Since its inception, a sport smartwatch seems to have become more of a necessity than a mere accessory, as athletes constantly strive to improve their individual performance. More than just a tracker for their workouts, a sport smartwatch is also a companion for the user’s daily life, and the latest iteration of the Fossil Sport aims to not only meet all expectations, but break them too.
Integrated with the latest in cutting edge technology, the new Fossil Sport runs on both the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform, as well as the newly redesigned Wear OS by Google, resulting not only in optimum battery life, but also simple usage. Arguably the biggest addition to the Fossil Sport is the heart-rate tracking function. With the help of Google Fit, heart-rate data during workouts can be logged and pulled out manually. The Fossil Sport comes with untethered GPS, while GPS related functions such as distance and laps can be tracked even without the connected phone in hand.
What’s a workout without a power song? With the Fossil Sport’s improved storage, users are able to store songs in the watch itself, while alternately the user can also utilise the Google Play Store on the watch to download their preferred music app, as well as apps of other suitable variants. Designed to not only be effective in workouts, the Fossil Sport is also dedicated to look good for casual wear as users are able to choose between different coloured strap options. Besides that, the new nylon and aluminium case makes the Fossil Sport the lightest smartwatch to date, while the watch itself also allows customisations such as watch interface.
As technology constantly moves forward, convenience is of the utmost importance. A phone is also a camera, a watch is also a fitness tracker; and for the time being, trust Fossil to set the bar in the sport smartwatch field.
