CES 2022 | Razer X Fossil Gen 6: Limited edition smartwatch revealed for gamers who want a Wear OS 2 smartwatch
Razer has announced the Razer X Fossil Gen 6, a Razer-themed edition of the Fossil Gen 6. The changes between the new smartwatch and the Fossil Gen 6 are purely cosmetic, though. According to Razer, it has created two new watch straps, both silicone. Additionally, it has developed three watch faces, including one with Razer Chroma elements.
However, Razer has not made any hardware changes from the standard Fossil Gen 6. Hence, the Razer X Fossil Gen 6 has a Snapdragon Wear 4100+ SoC and runs Wear OS 2.0. Anecdotally, the Fossil Gen 6 lasts approximately a day between charges. Addie Tan, Associate Director of Business Development at Razer, explains Razer's decision making behind partnering with Fossil:
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. 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.
The Razer X Fossil Gen 6 will launch later this month for US$329. The smartwatch will be available globally, but only 1,337 units will be created. For reference, the Razer X Fossil Gen 6 will be orderable from Fossil and Razer directly; Fossil will continue to sell the Gen 6.
