Fossil, which also owns Michael Kors and Skagen brands, has renewed its range of wearable smart devices this year.
Fossil has launched this year’s collection under several brands, with different designs but the same hardware, including an LTE-capable piece using Wear OS and a hybrid watch with an e-ink display. The smart watches, without exception, feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 set, the Fossil Gen 5 LTE with eSIM support, 1 GB of system memory and 8 GB of internal storage. The fifth-generation Fossil 45-millimeter enclosure is 1.3 inches in color, 416 x 416 resolution AMOLED panel with AoD function.

The three physical buttons are freely configurable and the crown can be rotated. In addition to 3 ATM pressure tolerances, the devices are in principle also suitable for swimming and know everything you would expect from a smartwatch working with Wear OS, including Google Pay payment. In addition to NFC, a GPS and WiFi modem are also included in the structure, while the optical sensor only measures the heart rate, not the blood oxygen level. The device works with Nest devices, and we can also control some Toyota models remotely.
Fossil Gen 5 LTE [+]
The Fossil Gen 5 LTE will be available for the first time in the United States in the spring at a price of $ 350 (HUF 103,000). For now, only Verizon can provide 4G connectivity, and the watch will only be compatible with Android phones. IOS support and international availability are yet to come.

A Michael Kors Access Gen 5E it is also based on Qualcomm’s platform, but LTE connectivity is not an option, but there are NFC and Google Pay, and two designs to choose from, both with a 1.19-inch AMOLED display. The cheaper version (MKGO) is available in an aluminum housing with a silicone strap for $ 250, and the more expensive one (Darci) with a stainless steel housing and seven-strand metal strap for $ 350. There is no eSIM, but there is a microphone and a speaker, so you can make and receive calls directly from the watch using the connected device.
Skagen Jorn Hybrid HR [+]
Much more interesting is Fossil’s Skagen brand, which follows the Danish design language (also Texas, by the way) and has been expanded with a hybrid model with an e-ink display. THE Jorn Hybrid HR Available in 35 and 42 millimeter sizes and five styles with two weeks of uptime and fast charging (80% can be achieved in fifty minutes). Otherwise, we get the usual functions like sleep tracking, wake up, activity tracking, music control, stopwatch, notification alarm and of course heart rate measurement. The Jorn Hybrid HR will be available Jan. 26 and will open at $ 195.
