Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition is now official

Fossil is undoubtedly making a name for itself in the smartwatch world, and today, the company announced the Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition. I like Fossil smartwatches because they don’t completely lose the essence of a traditional watch, as the hands are not part of the smartwatch and are set through the crown. And no, this watch will not run Wear OS. However, you can purchase a separate copy of the same watch with this operating system inside.

Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition is available in three colors and will be available on January 5th

Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition has mechanical hands and a grayscale electronic backlit display. You also get a dial with hour and minute markers around the screen.

The Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition is made of stainless steel with a diameter of 44 mm and a thickness of only 11.4 mm. The lug width on this watch is 20mm so it will definitely support most watch bracelets or straps you want to attach it to.

The watch is undeniably large, but this will result in up to two weeks of battery life, and with just 60 minutes of charging, you’ll get 80% more battery life. However, the one thing that disappoints me about this watch is that you only get 30 meters of water resistance, which isn’t enough for many users.

For those wondering, the Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition can be used as a smartwatch since it can receive notifications for texts, calls, and other apps. You’ll also be able to get full media controls and do all the other tasks you would on a smartwatch.

Fossil has added features like a heart rate sensor, blood oxygen, VO2 Max, and exercise detection. You also get a “Wellness Gauge” wallpaper.

For those interested in purchasing, the Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition is available in black dial and case, blue dial and silver case, and pink dial and silver case. The watch will cost $229 and will be available starting at the hour.
