The Razer X Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatch

Razer™ adds to its lifestyle line of products with The Razer X Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatch. An exciting new collaboration with watch manufacturer Fossil, the limited edition smartwatch is a cobranded wearable leveraging the best of both worlds.

Let’s dive into what we know so far.

The Razer X Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatch will be the first smartwatch powered by the Snapdragon Wear™ 4100+ platform. This means faster app load times, smooth responsive user experiences, and efficient power consumption as well as fast charging while running Wear OS by Google™. Razer states that The Razer X Fossil Smartwatch would be able to reach 80% charge in only a little more than 30 minutes of charging. This, combined with the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ platform’s decreased power consumption and Fossil Group-developed Smart Battery Modes, enables users to quickly reach a full charge in the morning after tracking [their] sleep†.

The smartwatch will also include wellness features that align with Razer’s overall “Champions Start from Within” initiative. This is geared towards four key verticals: physical activity, mental health, sleep, and nutrition. These verticals were developed together by Razer with esports wellness experts, professional athletes, thought leaders, and leading esports teams. You will be able to track your wellness goals and monitor your heart rate throughout the day and even schedule a daily walk. You will also be able to keep yourself hands-free and untethered through the use of the built-in microphone for calls and messaging.

We are excited to partner with Fossil to design a limited-edition smartwatch and to share the Razer X Fossil Gen 6 with our community of gamers around the world, [w]e are always on the lookout for opportunities to compliment gamers’ lifestyles and to bring them products that not only look good but bring value to their lives as well. This is why we kept the gamers’ wellbeing at the heart of the Razer X Fossil Gen 6. Leveraging Fossil’s innovative technology and Razer’s iconic design aesthetic, this smartwatch will be the perfect accessory to keep you ahead of the game.

The gaming industry has grown tremendously over the recent years, and we are excited to collaborate on a smartwatch geared towards gamers’ lifestyle, [w]ellness is also incredibly important to our customers, and the Gen 6 was designed with the wearer’s everyday wellness goals in-mind—whether it’s taking a moment to reset with a guided breathing session, tracking your sleep, or monitoring your heart rate during a day full of gaming.
