The Danish brand SKAGEN presents its latest generation of connected watches, with the very fast Falster Gen 6 headlining.
If CES 2022 is always the opportunity to present particularly innovative objects, a simple makeover and an update of existing ranges are always good to take. SKAGEN, specialized in the design of connected objects, today presents its new ultra-fast watch, the Falster Gen 6. This one is aimed at all types of consumers because of its specifications worthy of a sports watch, and its elegant design for everyday life.
The first thing to benefit from improvements is of course the watch screen. This consists of a 1.28-inch round AMOLED panel, encased in a stainless steel case. It is tactile and additionally contains three buttons on the edge of the case. If this is rather standard, the brand claims that the always-on function has been improved to offer more brightness.
Very promising specs
Everything is powered by a Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor, a chip that promises you excellent performance on a daily basis, but also in the test. The interface is based on the Wear OS software from Google, which the brand uses for Samsung, Ticwatch or Fossil connected watches. Note that the Wear OS 3 update will be compatible with the device. The watch has 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage and a battery life ranging from 24 hours to several days, depending on how you use it.
For the more athletic among you will appreciate the myriad of sensors that will allow them an optimal follow-up. We note for example the presence of PPG heart rate sensors, SpO2, a gyroscope, a compass, or even an infrared off-body sensor and an altimeter. Everything is certified waterproof up to 3 ATM.
A watch (not) like the others
Apart from all this, you can obviously do everything you expect from a lambda connected watch, such as receive notifications, listen to music, pay without contact or have sports tracking thanks to some native applications. For this, it has a microphone, a speaker and a vibration function, as well as Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, among others.
In terms of design, SKAGEN is extremely sober and elegant with interchangeable straps in neutral tones and quality materials. The Falster Gen 6 watch will be available for purchase during the month of January and is now already displayed at the price of 299 €.
