Two brand-new timepieces from the Fossil Group have been approved by the FCC

In June, Fossil submitted five new smartwatches for certification with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The company has since added two more model numbers to the register of certified products.

 The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent body that was established by the federal government of the United States to oversee interstate communications that take place by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable. When a smartwatch is seen for the first time in its final form, it is usually not long before it is shown to the public.

Yesterday, on August 12th, Fossil Group devices with the monikers “DW9K1” and “DW9P1” were added. Most of the time, the information on the label is enough to figure out the name of the sub-brand.

Following the model number is a letter, then either a 1 or a 2, depending on the variant. Fossil and diesel fuel are represented by the letters F and D, respectively. E-Emporio Armani, M-Michael Kors, K-Kate Spade, S-Skagen, T-Tory Burch, etc. The following number displays how many different types of gadgets fall into that particular range.

It should come as no surprise that DW9K1 is an abbreviation for Kate Spade. Especially considering that the Kate Spade New York Scallop was given the designation DW7K1 by the company. This indicates that the smarts of Generation 5 are likely to be coming at it soon. This features a speaker that is already embedded into the device; more storage capacity; a longer battery life achieved via the use of intelligent battery modes; and the Snapdragon 3100 processor.

Because there aren’t any clear choices for the letter “P,” the other gadget is a little bit of a mystery. That is, with the exception of Puma! A global license cooperation deal was established between the two companies in the previous year. It was announced at the time that a variety of PUMA-branded sports watches and other wearables were scheduled to be released in 2019. It is possible that the first Wear OS watch, which will result from this relationship, may soon be available for purchase.

The FCC listing explains how to access the identifying information of the regulatory agency on the timepieces. This shows that the process is the same as it was with the previous version of Wear OS, which runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and Android 9 Pie.

In June, five further Fossil Group watches were successful in obtaining FCC certification. This consists of four watches: one from Fossil (DW10F1), one from Diesel (DW10D1), and one from Emporio Armani. Both of the Michael Kors watches have the DW10M1 and DW10M2 designations (DW10E1).

The fifth generation Carlyle HR and the more feminine Juliana HR smartwatches were both introduced by Fossil just the week before. Every one of these is offered in a diverse assortment of possible incarnations.

This is certainly only the beginning, and there are many other tools available as well. The products developed by Fossil Group are expected to arrive soon. A few of these are likely to be announced in the following weeks, in advance of IFA 2019.
