Based on Fossil’s Gen 6 model, which is the first to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 41000+ chipset, this Google Wear OS smartwatch is said to have a 30% performance boost over its direct predecessor like faster application loading time and more responsive user experience.

The Razer X Fossil Gen 6 features a 44mm black case with a 1.28-inch circular display and is water resistant down to 30m. There will be three exclusive Razer watch faces with a user interface inspired by Razer.
