The Twitter account of Fossil mentions, that the new Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch will receive Wear OS 3 at this month’s end. They have not revealed any exact date but speculated it for June end or early July. Previously, the same team has mentioned the major Wear OS 3 update for Gen 6 will release in the second half. Again it has been claimed that the rollout will begin as per promised. Further, it mentions Fossil Gen 5 will also have the same update later this year.
For Gen 5, the update may release in mid-summer or at the end of summer. We are not sure about the Fossil Gen smartwatch, but we hope Fossil should give it more power and a polished look.
It is almost one year since Wear OS 3 firmware update for Galaxy Watch 4 series. Since then, it is the only device to enjoy all the goodies and exclusive services of Google’s software. The Samsung smartwatches are now having Wear OS 3.5 beta update.
Further, many app developers have exclusively launched their apps for Wear OS 3. It is including Strava which has terminated support for Wear OS 2 version. It is good if both Fossil & Google work faster on their software updates.
Along with Fossil watches, Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 & Pro 3 Ultra will receive Wear OS 3 version later this year. With the next Galaxy Watch 5, Samsung will introduce a new software version or the stable version of the current One UI 4.5 beta version. Samsung may announce it as a Wear OS 4.0 with forward-looking features.
