Watches from Diesel follow a certain design language that features huge bezels, aggressive looks, and bigger cases. Their newest smartwatch, the Diesel On Full Guard 2.5, maintains a similar style along with the latest version of Google’s WearOS on board.
It’s quite seldom that you find a smart wearable that flaunts a rugged appearance. It comes in four variants and all of them look fashionable and fantastic. Each one comes with a different watch strap—two of those sport a silicone band, another comes with a leather strap, and the last one with a metal wristband. It’s not really a big deal which one you go for since the straps are user-replaceable with any compatible options.
Its matte aluminum and stainless steel case measure 47 mm in diameter and 13 mm thick. It houses a 1.39-inch touchscreen, GPS, an NFC chip for payments, an optical heart rate sensor, and a 300mAh battery. It’s also ready to face any adventure with its durable construction and a 5 ATM water resistance.
We learned that it will still rely on the older Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset paired with 512MB of RAM. Its performance might eventually lag behind newer models that are projected to use a newer processor from Qualcomm.
Moving on the good stuff, similar to the unique controls on the Samsung Galaxy Watch, the Diesel smartwatch allows you to scroll through the WearOS menu using the crown. The Diesel On Full Guard 2.5 is expected to launch later this year and carry an estimated $325 price tag.
