It comes with a round 1.3 inch AMOLED Display Screen and the HR Black Silicone looks stylish and impressive.

Features


Fossil’s latest Gen 5 Smartwatch like the previous watches, comes with SnapDragon Wear 3100 chip, but performs a lot better than the previous variants.

You get all the notifications on your wrist and can track your exercise sessions with Google Fit or Nike Run applications. Battery life of the smartwatch is also very impressive and can run for a complete whole day, approx. 20 hours. With 1 GB RAM and astounding battery life, you can easily do anything with a Smart Watch like this on your wrist. The Smart Watch is more compatible and easy to use with an Android phone because of the Google Wear OS, but will not disappoint you if you are using it with IOS.

There is also a nice small speaker in the watch which can be used for Google Assistant only. Listening to songs on it would not be a good idea. Some more interesting features in this smart watch are, heart rate sensor to track all your walk, exercise or even sleeping hours, Calendar to schedule your meetings, get all the mails, texts or play music for your arm. You can easily shift from left to right, landing on Google Fit, weather update or other Tiles, as suggested by the company. The User interface is the best in its segment and you can smoothly switch from one screen to another.

Final Opinion


Fossil Gen 5 SmartWatch is very elegant, graceful and is an absolute value for money deal if you are looking for the latest Smart Watch at a reasonable price of Rs.22,995. This SmartWatch has everything that it takes to be the modern and the latest Smartwatch. You can easily customise the watch as per your needs to flaunt as you want when you wear it. The company should have worked a little on the battery life and had given a little long lasting battery, nut nonetheless, this is the most coolest and Smartest Watch currently in the market.
