The Skagen Falster Gen 6 smartwatch has been launched in India carrying a steep price tag, and an impressive array of features. The Skagen Falster 6 series is based on the Gen 6 smartwatches from Fossil. However, the Fossil Gen 6 adopts a slightly different approach as far as the design is concerned.

These include black case, charcoal, and silver-tone color options. Furthermore, the straps use high-quality stainless steel mesh, leather, and silicone.
