Fossil is all set to launch its successor Fossil 6th gen smartwatch in 2021 after the launch of the Fossil 5th generation smartwatch that was launched over a year ago. The company is working to launch a new smartwatch in the year 2021.
The upcoming fossil 6th generation smartwatch has been spotted on the FCC website. Fossil 6th generation smartwatch is coming with a model number C1NF1. This looks just like the model DW11 that was spotted on Bluetooth SIG that came ago a year before.
The four models that were earlier spotted on FCC in September 2020 were the DW11F1, DW11F2, DW11M1, and DW11M2.
The FCC reports show that the next generation will be supporting LTE connectivity. It is also supporting 2,4,12,13 bands. The fossil 6th generation may come up with features like the support for Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth.
The 6th generation smartwatch has a battery tested APP00310 with 2.85Vdc and a power rating of 0.4Ah. Though the capacity of the battery is still not mentioned anywhere.
The battery used in this has been developed by APack Technology CO., LTD. which is a Taiwan-based battery manufacturer.
We can consider it to be great competition to others like the others. Like all the apple series watch and the Samsung galaxy watch 3 seems as a competition to this fossil 6th gen smartwatch. They are good for blood oxygen monitoring. So this fossil 6th gen smartwatch is coming as a rival in its features to others. It’s fixing its last year’s flaws in this.
