Razer gets its Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch with its own limited edition for gamers
Fossil is leaving its comfort zone to launch a new smartwatch in partnership with Razer. The new Razer X Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatch brings the best of the Fossil Gen 6 and adds a little extra Razer flavor that the companies hope will appeal to gamers and Wear OS fans.
Off the bat, you will not see this stylish watch embellished in Chroma RGB lighting as you would expect. Instead, the Razer X Fossil Gen 6 features unique Razer watch faces, from a standard Analog with Razer branding to a Text watch face that interprets the current era.
The watch also has a Chroma watch face, which displays a colored ring around the edge of the display. This watch face can be customized with four Razer Chroma RGB effects, whether you want a single color that fits your gaming situation on some of the best Razer keyboards, or you prefer multiple views.
The watch also comes with two straps designed specifically in Razer’s signature black and bright green colors.
Plus, the watch is pretty much the same as the Gen 6 smartwatch. It features the same 44mm case size with a 1.28-inch OLED display, 8GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, fast charging capabilities, and Wear OS 2, all powered by the Snapdragon Wear 4100+. Fortunately, it will be among the best Wear OS watches Wear OS 3 gets when it hits conventional devices sometime this year.
As far as partnerships go, it's a good start for Fossil, although we would like to see more opportunities emerge from this and future collaborations, something that the company hopes to explore as well.
For now, interested parties need to act fast if they want to grab one of these limited edition smartwatches. Fossil states that it only makes 1,337 units that will be sold on Jan. 10 for $ 329 at Fossil online stores and select retail outlets.
