Razer gets its own limited-edition Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch for gamers

Complete with a Chroma watch face.

What you need to know

  • Fossil introduces a limited-edition Razer variant of its Gen 6 smartwatch.
  • The watch features engraved bands and exclusive Razer watch faces.
  • The Razer X Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatch launches this month for $329.
  • Only 1,337 units will be available for purchase.

Fossil is stepping out of its comfort zone to launch a new smartwatch in partnership with Razer. The new Razer X Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatch takes the best of the Fossil Gen 6 and adds some additional Razer flair that the companies hope will appeal to gamers and fans of Wear OS.

Off the bat, you won't find this smartwatch decked out in RGB Chroma lighting as one would hope. Instead, the Razer X Fossil Gen 6 features exclusive Razer watch faces, from a standard Analog with Razer branding to a Text watch face that spells out the current time.

The watch also has a Chroma watch face, which displays a colorful ring around the edge of the display. This watch face can be customized with four Razer Chroma RGB effects, whether you want a single color to match your gaming setup on some of the best Razer keyboards, or you prefer a myriad of hues.

The watch also comes with two custom-designed straps in Razer's signature black and bright green colors.

Beyond that, the watch is more or less the same Gen 6 smartwatch. It features the same 44mm case size with a 1.28-inch OLED display, 8GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, fast-charging capabilities, and Wear OS 2, all powered by the Snapdragon Wear 4100+. Fortunately, it will be among the best Wear OS watches to receive Wear OS 3 when it hits current devices sometime this year.

As far as partnerships go, it's a decent first start for Fossil, although we would like to see more opportunities come out of this and future collaborations, something that the company hopes to explore as well.

For now, interested parties will have to act fast if they want to grab one of these limited-edition smartwatches. Fossil says it's only making 1,337 units that will go on sale on January 10 for $329 at Fossil and Gamestop online stores.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy
