Fossil Introduces the next generation of Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatches – Gen 6 Venture – Crafted with Recyclable Materials

Fossil is excited to launch the newest evolution of our iconic Gen 6 Smartwatch: The Venture edition. The platform features the classic style of our bestselling traditional watches while boasting essential, everyday smart features, including up to two weeks of battery life*, access to Alexa**, new SpO2 sensor, Bluetooth® 5.0 LE and more. Made entirely with recyclable materials, the strap is woven with rPET made from recycled plastic bottles and eco leather. The exclusive watch face comes equipped with a built-in compass and glanceable stats for your outdoor adventures!

Additionally, alongside the smartwatch release is the introduction of the redesigned Fossil Smartwatches companion app, with more features, functionality and improved user experience.

Gen 6 Venture will launch globally on June 27 for INR 23,995, and users will enjoy the following new features:

Access To Favorite Alexa Features

Set a reminder, add items to a shopping list, control lights and more with an on-the-go Alexa experience. Available exclusively on select Fossil Group devices, Alexa is preloaded on Gen 6 Venture and available to pair with phones running the latest version of Android™ (excluding Go edition and phones without Google Play Store) or iOS in supported countries. Users can interact with Alexa through voice input via the new microphone, seeing Alexa’s response on the readout display.

New SpO2 and Improved Heart Rate Sensor

In addition to the activity and wellness tracking users have enjoyed in existing generations — sleep, steps, workouts and more — Gen 6 Venture boasts a new SpO2 sensor and improved heart rate sensor to unlock more functionality for those working towards their health goals. The SpO2 sensor allows users to track an estimate of blood oxygen measurements to see how well their body is circulating oxygen over time, while the upgraded heart rate sensor allows for continuous tracking and improved signal accuracy.

All-New Dashboard

Wearers will enjoy a redesigned, intuitive display, allowing for a more user-friendly interface. Screens with selection options, such as the app launcher or workout selection screens, now follow the smartwatch’s circular design and utilize the mechanical watch hands as pointers, resulting in an easy-read display.

We are also excited to release the new Fossil Smartwatches companion app, redesigned with more features and an improved user interface. The app, which is compatible with all hybrid Fossil smartwatches, allows users to manage their devices, including:

  • Personalize Their App Homescreen – Daily snapshot with key updates, watch face syncing and a comprehensive wellness overview.
  • Customize Their Watch – Change the watch face, quick settings and more.
  • See Stats At-A-Glance – Find a complete overview of activity, workouts and health metrics, all in one screen.
  • Outdoor Active: allows saving hiking, biking, and trail maps to your watch

**Extended premium service trial for Venture Edition watches

  • WaterMinder: Keep track of water intake and be reminded to stay hydrated on the trails

**Extended premium service trial for Venture Edition watches

  • MyRadar: displays animated weather radar around your current location, allowing you to quickly see what weather is coming your way

Existing users who have the Fossil Smartwatches app will receive this update automatically, and new users can download the Fossil Smartwatches app now for both iOS and Android™.
