Diesel’s new Fadelite smartwatch runs Wear OS and has a translucent band

Fossil’s sub-brands have been busy working on new Wear OS watches. Last week, we saw Skagen’s new Falster 3, and now today at CES 2020, Diesel announced the Fadelite. These watches feature stylish bands and vivid color options along with some respectable specifications for Wear OS.

The Fadelite (pronounced fade-lite) comes in one size meant for men and women. There are four color options and they all feature a fading effect: red to black, black to clear, blue to clear, and clear “iridescent.” The clear design is by far the most interesting and something we haven’t seen much with Wear OS watches. The size of the case is 43mm and there is one single “globe” button on the side that acts as a dial.

Thankfully, Diesel has equipped the Fadelite with the Snapdragon 3100 SoC, but it only has 512MB of RAM (according to 9to5Google). The watch is also “swim-proof” and has NFC, GPS, heart-rate tracking, and all the Google Assistant features you’d expect. Besides the fading colors, there’s not a lot that wows us about the Fadelite. It seems like your typical Wear OS device with a little extra pizazz. The Fadelite will be available in the four flashy colors in March for $275.
