The new chip should make a major difference in battery life, which has been one of the main issues holding smartwatches back.
Compared to nearly all of Fossil's previous Wear OS efforts, the aptly named Sport is focused less on traditional style and more on modern functionality.
The watch houses a 350 mAh battery, and the company says you should be able to get more than a day's worth of battery life out of the device.More news: Here’s what we know about the victims of the California shooting

No details on the specs have been announced beyond that it will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC, and will come with a battery capable of full days use with a battery saver mode that can extend to two days.
"We know our consumers want versatility both in their activity and their accessories, which is why we wanted to bring a smartwatch to market that is a fit for every style", Steve Evans, executive vice president of Fossil Group, said in a press release about the new watch.
And, naturally, the whole show will continue to run on Google's Wear OS platform, which was recently given a makeover in order to improve day-to-day usability.
I think Fossil is offering a pretty compelling package at this price point, especially considering the hardware and newer chipset. This is pretty standard for Fossil smartwatches.
The Fossil Sport costs £249 and is available to purchase now from Fossil's website.
