When you have a vast user base, Instead of sticking with the regular products, you can try other things that work or not. Razer is a game products related company, and they try their best to provide better products often. They launched Gaming Android Phone, Earbuds, and other few products. With the collaboration between Fossil and Razer, they will release Razer X Fossil Smart Watch based on the Fossil Gen 6. Fossil Gen 6 is not making that many sales compared with the previous versions. When any product sales go down, They release limited edition or new colors to boost the sales. Samsung always did the same with their “S” and “Note” series. Other than some custom UI and Strap, It is the same Fossil Gen 6. They recently announced the collaboration. But, Gamestop accidentally listed the whole product page before the release and removed it.
Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatch
Fossil Gen 6 comes with lower battery life and outdated software. It remained faithful to Fossil’s tradition of creating traditional-looking smartwatches. With a circular design, traditional-looking analog-looking watch faces, and the option of a stainless steel bracelet which is suitable for a formal occasion. Its predecessor, the Fossil Gen 6, landed a couple of months ago and made numerous promises; however, it was being slapped with a more expensive cost than Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. What if your preferences diverge in a distinct direction? A retailer listing that seems a bit premature offers us a first glimpse at the fresh Fossil Gen 6, courtesy of a Razer collaboration.
Razer x Fossil collaboration
Fossil has already posted several teasers via the internet, announcing its partnership with Razer. It appears GameStop may have misinterpreted the timings here since it unveiled the brand new smartwatch (now deleted) and some band upgrades, but a bit too early. Luckily, Mishaal Rahman noticed the news on Twitter before when GameStop was able to take the website down.
