It just released the sixth generation of its smartwatches with OLED screens, and it has now progressed to the hybrid smartwatches series.

The Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid, according to the GSMArena page, is aimed at consumers who love classic wristwatches with some smart model functions.

The Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid borrows design features from the recently released Fossil Gen 6 watch while also somewhat improving the hardware.

Machine and Stella will be the two design elements available. The first has a 45-millimeter case with a textured frame and is available in black, smoke, and silver. Stella has a 40.5 mm casing in more feminine colors including rose gold, silver, and two others.

Both models include replaceable straps (18 and 24 millimeters) made of various materials, such as metal, traditional leather, or silicone straps.

However, it is not only the look that distinguishes this watch. They mix a traditional hand mechanism with a low-cost E-ink display that displays typical smart functionalities.

Sleep and step tracking, notifications, customizable dials, continuous heart rate monitoring, and training are all supported. The monitoring of blood oxygenation is innovative (SpO2).

Another unique feature is the built-in microphone, which works with Amazon's speech assistant Alexa. Bluetooth is used to connect the watch to the smartphone. The watch's cheap E-ink display ensures up to two weeks of durability on a single charge.

Fossil has also enhanced its app for Android and iOS, adding more personalization choices and a more complete dashboard with fitness data.

The new app will also be compatible with previous Fossil Hybrid smartwatches. The watch will be available on the official store on June 27 for 219 dollars or 239 dollars, depending on the variant.
