So this watch has quite a lot to offer and today i will show you the top 10 things to know about the foster gen 6.. Hey. My name is leonard youre, watching a product, reviewer and thats me now. First up the price right now you can get this watch for around 300 bucks on the fossil web store, so its in the same price range as some of the galaxy 4 models. Unlike with the first generation 5 or the generation 5e, we do not have another model available for the 6th generation yet, but i hope we get to see that in the soon feature and thats about it for the price so lets head to some features. Now lets start with the new spo2 tracker this watch has and this one tracks your blood oxygen level all day and, unlike with other smart watches, you get to see your history of your average value for different time spans and all of that right on your watch. If we swipe to the right, we get to see our sleep tracker, which not only tracks your sleep duration for the last night, but also your light and deep sleep as well as your wake time for the last week and month. The fossil gen 6 also has a weather widget, which shows you the weather. For today we have an alarm stopwatch and a timer and a flashlight, so you can find your way around to the toilet at night without tripping.
Now, as long as your smartwatch is connected to your smartphone, you can download all kinds of apps right to your watch from the google play store. You have a few predefined filters already, so you can look quickly for apps that you already have with smartphone apps for streaming audio workout tracking apps, but you can also look for apps by typing the name of it in the searching bar. I dont think i have to mention that we have a heart rate tracker on here as well that tracks your heart rate, 24 7, and we have a breathing session. So you find your inner peace. This session can be between 1 and 10 minutes long. This smartwatch has quite a few watch faces to choose from just press down on the main watch face for 2 seconds, and you can choose between simple analog watch faces digital ones or sporty ones, which shows you. A lot of metrics most watch faces are even customizable to a certain degree. Depending on the watch faces. You can change up different things on some. You can only change the font and on some basically all of the metrics that are displayed like the heart rate battery life or google pay. And yes, we get nfc payment on this watch as well for contactless payment wherever you go now after some sport modes and lighter gen, 5 gen 6 has a whole bunch of different sport modes to choose from in actuality.
We get right around 100 dozen sport modes. So we get the usual stuff like walking, running and hiking and cycling, but we also get a big variety of different winter and water sports hit training dancing or boxing workouts. I guess we get about everything, but a real swimming mode after acquiring the gps, which only takes a few seconds. The workout will start after a three second countdown, for example, on a running workout. You then get to see your workout time pace your heart rate and your burn calories, and you can control your music during your workout as well right on your wrist and after finishing your workout, you get to see a small summary of your workout stats. What might be important to some of you is the accuracy of the health and the gps tracking and right up front. I got ta tell you that the gps on this watch is not that reliable for some parts it works just fine, but sometimes its all over the place, but at least you roughly get to see where you went as for the step counting. The gen 6 works. Just fine, in my opinion, as well as for the sleep tracking, so a big quick thumb up for that one for the heart rate. I compared the gen 6 with the soon to peak 9, which always was pretty accurate in all of my testings. Now, on the heart rate, it was like 78 beats lower than it should be, and it was off by like 7 to 10 on the mileage.
Well, not that big of a difference but still worth mentioning. As for the battery life, we get one whole day if we have the hours and display mode turned on, as well as the all day, heart rate, monitoring and the spo2 reading. But since we have three different battery modes, we can expand that battery life to a few days. If we turn on the extended battery mode and even longer, if we turn on the time only mode, even though it turns off all of the fun features now, the gen 6 also has a cool small feature that if the battery life drops below 10, it turns Automatically into the extended mode – and it only takes 30 minutes to charge it up to 80 – pretty useful right now, if you get that far into the video, please smash the like button and subscribe to my channel. If youre new, also dont forget to click the notification bell to never miss out on any new content and now back to the video, the sixth generation of the fossil brand comes with a google voice assistant. If you swipe to the right and press the mic, icon, long, press, the middle button or just say, hi, google, you can activate it. It gets worse pretty fast, and even though, if you have background noises, it understands what youre saying quite well now, unlike many of you, probably think you cannot only do search requests, but you can also set a timer start.
A workout call your friends and basically you will find a whole list of voice commands in the wearer s app up to the next feature, which is the armrest calls. So, with the gen 6, you can call your friends and family right from your wrist. As long as you have your phone connected to it, you can either talk to them through your earbuds or use to build your mind and speaker for the conversation. Now you can either choose one of your contacts from the contact list or just dial the number yourself now. This is one problem, which is that you look pretty goofy if you talk to your wrist, usually with most mob watches. If you want to control your music with your watch, the watch always have to be connected to your smartphone in some kind of way, but with the box gen 6.
