Fossil on Monday launched the newest evolution of its hybrid smartwatch: the Gen 6 Hybrid Smartwatch. The watch is said to come with essential, everyday smart features, including up to two weeks of battery life, access to Alexa, new SpO2 sensor, Bluetooth 5.0 LE and more.

Gen 6 Hybrid has been launched in two design platforms based on watches Machine and Stella.

Gen 6 Hybrid Stella, featuring a 40.5mm case, is designed with a coin-edge top ring, 150 hand-placed crystals on most styles and bevelled mechanical hands. The smartwatch is available in rose gold-tone, silver-tone and two-tone colorways, with a 3-link bracelet, mesh bracelet, leather strap or silicone strap. For additional personalization, Machine and Stella are interchangeable with 24mm and 18mm straps and bracelets respectively, and all Gen 6 Hybrid smartwatches feature customizable watch faces.

Check the features of the Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid smartwatch here:

1. Access to Alexa features: Set a reminder, add items to a shopping list, control lights and more with an on-the-go Alexa experience. Available exclusively on select Fossil Group devices, Alexa is preloaded on Gen 6 Hybrid and available to pair with phones running the latest version of Android (excluding Go edition and phones without Google Play Store) or iOS in supported countries. Users can interact with Alexa through voice input via the new microphone, seeing Alexa’s response on the readout display.

2. New SpO2 and improved Heart Rate Sensor: In addition to the activity and wellness tracking— sleep, steps, workouts and more — Gen 6 Hybrid boasts a new SpO2 sensor and improved heart rate sensor to unlock more functionality for those working towards their health goals. The SpO2 sensor allows users to track an estimate of blood oxygen measurements to see how well their body is circulating oxygen over time, while the upgraded heart rate sensor allows for continuous tracking and improved signal accuracy.

3. All-New Dashboard: Wearers will enjoy a redesigned, intuitive display, allowing for a more user-friendly interface. Screens with selection options, such as the app launcher or workout selection screens, now follow the smartwatch’s circular design and utilize the mechanical watch hands as pointers, resulting in an easy-read display.
