When Google officially debuted Android Wear to the world back in March 2014, Fossil was named as one of the wearable initiative’s partners. However, it’s taken a bit of time for the company known for its watches (and much more now) to show off its first attempt at an Android Wear-based smartwatch.
Now the time has come, and Fossil has officially shown off its first Android Wear smartwatch at this year’s Intel Developers Conference. Unfortunately, that’s about all that Fossil did. The company wasn’t ready to talk about what the smartwatch will feature, other than Android Wear, or even what powers the device under that round hood.
The unnamed smartwatch features a round face much like Motorola’s Moto 360, and even features the “flat tire” at the bottom of the screen. Indeed, the new watch looks much like Motorola’s first attempt, for better or worse.
As for when the device will see the light of day, Fossil wasn’t ready to talk about that, either. How much it will cost, too, is unknown at this point.
What do you think of the Fossil smartwatch?
