Fossil teases a late August 2021 launch for the Gen 6 smartwatches
The Fossil Gen 6 wearables are smartwatches that have leaked extensively in terms of putative specs and design choices, although the OEM has been able to keep the date of their unveiling a mystery thus far. However, it has now released an email to its subscribers that drops heavy hints that the devices will make it to a launch before September 2021.
Fossil is rumored to produce successors to its Gen 5 line of high-end smartwatches in the near future. These new wearables are thought to be the first to rock the Plus version of the Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform. Now, they may also have a launch date.
The Gen 6 smartwatches are thought to have a range of different styles that are more or less iterative evolutions compared to their previous generations, complete with ostensible women's variants thanks to their almost inevitable bedazzled bezels and gold accents.
Their maker has been rumored to wait until September to confirm or deny these leaks. However, a new "Fossil Insiders" email advises fans that the Gen 6s are coming (way more, and way faster, apparently) soon.
To this end, the circular includes a countdown that ends on August 30, 2021. Therefore, it is now a reasonable assumption that the watches will debut on this date, in some markets at least.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
