Fossil Gen 5 review: Style overcomes the flaws of Wear OS

 

Google's Wear OS watches have a hard time distinguishing themselves. Some poke their head above the status quo with value, looks, or performance. In the case of the Fossil Gen 5, it's the looks and smooth performance. I still can't help but feel that...

Sleek looks ; Solid construction ; Customizable battery modes ; Snappy, smooth performance ; Day-long battery

Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch

 

The Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch features an attractive design and smooth performance, but its size isn't suitable for all wrists.

Sleek, durable design. Built-in speaker.

Too big for small wrists. Pricey for what you get. No sleep tracking.

The $295 Gen 5 Fossil Smartwatch is one of the better Wear OS devices on the market, but that isn't saying much these days. iPhone users should consider the $399 Apple Watch Series 5, which offers better fitness features and a significantly more...

The Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch is the best Wear OS watch you can buy

 

The Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch is the best Wear OS watch you can buy. It delivers in nearly every area — performance, aesthetics, and customizability. I just wish the watch lasted longer on a charge without turning sensors on and off, though that seems...

Crisp, bright display ; Plenty of great watch faces preinstalled ; Useful custom battery modes ; GPS, NFC, and heart rate sensor ; Accurate fitness tracking ; Built-in speaker is very useful

So-so battery, but better than average

Fossil Gen 5 Review: The best Wear OS has to offer probably isn’t enough [Video]

 

The biggest name in Wear OS is Fossil , and the company isn't showing any signs of slowing down with Google's platform, either. While Google basically ignores its existence, Fossil is pumping out hardware, and now making some modifications to the...

Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch review: That's more like it

 

Fossil's 5th generation watch is available in many designs (Julianna & Carlyle HR), but the important improvements are in performance & features.

Plenty of designs available ; Battery charging speed is quicker than before ; Heart-rate sensor equipped ; Easy to switch watch bands/straps

Julianna is a bit big for small wrists ; Wear OS still not the best smartwatch platform

The 5th generation watch solves many of the issues we had with previous years' devices: there's no smoother performance and added functionality like GPS and heart-rate monitoring. Plus, the battery isn't sluggishly slow to charge any more. That's a lot...

Fossil Gen 5 smartwatch review

 

Fossil has a solid reputation for its smartwatches, making it a reliable source for anyone contemplating a Wear OS timepiece. Its latest entry - the Fossil Gen 5 - is the best of the bunch. That doesn't mean that it's perfect, as it lacks a few finer...

Decent battery life Understated design Speedy to use

Speaker is subpar No ECG feature

The Fossil Gen 5 is one of the best Wear OS smartwatches out there at the moment. That doesn't mean it's flawless, but it offers a decent battery life and plenty of features that should keep Wear OS fans happy.
