CES 2020 is going on and almost all the tech giants have unveiled their latest technological innovations. Companies like Fossil, Skagen, and Suunto have unveiled their latest smartwatches running on Wear OS, and we are here for just the same. Let’s have a look at some of the newest wearable tech the CES 2020 has showcased to the world.
Diesel, Fossil, Skagen, and Suunto Unveil Their Latest Smartwatches During the CES 2020
1. Diesel Fadelite
Starting with the Diesel Fadelite, the Fadelite is a unique looking smartwatch launched by the company. It is unique because of its fading colours (hence the name Fadelite). Diesel has launched the Fadelite smartwatch in four colours – one that fades from Red to Black, one that fades from black to clear, one from Blue to clear, and a translucent one which the company has dubbed as an “iridescent” colour. The Fadelite, as claimed by the company, is designed to be born by both men and women. The smartwatch has a 43mm dial which is dubbed as a “Globe” dial by the company. The global can be manipulated by using the watch’s touchscreen display and a tile that automatically updates the current, as well as the forecasted weather conditions. Powering the Diesel Fadelite is the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset which is paired with just 512MB of RAM and 4GB of onboard storage.
The Fadelite smartwatch is swim-proof, features GPS support, NFC for Google Pay, and heart-rate tracking support. The watch runs on Wear OS, and so, it comes with support for Google Assistant. As far as the price of the Diesel Fadelite is concerned, the smartwatch will cost $275 in the US and £249 in the UK. The watch will go on sale in March 2020.
2. Skagen Falster 3
Coming up next is Skagen’s latest smartwatch dubbed the Skagen Falster 3. The watch is powered with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 processor which is paired with 1GB of RAM and a decent-enough 8GB of internal storage (which is double when compared with its predecessor, by the way). The watch comes with a speaker for taking calls and receiving audible alerts.
The Skagen Falster 3 is available in metal mesh, leather, and a silicone mesh strap options. In addition to this, the company has also partnered with KYGO, the famous Norwegian DJ, and has come up with a new all-black colour variant of the Falster 3 with a white strap loop. The special option has an X logo on the strap. While the regular Falster 3 has already started selling, the special variant will launch later in Spring 2020. The regular variant is priced at $295, while the price of the special variant will be announced later.
Speaking of the display, the Skagen Falster 3 features a 42mm case which accommodates a 1.3-inch OLED display. The smartwatch runs on Wear OS and has support for Google Assistant. Furthermore, the Falster 3 has support for GPS, NFC for mobile payments, swim-proofing (up to 30 meters), and customisable battery modes.
3. Suunto 7
Speaking of the Suunto 7 smartwatch, this is the first Wear OS smartwatch by the company and is necessarily a multisport watch which comes with GPS tracking, heart rate sensors, an altimeter, sleep tracker, more than 70 exercise modes, and offline outdoor maps, to name a few of its features.
As it is a Wear OS smartwatch, it has support for Google Assistant, Google Fit, and Google’s set of apps, as well as watch faces. As the Suunto 7 smartwatch is a fitness-centric watch, it only makes sense that it provides for good battery life. Well, if the company’s claim is anything to go by, the Suunto 7 smartwatch could provide for 48 hours of battery life on a single charge (and 12 hours in GPS/GLONASS/Galileo tracking mode). The watch is powered with the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset, something that has become a trend with almost all the recent Wear OS smartwatches out there.
The Suunto 7 smartwatch has a 50mm face (1.97-inch display), and it weighs in at 70 grams. The watch is water-resistant up to 50 meters. Speaking of the price, the Suunto 7 is available at an asking price of $499.99.
