Razer X Fossil Gen 6: a gaming watch with fitness and health features
Regarding the specifications, the Razer X Fossil Gen 6, includes a Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor, one of the most powerful SoCs for smart watches. It also comes with important functions focused on health and sports. Among them, the possibility of measuring the heart rate, the oxygen in bloode (spO2) or perform a sleep tracking.

The smartwatch will be available in limited units, with only 1,337 models for sale at a price of $ 329. It can be purchased both on the Razer online portal and on the Fossil website.
