May, the tech behemoths announced that they would be partnering up to create a new smartwatch operating system that aims to be 30 per cent faster at launching apps and allows for features such as continuous heart rate monitoring and sleep tracking.

“All of the software benefits that Google’s talking about and launching with the unified platform is something we’ll be building into that as well,” Fossil chief commercial officer Greg McKelvey told CNET.

As far as hardware goes, Fossil said it has some “pretty major” upgrades planned for its future smartwatches. These could include faster performance, better battery life, and more advanced health features.

The watch’s touchscreen would remain the principal way to interact with the device, Prokup explained, while the buttons and crowns would be design flairs and shortcuts.

There is some bad news if you already own a Fossil smartwatch now, though, they won’t be able to upgrade to Google’s new Wear OS.

Although the company was tight-lipped on price, CNET speculated that it could be on par with the newest Apple Watch Series 6, which starts at $400. — IANS
