CES 2022 is a technology playground of exciting announcements, and Razer has another one in their team-up with Fossil on the new Razer x Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatch.
The collaboration between one of the leading technology peripheral brands and Fossil has come together to produce a limited-edition smartwatch specifically designed with gamers in mind, introducing the Razer x Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch loaded with the branding of both companies signature designs at CES 2022.
The Gen 6 smartwatch comes with three different face plate load-outs, in analog, text, and the iconic Razer Chroma, along with two interchangeable straps in green and black. Notably, the Fossil Gen 6 is the first-ever smartwatch to feature the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ platform, allowing for faster loading of applications, more optimal response rates, and more efficient power use.
An overall 30% performance boost from the previous generation, and featuring WearOS from Google, allows the watch to perform stronger and faster in less time. While also coming equipped with staple wellness smartwatch features, it doesn’t hurt that the cutting-edge watch is customizable and nice to look at.
Associate Director of Business Development at Razer, Addie Tan said “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,” including “We 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’ well-being 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.”
Fossil Group EVP Chief Brand Officer, Steve Evans says “At Fossil, our teams always strive for new innovations we can bring to our users, alongside Wear OS by Google and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and we are thrilled to work with another best-in-class partner — Razer… we are excited to collaborate on a smartwatch geared towards gamers’ lifestyle.”
Evans added, “Wellness 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.”
