Google Wear smartwatches have been a little quiet lately — there have been few splashy new watch releases and not a lot of excitement on the OS front. But even so, one of the cooler Google Wear options is the Fossil Sport, which combines a snazzy visual design with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 3100 chipset, integrated GPS and NFC, a full-time heart-rate monitor, and water resistance to 5 atmospheres. It also is among the lightest Google Wear watches ever to sit on a wrist. In other words, if I was going to exchange my Apple Watch Series 5 for an Android smartwatch, this one would be near the top of the list. And while it usually sells for $275, you can now get the Fossil Sport smartwatch for $99.

At the Fossil site, there are 14 colors to choose from, though a few are already sold out (and refreshing the page to check each color is an infuriatingly slow process).
