After launching the limited edition Skagen Falster Gen 6 and Razer x Fossil smartwatches earlier this year, Fossil has now announced two new smartwatches as part of its new Gen 6 Hybrid range. The new Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid smartwatch features SpO2 tracking and Amazon Alexa support, along with other fitness tracking features.
According to a recent report by Android Authority, the new Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid range includes two designs – the Machine and the Stella. The 45mm Gen 6 Hybrid Machine comes with three color options – black, silver and smoke. The Gen 6 Hybrid Stella, on the other hand, features a smaller 40.5mm case and three colors – rose gold, silver, and two-tone. Both models include interchangeable scopes, with the machine supporting 24mm scopes and the Stella supporting 18mm scopes.
In terms of features, the new Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid range offers support for blood oxygen monitoring, heart rate tracking, smart notifications and customizable watch faces. As mentioned earlier, the watches also feature Amazon Alexa support and come with a built-in microphone to help users interact with the digital assistant.
Along with the new smartwatches, Fossil has also released a revamped version of the smartwatch companion app – Fossil Smartwatches. The updated app brings support for more customization features and quick metrics, including a daily roundup of key details. If you own a Fossil Hybrid smartwatch, you can download the updated companion app from the Play Store link given below. The app is also available on the Apple App Store.
The new Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid range will go on sale globally starting July 27. It will be available through Fossil’s website and offline retail stores. Both models will be available starting at $229.
