Fossil's stylish Skagen smartwatch brand gets the Gen 6 treatment

One size fits all.

What you need to know

  • Fossil introduces the Skagen Falster Gen 6 smartwatch.
  • The new smartwatch is powered by the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ chipset and will be upgradable to Wear OS 3.
  • Skagen Falster Gen 6 retails for $295 and comes only in a 42mm case size.

Fossil knows its design language isn't for everyone, which is why the company is finally introducing its latest smartwatch under the Skagen brand. The new Skagen Falster Gen 6 is basically a Fossil Gen 6 with a minimal design that we know and love.

On the inside, you'll find there's nothing that differentiates the new Skagen Falster Gen 6 with the latest Fossil or Michael Kors watches. It's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 4100+ chipset, which should make Wear OS 2 much more manageable. It packs 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM, the same upgraded health sensor for monitoring your vitals, and the same impressive fast charging capabilities to get you to 80% in just over 30 minutes.

The differences are all in the aesthetic, which is largely identical to Skagen's previous model with a minimal, Scandinavian-inspired design. It has a 42mm stainless steel case that houses the 1.28-inch OLED display. Fossil says that it's offering one size with its various colorways as a one-size-fits-all deal so that stylings aren't differentiated for men or women.

This could potentially appeal to women that weren't too fond of Fossil's smaller yet overly flashy 42mm Gen 6 styles. The Skagen Falster Gen 6 only comes in silver-tone, charcoal, and black case colors and is compatible with 20mm watchbands.

Like the Fossil Gen 6 and some of the best Wear OS watches, Skagen Falster Gen 6 will be upgraded to Wear OS 3 later this year, "alongside other updates that will continue to improve the overall user experience." Fossil has previously teased the availability of an Alexa tile and says that it's still "coming soon."

The Skagen Falster Gen 6 retails for $295 and is available starting today.

Minimalism at its best

The Skagen Falster Gen 6 takes the best of the Fossil Gen 6 and puts it in a stylish 42mm chassis. Not only does it look great, but it runs smoothly thanks to the Snapdragon Wear 4100+, and it will only get better with Wear OS 3 later this year.

Apple Has 'Very Serious' DMA Issues, EU to Enforce Rules 'Soon'

Apple is facing a "number" of "very serious" issues with its Digital Markets Act compliance in Europe, EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in an interview with CNBC . The European Commission opened an investigation into Apple in March to determine if Apple's EU app marketplace changes were complying with DMA regulations. The DMA requires Apple to provide developers with an option to distribute apps outside of the App Store and without ‌App Store‌'s fees. Apple implemented support for app marketplaces with iOS 17.4, but it charges an 0.50 euro Core Technology Fee for each download after the initial 1 million annual installs. Vestager does not believe that Apple's changes meet the requirements of the DMA. "We have a number of Apple issues; I find them very serious," she said. "I was very surprised that we would have such suspicions of Apple being non-compliant." She went on to say that this implementation "

U.S. Government Sues Adobe for Hidden Termination Fees When Canceling Subscription

The United States Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission today levied a lawsuit against Adobe [ PDF ] for imposing a hidden termination fee on subscribers who want to cancel their Adobe plans. Adobe is accused of forcing subscribers to "navigate a complex and challenging cancellation process designed to deter them from cancelling subscriptions they no longer wanted." Adobe offers its Creative Cloud products on a subscription basis, with fees that are paid monthly. A monthly payment suggests that it's possible to cancel anytime, but that's not how Adobe works because most customers are actually locked into a hidden annual agreement. Customers who sign up for a free trial and are then charged and signed up to the default Creative Cloud plan, which is actually an annual contract. Canceling the annual contract requires customers to pay a lump sum of 50 percent of the "remaining contractual obligation" to cancel, despite the fact that servic
