Fossil launches a new battery-powered hybrid smartwatch for weeks at CES 2023

THE Fossil has just updated its range of smart watches with the model Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition. As its name indicates, we have new hybrid watches focused on the health and well-being of the user. Their look is classic and they bring a new screen electronic ink to expend little energy and deliver more metrics and information on your wrist.

Hybrid watches are a great option for anyone who prefers the look and design of traditional mechanical watches with a few extra features. In particular, tracking key health and wellness metrics.

Unfortunately, there are few manufacturers that offer products of this type, with CASIO and especially FOSSIL being good examples in this area. Proof of this are the new hybrid smartwatch presented during the CES 2023 event in Las Vegas.

Fossil is a benchmark brand in the sector. It is a true giant that, in recent years, has bought several smaller manufacturers to add to its portfolio, such as Skagen. Since then, his commitment to smart watches has been increasing.

We already have the sixth generation of smart watches from the American company focused on well-being. In fact, the collection was nicknamed “Wellness”, a very illustrative name.

The design of the watch is classic with an electronic ink screen, the e-INK that allows you to take advantage of advanced features such as its Bluetooth connection to the smartphone, as well as the user’s physical activity and health metrics.

It should be noted that this new e-Ink screen has a high resolution to facilitate reading content in any situation. However, it won’t sacrifice battery life that promises to give us several weeks of battery life between charges.

The Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition range is available in various styles, different color combinations, case type and materials for both the watch (case) and bracelet. It is a wide range of combinations that give us several variants of the same sixth-generation hybrid watch.

This practice has been applied by Fossil in previous generations and is now highlighted with the new watches shining bright during CES 2023 in Las Vegas.

All models have a silicone or leather/leather strap, 20mm wide and easily replaceable. On the other hand, the box of the clock is integrated stainless steelwith different colors and finishes for more customization options.

This now denser screen displays digital time, as well as various other user health metrics and indicators, in a clearer, easier-to-read manner. The advantage? The autonomy for several weeks in these watches.

We may also be alerted to major notifications coming to the smartphone, and this behavior is defined by the user in the companion app for these Fossil smartwatches. Also, the display is now backlit to make it easier to read.
