This Is The Fossil Android Wear Smartwatch

Well before the release of the first Android Wear smartwatch, we knew that many manufacturers had signed on to create different models. Many were those we expected like Samsung, LG, and Motorola, however others were from companies many didn’t quite expect. One of those was Fossil, one of the most popular watch makers on the market, but in the world of mechanical watches. Today at Intel’s developer conference, Fossil unveiled their first Android Wear device to the public, and it looks pretty sweet.

The design of this watch incorporates a polished metal body and a circular display. It’s a design that takes pieces of the LG Watch Urbane and the Moto 360 into account and smashes them into one, and honestly, it looks really great.

Software wise this runs Android Wear, but under the hood it swaps the standard Snapdragon 400/410 for an Intel processor. This marks the first Android Wear device to run on Intel’s platform, so it’ll be interesting to see how that plays out. Oh, and did I mention it has a flat tire? Cause it has a flat tire.

The Fossil smartwatch has an awesome design, but DAT flat tire...

As of right now there’s no information regarding pricing, further specifications, or a specific release window. We do know however that it will be available before the holiday season.
