Razer announces a limited edition gaming smartwatch with Fossil
Razer has announced, together with Fossil, a new smartwatch focused on the gamer public: the Razer X Fossil Gen 6. This smartwatch, which comes with a design line clearly inspired by the products of the manufacturer of gaming devices, maintains all the characteristics of the Fossil Gen 6, the flagship wearable of the American fashion firm. Adding, in addition, some differential aspects.
One of the novelties of this Razer X Fossil Gen 6 is the possibility of selecting up to three exclusive areas of the gaming brand for the 1.28-inch touch screen. The spheres include some of the most distinctive aspects of the brand, such as the logo in a green tone or the classic Chroma RGB colors present in peripherals and laptops. The interface, which runs on WearOS, Google's operating system, has also been tweaked to include a color palette and some distinctive Razer elements.
On the outside of the Razer X Fossil Gen 6 a Gaming aesthetic is also achieved thanks to the two interchangeable 22mm straps that come with the device. One of them in a black tone and another in the classic bright green. The case, which is 44mm, maintains the rounded shape of the Fossil Gen 6. Also present are the two buttons to perform actions on the interface and a third rotating start button that mimics the crown of a conventional watch.
Razer X Fossil Gen 6: a gaming watch with functions for physical activity and health
Regarding the specifications, the Razer X Fossil Gen 6 includes a Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor, one of the most powerful SoCs for smart watches. It also comes with important functions focused on health and sports. Among them, the possibility of measuring heart rate, blood oxygen (spO2) or monitoring sleep.
This last feature, however, is not always useful. Above all, because this type of device has a battery life of a few days. Therefore, it is best to charge the watch overnight. However, the manufacturer says that the charger of the Razer X Fossil Gen 6 is capable of supplying up to 80% of the battery in just 30 minutes, so it can be charged in the morning. Additionally, and thanks to the sensors to measure the pulse or blood oxygen, a feature is also added that allows knowing an approximation of the cardiorespiratory capacity (VO2 max).
The smartwatch will be available in limited units, with only 1,337 models on sale at a price of $329. It can be purchased both on the Razer online portal and on the Fossil website.
