The Falster 3 from Skagen is one of the newest Wear OS smartwatches powered by the Snapdragon 3100 chip. It joins the likes of Suunto 7, Fossil Gen 5 and Xiaomi Mi Watch which are all powered by same 3100 chip. The Falster 3 succeeds the Falster 2 and it comes with newer features such as higher 1GB RAM, 8GB onboard storage, loudspeaker and battery saver mode feature thanks to the 3100 chip. These are all significant upgrades the Falster 2 lacks.

Skagen Falster 3 Features

  • Outstanding Design
  • The Falster 3 has already been tagged the most beautiful Wear OS smartwatch by some reviewers, I honestly think they are not far from the truth. It’s very slim and the fine-textured design leaves it with a fascinating appearance. It’s just 11mm thick compared to the Watch 5 10.7mm and its compact at 42mm. The case is made of stainless steel and the 22mm straps are available in stainless steel and leather mesh.

    The 1.3 inch AMOLED display is very colorful and fascinating to watch with touch support and three physical buttons by the sides to aid navigation. Corning Gorilla Glass (not sure of the exact version) protects the screen against accidental falls. The Falster 3 is available in various colors; blue mesh straps/black case, gold-tone mesh and two-tone leather.

    Falster 3 is rated 3ATM which means water resistance up to 30 meters. You can wear this device to the pool, but not recommended to wear to deeper water such as the ocean.

  • Battery Life
  • One of the benefits of the Snapdragon 3100 chip is the battery manager features that have proven to significantly elongate the battery life of Wear OS smartwatches just as seen with the Fossil Gen 5 which has over a day battery life with battery saver activated.

    Falster 3 has been tested to last a day or more with mixed usage, and with battery saver activated, you should expect a longer battery life over a day.

  • Activity/Fitness Tracking
  • The Falster 3 is equipped to track your active life with altimeter, accelerometer, gyroscope, heart rate sensor and inbuilt GPS all onboard. This enables it to track your steps, distance, sleep, heart rate, calories, and outdoor activities.

    Google Fit is your fitness companion on this watch and there are other alternatives you can download from the Play Store to track your activities.

  • Media/Storage
  • One of the new additions to Falster 3 that makes it a more comprehensive and better smartwatch than its predecessor is the increased storage capacity of 8GB which is twice that of the Falster 2, this allows you to take more of your favorite tracks along with you. The 1GB RAM is also a significant boost which in addition to the 3100 chip sees this watch respond and perform faster.

    Moreover, Falster 3 comes with the loudspeaker which is not found in Falster 2, this addition to microphone enables you to make and receive calls from this watch via Bluetooth calling. You can access voice command features via Google Assistant to perform a slew of tasks that can improve your productive life.

  • Notifications

The Falster 3 will keep you connected to all that matters to you. It’s compatible with both android and iOS devices, and there’s Wi-Fi too. NFC is also on board that enables Google Pay which allows you to make payment with your card directly from this watch.

Pros

  • Stylish, sleek and classy design.
  • Increased 8GB storage.
  • Has microphone and loudspeaker.

Cons

  • Battery life isn’t so impressive.
