CES 2022 is in full swing and Razer has announced its collaboration with the American lifestyle company Fossil, to bring out the Razer x Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch. The Green tech giant is further expanding its brand to envelop your whole ecosystem.

Proving that Razer and Fossil have come together to provide gamers with a tool to help their well-being.
