If you’re in the market for a Wear OS 3 smartwatch, a new option is right around the corner. Fossil Group has just announced the latest Diesel smartwatch, the Diesel Griffed Gen 6, which launches soon for $350.
In any case, the Diesel Griffed Gen 6 is certainly quite the upgrade over the Axial it technically replaces.
The Griffed is based on Fossil’s Gen 6 platform which includes a Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. It also introduced a revamped faster charging method that Diesel says will charge 80% in just 30 minutes.
On the hardware side, Diesel hasn’t been particularly specific ahead of launch, but the watch certainly appears to be on the larger side. It also supports Bluetooth 5 LE, Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC for Google Wallet. The sensors can be used for tracking workouts, heart rate zones, and SpO2 levels.
The Diesel Griffed will be available on December 1 for $350 in silver/black and gunmetal/black variants with metal, leather, and Diesel-branded nylon/silicone band options.
