Fossil was interviewed by CNET and said it has no plans to update software to Google Wear OS for previously released watch models. Those looking to get a new Fossil watch with Wear OS should wait for the Fossil Gen 6 release later this year.
Greg McKelvey and Steve Prokup, Fossil’s Chief Commercial Officer and VP of Connected Devices, respectively, said in interviews that the Gen 6 smartwatch will have “all the software benefits that Google is talking about.”

The watch will receive more modern hardware that will provide better performance, longer battery life and advanced health monitoring functions. In terms of design, Fossil did not reveal key details, but said its watch will continue to feature a variety of designs, including buttons and digital crowns. The screen will remain the primary means of interacting with the watch.
The new Fossil Gen 6 watch won’t come cheap. The company positions them as a competitor to the next generation Apple Watch smartwatches.
Active noise cancellation, water resistance, 30 hours of battery life and Huawei Band 7 as a gift. Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 flagship headphones unveiled
Huawei has unveiled its new Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 fully wireless headphones for the international market. They were developed in collaboration with the French company Devialet, which specializes in the production of audio equipment.
European users will be able to buy Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 in white, silver blue and gray versions. The price will be 199 euros. Those who pre-order receive a smart bracelet Huawei Band 7. Open sales will begin on July 11.
The headphones received an active noise reduction system with an efficiency of up to 47 dB, as well as a long battery life. Four modes are provided – comfortable, general and enhanced, as well as a sound transmission mode, when the user remains in touch with the outside world.
Each of the headphones is equipped with two emitters and three microphones. One emitter will be responsible for low frequencies, and the other for medium and high frequencies. The total frequency range is 14 Hz – 48 kHz.
Unlike its predecessors, the headphones are protected from moisture (IP54) and dust. With the charging case, the battery life is up to 30 hours. One charge will give you 4 hours of noise-cancelling and 6.5 hours without noise-cancelling.
Xiaomi Mi Band 7 and Xiaomi Mi Band 7 NFC received many new features in the first firmware update
At the end of last month, Xiaomi released the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 fitness bracelet, which has already sold over a million units. And now he received the first firmware update.
Xiaomi announced the release of an update for the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 and Xiaomi Mi Band 7 NFC models. The firmware is released under the number 126.96.36.199, it includes many fixes and several new features.
With the new update, for the first time in the series data devices, Xiaomi Mi Band 7 users can finally change the vibration intensity on the fitness tracker itself. Until now, this was only possible through an app from a smartphone. It is unknown if this feature will be available for previous generation models.
In addition, the built-in watch faces have been improved. Clicking on a component will open the corresponding screen. For example, pressing the heart rate number on the watch face will open the heart rate data page. The latest new feature is the addition of fitness reminders. It is designed to encourage owners to achieve their goals.
Speaking of bugs, the new update brings fixes for occasional restart issues, built-in text alignment of watch faces in the alarm section, and brightness issues after exiting the payment page (NFC version). In addition, the update also optimizes system performance.
From 300 to 540 euros. Smart watches Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will noticeably rise in price in comparison with the Galaxy Watch 4
Whistleblower Roland Quandt has revealed the cost of Samsung’s new generation of smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro. If insider data is confirmed, then we can talk about a noticeable rise in price of new products relative to their predecessors: and this rise in price is the greater, the better the configuration.
Galaxy Watch 5 with a 40 mm screen will cost 300 and 350 euros for the version with Bluetooth and LTE, respectively. This watch will be offered in pink, gray and silver colors. For the Galaxy Watch 5 with a 44mm screen, you will have to pay 350 euros (Bluetooth) and 400 euros (LTE). This watch will be available in blue, gray and silver. The only format reserved for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is 45mm. Prices – 490 and 540 euros (respectively, the Bluetooth version and the version with LTE support).
For comparison, the cost of the Galaxy Watch 4 40 mm format is 270 (Bluetooth) and 320 (LTE) euros, the cost of the Galaxy Watch 4 44 mm format is 300 and 350 euros. For the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (they will be replaced by the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro) they ask for 400 and 460 euros. Thus, the maximum difference in the price of top models will be 90 euros, and this is a lot.
Roland Quandt is a well-known informant. In 2020, he completely declassified the GoPro 9 Black action camera before its announcement and named the exact cost, and in 2021 he completely declassified the GoPro 10 Black (and also with the price).
