Fossil Gen 6 review: Fighting with one hand behind its back


Fossil released its next-gen wearable with last-gen software. Was that the right move? Find out in this Fossil Gen 6 review.

Respectable design

Fossil is clearly hoping to appeal to a wide audience of potential buyers with the Gen 6. The company took somewhat of a middle-of-the-road approach to drafting this wearable and it straddles the line between traditional smartwatch behaviors and...

Fossil Gen 6 Review


The Fossil Gen 6 is a next-generation smartwatch that failed to impress us overall. It uses a crown, which improves navigating the watch's smart functions...

Crown scroll, charges quickly, user-friendly "always on" screen

Poor value, subpar battery life

The Fossil Gen 6 is a next-generation smartwatch that failed to impress us overall. It uses a crown, which improves navigating the watch's smart functions and features, but this does not work with every screen. It also lacks availability and support...

Fossil Gen 6 review: I still don't want to wear this OS


Fossil improved just about every nagging hardware issue with the Gen 6, crafting a beautiful smartwatch with great battery life. Wear OS 2 still holds the hardware back, though, and that makes it more difficult to appreciate the improvements Fossil has...

Full-color AOD screen ; New health sensors make a big difference ; Sleep tracking works perfectly ; Excellent battery life ; Super-fast charging

The onboarding process is very bad ; Lacks a proper companion app ; Wear OS 2 holds the hardware back ; Performance is hit or miss ; Crown gets in the way when working out

Fossil Gen 6 is a smartwatch with lots of unrealized potential. Solid hardware packs great performance, battery life, reliable health metrics, and ultra-fast charging speed. It's just a shame that Wear OS 2 holds it back so much.

Fossil Gen 6 Review | Trusted Reviews


Fossil's Snapdragon Wear 4100+-powered smartwatch is finally here – but without Wear OS 3 at launch, is it worth buying?

Wear 4100+ is exactly what Wear OS needs ; Varied options to suit different styles ; Speedy GPS tracking

No Wear OS 3 at launch ; Minor upgrade over the Gen 5 ; Fossil’s fitness tracking is a letdown ; Dull array of watch faces included

With Wear OS 3 missing at launch and only the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ to write home about, the Fossil Gen 6 simply isn’t the upgrade I was anticipating. Nevertheless, the watch remains a capable device with a sleek design, a fast processor and impressive...
