• Fifth Time’s the Charm? New Smartwatches from Fossil



    Fossil has announced the first of their fifth-generation Wear OS-powered smartwatches, The Carlyle and Julianna HR (the former is shown above). Here's a rundown of what's new, courtesy of the Wear OS subreddit:

    New design;
    1 GB RAM, 8 GB storage (vs. 0.5 GB / 4 GB on Fossil Sport, Q Gen 4);
    Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor (vs. 2100 in Q Gen 4);
    Speaker for Google Assistant, calls, music;
    Multiple battery-saving modes (coming to older Fossil watches this fall);
    iPhone users can take calls on the watch, also coming in fall update.

    And here's a quick video tour with Michael Fisher:



    If, like me, you find the styling of the Carlyle to be a bit... forgettable, fear not—this is but a first volley in the torrent of Fossil-branded devices to follow.

    No, they don't have ALL the bands active on a carrier, that would be useless. iPhones download the carrier settings file (*.ipcc) using the phone data... it's a different way to do provisioning.
