Fossil today announced a new Skagen smartwatch that brings upgraded hardware to a gorgeous watch case.

The Skagen Falster 3 includes a Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor and 1GB of RAM, making for snappy performance. There’s also a speaker built-in allowing Assistant to talk back to you, as well Fossil’s new battery saving technology.

The watch features NFC for Google Pay on your wrist, GPS, heart rate tracking and fast charging. And all of this is in an attractive, water resistant 42mm case. It’s about a millimeter thicker than its previous incarnation, but for all the extra features you get, it’s worth it.

In addition to the standard colour options, there will be a limited edition model coming later in the year thank to a collaboration with Kygo, a Norwegian DJ and owner of a lifestyle brand. All Falster 3 watches will include an exclusive watch face from the brand.

The Skagen Falster 3 is available now in the United States, and will be making its way to stores worldwide soon. Local pricing is yet to be confirmed, but it’ll probably be about $500.
