Fossil exhibits new wearables, including Android Wear smartwatch
Fossil’s been making wearables since, well, since before we really had smartphones. We’ve been following the company’s work with such devices going back well over a decade at this point, and even with the mobile landscape having changed as much as it has, Fossil’s still at it. At this year’s Intel Developer Forum, Fossil has taken the opportunity to introduce a range of new wearable devices, including a basic phone-connected watch, a connected bracelet, and a full-blown Android Wear smartwatch.
Much like the upcoming Tag Heuer smartwatch, this Fossil model features Intel silicon, though the company hasn’t yet gone into detail about technical specifics. All we really know for now is that the Fossil smartwatch will have a circular display that appears to have the same flat-tire occlusion as the Moto 360; that may prove to be an unfortunate choice for Fossil, especially as other manufacturers deliver round-screened smartwatches that avoid such compromises.
Fossil’s expected to give the smartwatch a more thorough introduction as we get closer to the start of sales, which should arrive in time for the holiday season. As of yet, we haven’t heard a peep about pricing, but we’re sure details like that will emerge in the months to come.
