Fossil Group launches designer watches that are noteworthy. Fossil watches never fail to impress. And you must take watches of a company seriously when it has helped the company turn around. The sales have been impressive since 2016. If you thought 2018 was impressive, wait till 2019. The company has collaborated with BMW for a BMW smartwatch.
From android watches to hybrid watches, the company has experimented with all types of smartwatches. They have added new smartwatch options for buyers such as Kate Spade, Tory Burch and DKNY.
The company introduced a better mix of both men’s and women’s smartwatches that offer healthy selection. But if you are wondering which are the best of all the options, we have listed the watches that stand out in the list below.
Skagen Falster 2
Skagen Falster came in 2018 with its full-screen smartwatch. Skagen dove deeper into the world of smartwatches running on Wear OS and loaded with features. The company decided to add a new member to the fossil watch family by rolling out Falster 2 a few months later.
The Falster 2 comes with a heart rate monitor, GPS and NFC. This fossil watch comes with the complete fitness tracker. Even though we keep wondering how they put all the features within a 40mm smartwatch, we are happy they did.
The design is simple along with special faces to keep things minimalistic. Skagen software is simple and high performing.
Priced at Rs.19000 for the matte black model, the prices of a Skagen Falster can move up to Rs.21000 approx for luxe materials.
