Fossil’s Gen 5 smartwatch adds a speaker, updated Snapdragon chipset
Watchmaker Fossil on Monday revealed its new “redesigned and revolutionised” Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch with “tech that’s audible, lasts longer and optimizes performance”.
The smartwatch now features a speaker so you can answer calls and access Google Assistant, a smart battery mode and 8GB of storage space.
More importantly, the Fossil Gen 5 features the Snadragon 3100 chipset, which Qualcomm announced late last year. 1GB of RAM is another key number for the watch, which should allow Android Wear to run more briskly.
