As mentioned earlier, the Skagen Falster Gen 6 lineup is based on the Fossil Gen 6 range. As such, the smartwatches feature the same internal hardware, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100+ SoC, 8GB storage, the same sensors, and a 1.28-inch display. Unfortunately, like the Fossil Gen 6 lineup, the Skagen Falster Gen 6 range runs Wear OS 2 out of the box. However, Fossil has promised that the range will be updated to Wear OS 3 this year.

The lineup will be available in five styles in a single 42mm case size, including silver-tone, charcoal, and black case colors. The watches come with various strap options, including Skagen’s iconic stainless steel mesh strap, silicone, and leather variants. The watches are also compatible with all 20mm straps and bracelets, so you can customize your smartwatch as per your preference.
