Diesel's next smartwatch is the largest Wear OS smartwatch that can buy money. The watch itself is large, but the screen is not that huge at 1.39 centimeters, which raises the question: why is the new watch called the Diesel On Full Guard 2.5 if there has not been Full Guard 2?
The body of the new watch is on a huge 56 mm wide. The Samsung Galaxy Watch comes in two sizes with the largest with a 46 mm body, while the largest Apple Watch 3 is only 42 mm (measured at height, so the width is even smaller).
We've seen smartwatches of this size before, like the Casio Pro Trek brands – including the new Pro Trek WSD F30 – but this is the biggest one we've ever seen wearing a Wear OS watch. This is also the watch that TechRadar confirmed earlier that it existed in mid-July.
Apart from the size, the watch looks like the previous generation and we expect it to come with the new updated appearance of Wear OS that was announced earlier today.
All the technology on the Diesel On Full Guard makes a return, but extra features have been added, such as NFC, so you can use Google Pay directly from your wrist.
There is a heart rate monitor on the watch – something that was missing in the previous gene – as well as GPS functions, so you can monitor your location while exercising.
Diesel also claims that the Full Guard 2.5 will last two days from one charge, which is easy to do given the enormous dimensions of this watch, because it offers a lot of space to pack in a large battery cell.
One thing to note is how Diesel still has to share the official internal specifications for the Full Guard 2.5. Normally we would expect it to run a Snapdragon Wear 2100, but the fact that the company has kept us up to now and there is a new Qualcomm chipset around the corner, we expect it might contain an improved technology.
Prices have yet to be confirmed and we only know that the release date is somewhere in October. We expect to try this out in the next few days to give you our first impressions about this gigantic Wear OS watch.
