As is the case every year, Razer was busy at CES 2022. One surprising announcement sees the company teaming up with Fossil to release a gaming smartwatch. Even more surprising is the limited nature of the watch, as the companies are only making 1,337 of them.
Razer and Fossil decided to make this watch a limited edition model and it choose the most gamer-centric number in 1,337 (it mean leet in leetspeak). This watch could definitely end up being a sought-after collectible when it launches on January 10, 2022, for $329.
“We are always on the lookout for opportunities to compliment gamers’ lifestyles and to bring them products that not only look good but bring value to their lives as well. This is why we kept the gamers’ well-being at the heart of the Razer X Fossil Gen 6. Leveraging Fossil’s innovative technology and Razer’s iconic design aesthetic, this smartwatch will be the perfect accessory to keep you ahead of the game,” said Addie Tan, Associate Director, Business Development at Razer.
As far as the watch itself, it’s a modified version of the Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch. It comes with three unique Razer watch faces, four customizable Razer Chroma RGB effects, and two watch straps that are designed to give it the gaming look and feel. The rest appears to be exactly the same as a regular Fossil Gen 6.
The Fossil Gen 6 is a solid watch outside of the Razer stuff. It comes with a 1.28” touchscreen digital display, a Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor, support for Wear OS 3 when it drops later in 2022, and all kinds of sensors including an Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, and Altimeter.
