Fossil has announced a new lineup of hybrid smartwatches called Hybrid HR.
Fossil has announced the Fossil Sport Smartwatch, which is the company’s first watch running Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor and Wear OS.
Skagen has announced a new version of their Wear OS smartwatch with the Falster 2.
Smartwatches haven’t been around for that long, most of the one you see on the market have touchscreen displays like on the Asus ZenWatch 3 or Apple Watch but some do not, such as Pebble’s lineup of smartwatches.
But Skagen (along with other brands in the Fossil group), a brand that focuses on Danish design is looking to change that with the introduction of something called a hybrid smartwatch. It combines the connectivity and notification alerts of a traditional touchscreen smartwatch with the stylings of a traditional watch.
I’ve been using the Skagen Hagen Connected Hybrid Smartwatch for a few weeks now and I wouldn’t say the Skagen offers the best smartwatch experience but it’s definitely different and the most different from other traditional smartwatches.
