Wear OS powered Diesel Full Guard 2.5 smartwatch is coming with a huge 56mm case
Diesel announced today, a sequel to its On Full Guard smartwatch. Named Full Guard 2.5, this is a huge timepiece with a case weighing in at 47mm x 56mm. As a comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Watch largest model sports a 46mm case. The Full Guard 2.5 is 8mm larger than its predecessor, yet the screen is slightly smaller at 1.39-inches. The watch is available in four different styles: a gunmetal steel case with a brown strap, black steel case with a black silicone strap, gunmetal steel case on a three-link bracelet, and a steel case on a black leather strap.

The smartwatch is powered by a Snapdragon 2100 chipset and is equipped with 4GB of internal storage. Wear OS is pre-installed, which means that Google Assistant is on board. With NFC capabilities, Google Pay is supported. The Full Guard 2.5 will track your heart rate, has built-in GPS and with a 3ATM rating, it is protected from splashes (although Diesel says that you can swim with it on). The battery will last as long as two days between charges.

The Diesel Full Guard 2.5 smartwatch will be released in October. Pricing of the device will be announced at a future date, and the device will be available wherever Diesel products are sold.

Does it have a heart rate monitor?

For anyone who's interested in getting any of Diesel's smartwaches, keep in mind that it takes almost 4 hours to charge. It's annoyingly slow, and that's the only thing I hate about my watch.

That is BS on the 4 hours to charge it's 370 mha battery. I just got it a little while ago myself. I love it's awesome big display.

How long does it take to get fully charged with you? And adapter do you use for it? I tried Samsung's charger, Huawei's, even the iPhone's charger, and from 0 to 100 it never took less than 3 hrs.

Same here, I use an Aukey charger with quickcharging capability and never is it full within 3 hours. Same goes for my Armani connected so it might be a Fossil thing

That's so stupid, my 4 years old Tab S chrages faster than this, and it drives me crazy. My Zenwatch 3 on the other hand fully charges in about 30 minutes.

I know right, I have the ZW3 as well and it's so handy to have it charged this quickly. Really is a shame Asus stopped supporting them.

And if you ask me, it's still the best designed smartwatch to date imo, it's sporty, yet classy at the same time.

I absolutely agree. Although a rotating middle crown like the Diesel one would have made it a little bit better.

it is protected from splashes (although Diesel says that you can swim with it on). Can or can't? The section in parentheses seems redundant if it is can.

3ATM is listed as splash resistant, although Diesel says you can swim with it on. I hope that clarifies it for you. I would hesitate to swim with it personally. Regards, Alan

I haven't seen the 3ATM nomenclature before. Just IP ratings. I didn't realize there was another system.

For waterproofing, watches have been using ATM for their ratings. Fossil and their sub brands have been advertising 3 ATM for their new watches as swimmable, so I would take that as its safe to take swimming. Electronics using the IP scale with IPX7 meaning 3 feet of water for IPX8 as being what the manufacturer specify (ex. 6 ft of water for 60 minutes). The X is for dust ratings with 6 being fully sealed I have my Huawei Fit that I take snorkeling. It's rated at 5 ATM (50 meters) and it works fine diving down to 10-15 feet in the ocean. However, it doesn't have all the buttons that these smart watches have.

I always knew the IP ratings, IPXY with X being dust and y being water. I just had never experienced these other ratings in terms of consumer electronics. Then again, I am generally not the type to wear a watch. I own the og Huawei watch, but even that I rarely wear.

According to Garmin that is the true meaning of 3 ATM (atmospheres) or 30 meter column of water. 3 ATM Withstands pressures equivalent to a depth of 30 meters

Does phonearena have an article about the "best" smart watches? Maybe with categories of which are smaller, budget models, etc.

There isn't many "smart watches" out there to choose.. Just choose the one with design that you like, and have all features you need.. If PA make article about it. it will be like this.. Best small : Apple watch series 3 38mm Best budget : Apple watch series 1 Best overall : Apple watch 4 (upcoming)
