Compared to nearly all of Fossil's previous Wear OS efforts, the aptly named Sport is focused less on traditional style and more on modern functionality.

"Over the last three years, Fossil and Qualcomm have collaborated closely to launch a series of products and have led the Wear OS by Google smartwatch segment", Pankaj said in a statement. Beyond color choices, the Fossil Sport seems to offer a good amount of functionality, thanks at least in part to the Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform at the heart of the device. There's also a new battery saving mode, bringing an additional two days of telling the time in an "ambient mode". It's also running the revamped Wear OS that just started rolling out in September.

The array of sensors included with the Fossil Sport Smartwatch includes Global Positioning System, heart rate, NFC, altimeter, gyroscope, accelerometer, and ambient light. It comes with standard 18mm or 22mm watch straps and the watch itself comes in 41mm and 43mm sizes. The recently announced Wear OS Spotify app will also, Fossil says, be pre-loaded onto the watch for use straight out of the box as will personal safety app Noonlight.
