The most significant addition to Fossil’s new hybrid smartwatch is the built-in Alexa compatibility. This feature launched this year on the Fossil Gen 6 smartwatches running Wear OS and should definitely give other hybrid smartwatches a run for their money. Android and iOS users can interact with Alexa with their voice using the watch’s built-in microphone and view the response on the e-ink display.
