According to multiple reports from people close to Fossil or those who have asked Fossil employees, the brand will no longer release Wear OS-powered smartwatches. This means the Fossil Gen 7 watch isn’t happening after all.
This seems to align with recent events around Fossil, or the lack thereof. The last Fossil Gen 6 watch was released two years ago and the usual summer release schedule didn’t bring a Fossil Gen 7 watch this year. Not to mention, the device is surprisingly absent from the usual rumor mill.
Last but not least, Fossil is currently doing a huge sale of its Fossil Gen 6 watch, probably to clear inventory. It’s now more than 50% off at Fossil’s official website.
Unfortunately, there’s no information on why Fossil has chosen to opt out of Wear OS and what kind of software future Fossil watches will be running.
