Fossil has launched its new Gen 5E Smartwatch in India, which is a new addition to its Gen 5 Smartwatches. Fossil aims to bring these watches at more affordable prices and it is even available in 2 sizes, which are 42mm and 44mm.
Commenting on this launch, Johnson Verghese, Managing Director, Fossil Group, India says “The new Fossil Gen 5E is testament to our teams’ effort in creating technology that will not only look fashionable but also help augment the user’s lifestyle,” he further adds “At the heart of it, this new offering from Fossil goes a step further to ensure increased connectedness and stylized designs that we are certain our consumers will love. With all the essential features of our Gen 5 smartwatch, the Gen 5E is keenly priced and will be available online for purchase, on Myntra and Flipkart.”
Now for the watch itself, it comes with an always-on 1.19-inch AMOLED display and also offers limitless options for personalization including various interchangeable straps and watch faces. It is equipped with many new enhancements that allow users to track sleep history, monitor restfulness, set activity goals, and much more. It comes with advanced sensors that provide promising data to power all the health and fitness apps. Additionally, with various smart battery modes including daily mode, extended mode, time-only mode, and custom mode, users can always stay connected with notifications for calls, texts, and apps among others.
It comes in 2 variants which are a 44mm one and the other one is a smaller 42mm one. Both of them have the exact same features, so users are not missing out on any features even if they choose the smaller watch.
Also, as this watch comes with Google’s own Wear OS, we get features like Google Assistant by which users can control their Google Nest devices, lights, music, and more – right from just their wrist.
Shifting towards some onboard specifications of this wearable, we get the Snapdragon WearTM 3100 Platform chip inside. It has 1GB of ram and 4GB of internal storage as well. For battery and charging, we get a 300mAh battery in this watch, and for charging we get support for rapid charging. That helps the watch to charge up to 80% within just 50 minutes.
This watch is priced at INR 18,495, the Gen 5E smartwatch is available at Fossil stores, the fossil’s own site, Flipkart, and Myntra.
