Popular fashion brand Diesel has launched a spunky looking Wear OS powered smartwatch called the Full Guard 2.5 in India today. The new accessory from Diesel comes with a bold look that complements the design language of the rest of its portfolio of fashion products.
The highlight of the new Diesel Full Guard 2.5 is its sporty design and a fully featured specs sheet - it comes with all the niceties like a heart rate sensor, NFC payments support, GPS and water resistance up to 30 meters. Diesel has managed to make the watch look cool while still making it rugged enough to use in difficult conditions. The smartwatch comes in four variants - a classic matte case with a black leather strap, a gunmetal steel case on a brown leather strap, a matte black steel case on a black silicone strap and an all-over gunmetal stainless steel case on a three-link bracelet.
The Diesel Full Guard 2.5 runs on Google's Wear OS and as such, it is compatible with all Android smartphones running on Android 4.4 KitKat and above (except Go edition phones), as well as iPhones running on iOS 9.3 or above. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 platform, the watch supports features like smartphone notifications, rapid charging, music control and customizable watch faces.
Other features of the Full Guard 2.5 include NFC payments, heart rate tracking, distance tracking thanks to GPS and Google Assistant support. The smartwatch also comes with a cool feature called Weather Filters that displays dial effects based on the weather conditions.
The Full Guard 2.5 has been priced at ₹24,495 and will be available in India by the end of November 2018.
