Fossil to Add LTE in Its Next-Gen Smartwatch

Fossil has delivered some of the finest smartwatches that ensure hassle-free performance. Fossil seems like it’s in a quest to enhance this performance by integrating LTE as cellular connectivity. Almost a year has passed, when Fossil launched its fifth generation smartwatch. And, with its sixth generation, Fossil will launch an upgraded version that will have LTE. Though it is an initial phase to estimate and forecast the features of this new smartwatch, the FCC website has provided sufficient information on the same.

Latest Development

The news broke out with the FCC filing, where a model named C1NF1 under the flagship of Fossil has emerged. According to this Fossil’s filing to FCC, the new Fossil smartwatch (under the C1NF1 model) supports LTE 2,4, 12, and 13 bands. This smartwatch will also carry connectivity features, including Bluetooth, NFC, and Wi-Fi. In the current scenario, there is no information on battery capacity. But, as per the details available, the new smartwatch is tested with an APP00310 battery. This battery has a configuration of 2.85Vdc and a 0.4Ah power rating.

What does it mean by adding LTE?

The addition of LTE decreases the user’s reliance on the smartphone. As a result, it enhances the user’s mobility and lets the user move with a smartwatch. Because LTE supports packet switching, it allows the exchange of voice and data. Hence, the user will be able to take calls and respond to text messages. LTE ensures faster data transmissions of large volumes of data. Therefore, a user can listen to music. LTE optimizes network usage and battery consumption. These optimizations will be beneficial for the new Fossil smartwatch.


One of the biggest expectations lying with Fossil’s next-gen device is that it will upgrade its processor. Till Gen-5, Fossil has integrated Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100. But now Qualcomm has an upgraded variant – Snapdragon Wear 4100. Hence, many users will speculate that this new processor from Qualcomm will become the core equipment in the next Fossil smartwatch. The new Qualcomm smartwatch processor has a 25% better battery life and faster LPDDR3 memory than its last predecessor and is based-on 12 nm technology. Also, the processor shows 85% better performance. The spill-over effect will come to the new smartwatch too. Apart from this, one can expect all the equipment present in the last version of the Fossil smartwatch can be there in the new one. The sensor instruments that will be present in the next-gen Fossil watch are:

  • Accelerometer
  • Altimeter
  • Ambient light sensor
  • Gyroscope
  • GPS


Integrating LTE technology will deliver a better smartwatch that reduces smartphone-reliability and enhances cellular connectivity. Embedding the latest Qualcomm processor for wearable electronics devices will have a positive impact. It will enhance the battery performance and faster operation of the smartwatch. Apart from this, speculations of holding the same kind of sensors will be intact in this new smartwatch. However, one cannot predict the release of Fossil’s next-gen smartwatch as of now. It is because it has crossed the development stage and is waiting for the filing clearance from FCC. Hence, many undiscovered tenets of the smartwatch are still undercover and will open once the smartphone is available in the market. Therefore, wait for the official launch and unveil the remaining hidden treasure of the new Fossil smartwatch.
