SKAGEN is thrilled to unveil the newest addition to its most popular smartwatch portfolio – the Falster 3. In addition to this exciting technology launch, SKAGEN announces its partnership with X by KYGO – a premium audio accessories and lifestyle brand by award-winning Norwegian DJ, songwriter and producer, Kygo.

The Falster 3 Smartwatch boasts an interactive, swimproof touchscreen and a range of smart features powered with Wear OS by Google™ including: heart-rate tracking, Google Assistant, smartphone notifications, activity tracking, Google Pay, GPS and more. Choose from time- or function-based displays for easy access to your favorite features, and add your favorite third-party apps from the Google Play store. A battery-efficient dial design provides up to 24 hours of use on a single charge, and the interchangeable heavy gauge stainless steel-mesh strap allows you to customize your look. Each watch comes with a magnetic charger.

Owing to its sleek design and updated hardware, the next generation smartwatch from SKAGEN is built to offer the best of available technology without sacrificing the pared-down, life-simplifying ethos of the original. The Falster 3 will sport four styles inclusive of a limited edition style designed in partnership with X by KYGO brand.

Available at all leading retail channels, this watch retails for INR 21,995.

The most notable evolution is in the Falster 3’s tech capabilities. The expanded feature line-up includes:

New Speaker

With the addition of Speaker, users have the ability to take calls on their smartwatch. In the past, this was a capability that only Android phone users have enjoyed—until now. Fossil Group has developed a proprietary app allowing iPhone users to answer tethered calls—making this one of the first Wear OS by Google devices with this capability.

Thanks to the inclusion of a swimproof speaker, in addition to the existing microphone, users can enjoy audible functionality, and hear responses from the Google Assistant—when you ask a question or tell it to perform an action, you can hear the Google Assistant speak back to you.

Functions include:

⋅     Sound alerts for notifications, alarms, timers, etc.

⋅     Hear responses from the Google Assistant

⋅     Google Translate speak out translation

⋅     Play third party music direct from watch

⋅     Answer tethered calls directly from watch

 

Extended Battery Mode

Fossil Group has developed a proprietary smartwatch experience that offers four battery life presets, putting the user in control and allowing for extended battery life.

This new experience offers an ‘Extended Battery Mode’ where users can extend to multiple days on a single charge while still enjoying essential features like notifications and heart rate. ‘Daily Mode’ allows users to experience most features enabled, such as always-on screen. ‘Custom Mode’ allows users to easily manage battery optimization settings themselves, all in one place, where ‘Time-Only Mode’ gives users additional hours when the watch has a low battery or if they choose to use the smartwatch to only tell time. From the home screen on your watch, swipe down from the top and tap the battery icon to choose the mode that’s right for you.

Tiles

Tiles provide a quick way to view information at a glance and perform actions. With a swipe left, Tiles adds easy access to quick actions and information that previously were hidden in the app menu. You can check your progress towards your fitness goals, start a workout, know where you need to be next, plan ahead with the latest forecast, check your heart rate, follow the latest breaking headlines, and even quickly set a timer.

Additionally, by doubling the total storage to 8GB, including 1GB RAM, users will have even more space to download apps and media, as well as see an overall performance boost. The integrated sensors have also been given an upgrade to help improve fidelity and optimize power consumption. Features familiar from previous generations include heart rate tracking, untethered GPS, NFC for Google Pay™, and Rapid Charging. As with our existing lineup, Falster 3 will come with a series of auto-installed apps: most popular global audio streaming subscription, Spotify, peace of mind and safety app, Noonlight.

Cardiogram, a digital companion for your heart health, is the latest app that SKAGEN will auto-install. Your heart beats over 102,000 times per day, and Cardiogram tells you what that data means. Cardiogram visualizes heart rate data into interactive charts that can be tagged with activities from your day, helping you identify what could contribute to spikes and dips in your heart rate. For example, users can monitor how your heart rate changes during a stressful meeting, exercise, or during sleep. Users can also track how health metrics compared to millions of other Cardiogram users. If you choose to upgrade to Cardiogram Premium, you can easily share your data with doctors or family and receive continuous monitoring for signs of undiagnosed diabetes, sleep apnea, hypertension, and atrial fibrillation. If Cardiogram thinks you might be at-risk of one of these conditions, you’ll be offered an FDA-cleared test to confirm it. Note: monitoring for undiagnosed conditions is only available in the United States.
