Fossil Gen 6 review: sleek design, poor battery

The Fossil watches have been solid Wear OS devices leaning on sleek design rather than pioneering new features. The new Fossil Gen 6 follows in this tradition, packing a few new perks that few others do: the Snapdragon 4100 Plus chipset and, eventually (in 2022), the new Wear OS 3, better known as the version that combines Google’s wearable operating system and Samsung’s Tizen OS.

You could get Wear OS 3 now in the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, but that wearable only works with Android phones, and some features won’t even function unless the device is linked to Samsung handsets. Thus, the Fossil Gen 6 is the main alternative for folks who own an iPhone or just like the sleek Fossil look.
