  • If you’re looking for a smartwatch for $299, the Fossil Gen 6 Venture Edition is the best option.
  • In addition to the redesigned strap design, it has a few additional health features.

There have been several new Gen 6 watches released this week by Fossil, which suggests that they’re having a busy week. A few days after releasing the Gen 6 Hybrid, Fossil has launched the Gen 6 Venture Edition, which is essentially the same as the previous model save for a new strap.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100+ chipset is included in the new model, which has the same specifications and functionality of its predecessor. There is also an identical amount of internal storage and RAM in the Fossil watch, at 8GB.

Environmental concerns were taken into consideration when designing the Gen 6 edition. The fabric and leather strap, measuring 22 millimeters, can be removed and replaced as desired. Using recycled green nylon and brown eco-leather, Fossil claims to have created the band.

The watch’s 44mm stainless steel body features a 1.28-inch AMOLED display, which is the sole size available. In addition to the spinning home button, the casing has two push buttons that may be configured to do certain tasks. Your trekking distance, duration, and altitude are all displayed on the dial, as are your heart rate and an estimate of your blood oxygen level.

With its built-in microphone, the Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid version supports both Alexa and Google Assistant for hands-free operations.

The smartwatch comes preinstalled with the Outdooractive app so that you can keep track of your hiking and riding routes. WaterMinder and MyRadar are two other preinstalled apps that help you keep track of your water intake.

In addition to the improved heart rate sensor and new SpO2 sensor, the smartwatch has a similar design to the Fitbit Versa 3 and Garmin Venu 2, two other top Android smartwatches.
