    Okay, I think this is it... the big push to make Wear OS the Windows of smartwatches. Available online tomorrow and in stores soon thereafter, Fossil's new Sport not only includes the new Snapdragon 3100 chip, but (almost) every other Wear OS feature that a user could want.

    First, there will be two case sizes, 41 and 43 mm, for male and female wrists. Second, there will be no less than six available colours: black, blush, grey, light blue, neon and red, plus an additional 28 options for bands and bracelets—plus your favourite third party quick-release strap from Amazon, your local watch repair shop, etc. Third, a heart rate sensor. Fourth, NFC for Google Pay. Fifth, a rotating crown to scroll through installed apps and notifications. Six, two additional customizable buttons to quick-launch your favourite apps. And seventh, the aforementioned Snapdragon 3100 chip, which should significantly improve both performance and battery life over past Wear OS releases.

    The only other feature a smartwatch user could ask for would be a trans-reflective display for readability in bright sunlight. But for $255 USD / $335 CAD you still get quite a lot!

    Here's an unboxing and tour of the Fossil Sport from Droid Life:
