Fossil Wear OS 3 smartwatches get Google Assistant after months of delay

A significant number of smartwatch users were left without access to Google Assistant when the Wear OS 3 update was rolled out, limiting support to only Pixel Watch and newer Samsung Galaxy Watches. However, Fossil is stepping in to address this issue by announcing an update that brings back Google Assistant to its Gen 6 watches running Wear OS 3. This update not only applies to Fossil’s own models but also extends to Diesel, Michael Kors, and Skagen watches under the Fossil brand. It’s important to note that the paired phone must be running standard Android with Google apps, as Android Go and certain Chinese phones are not compatible.
