Fossil has unveiled its newest Wear OS device, the Sport Smartwatch. On top of that, they’ve also announced that it will be their first watch to use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 chip for power. Using the new tech means that it should have a power management system better than any other Wear OS device not using the same chip.

According to a number of reports, the Snapdragon 3100 chip is just a somewhat scaled down version of what they use for other devices. This lets it pack a whole lot more punch for its size. Speaking about the chip, as well as Fossil’s Sport Smartwatch, Steve Evans, EVP Fossil Group said:

“For several years, the health and wellness industry has been converging with smartwatch technology—and Fossil knew there was a tremendous opportunity to provide a connected option for the design-conscious consumer looking to bring style to their wrist. We know our consumers want versatility both in their activity and their accessories, which is why we wanted to bring a smartwatch to market that is a fit for every style.

The Sport Smartwatch is currently being praised for its ambient mode, integrated heart rate sensor, 350 mAh battery (with a promised all-day battery life), as well as NFC and GPS capabilities. Fossil has also said that it improves on a number of functions.

Pricing for the new Fossil Sport smartwatch begins at $255.
