The watch come with a claimed 24+ hours battery life (based on usage) which can go on for 2 additional days in battery saver watch mode.

The smartwatch also comes pre-installed with Spotify, and it supports Bluetooth 4.2 low energy, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and NFC - so it supports Google Pay. The Fossil Sport Smartwatch dons a round dial, an interchangeable silicone strap, and comes in varied colour options for users.

The Fossil Watch becomes officially available on Fossils website starting today, November 8 and will b e available in select Fossil retail stores around the globe on November 12.

Google and Qualcomm finally became serious about their position in the wearable market in the last couple of months by introducing a new chip and a software update to rescue the dying Wear OS ecosystem.

The watch will also be part of a new campaign led by model and marathoner, Candice Huffine.

Fossil claims that the 350mAh battery of Sport Smartwatch is good enough for all-day use.

The watch, which passed through the FCC in September will be available in two sizes: 41mm or 43mm, with a body made from nylon topped with silver, rose gold, gold, blue or red coloured aluminium.

Fossil has no shortage of smartwatches on offer but the one thing its been lacking up to now is a device with the Snapdragon Wear 3100 chip. The main attraction of the watch is that it will be equipped with a Snapdragon 3100 chip. Rapid charging allows the smartwatch to be nearly completely charged within an hour, helping power users from day to night. All of them are supposed to be improved from the previous generation of watches by Fossil. That said, the Apple Watch still lingers in that one-day category, so it's clear people still don't demand more, even if it's inconvenient.

The watch is stepping up fitness tracking with the new version of Google Fit, GPS and activity tracking.
