Fossil: Different battery modes for other smartwatches

With the fifth generation of its own smartwatches, Fossil introduced new battery modes. These are now to be used on more models.

Within the CES 2020 learned Android Authority from Fossil that the battery modes that one with the The Carlyle HR and other fifth generation watches (we saw some of them on the IFA 2019) introduced other watches with a Snapdragon Wear 3100 come. One of these modes, for example, only shows the current time, which increases the battery life extremely. Another, in turn, allows certain sensors to be activated and deactivated at will. If you have a watch with the processor mentioned above, you can find the update from today in the settings System, Über and software updates.

Unfortunately, smartwatches with Wear OS have had the problem for a long time that the runtime is not outstanding. So I think it's good that Fossil wants to get rid of that.
