Today’s update is timely, fulfilling Fossil’s pledge that Gen 6 watches will transition to Wear OS 3. Thanks to aspects of Google’s Material You design, the display of the wearable device is now more readable.

When the top button is pressed and held, a list of recently used applications is displayed, and the voice assistant is activated. Additionally, the Quick Settings Shade has been enhanced with additional settings, a fresh appearance, and a toggle between the Daily and Extended battery modes.

The Fossil app already existed, but for some reason the company has only permitted Gen 6 devices to connect with the Wear OS app. Now that this is no longer the case, all customizations may be made within the native application, and support for the Google app has not been altered; the user can choose which app should be the default.
