Fossil Smartwatch Gen 5 Complete Walkthrough: New Flagship WearOS Watch?
Fossil sent me their new Fossil Smartwatch Gen 5 to test out and so since I had it for a bit, I figured I’d try and do a complete walkthrough on it and go through every possible feature I could so you guys are better prepared should you be in the market to buy one.
HERE IS THE BEST PRICE I COULD FIND ON THE FOSSIL SMARTWATCH GEN 5:

Which texting apps can we use?
Literally just bought the gen 4 and I love it. I dont tend to buy the latest version of anything so I'm kinda glad they are releasing a newer one this soon. Now I dont feel like as much of a hipster lol
What are you talking about the gen 4 not having a speaker I had a gen 1 gen 2 and 3 and they all had speakers so why wouldn't the 4 have on??
I always end up buying the Fossil smartwatches and end up returning it. The reason for this is the battery life. I can never squeeze a full day out of it with no restrictions. The Gen 4 was beautiful and I loved it's design compared to all my watches but the battery life was no good, specially the days I would work out. The only watch I always return to is the Huawei Watch 2 classic. I don't know how this old watch last me 2 days with everything on but I love it and it's mainly because of the battery life.
is this better then the Hr variant ? the only difference i can tell is this atm value
What's the weight of the watch? It's frustratingly not listed on the website
Thanks for the update. Can you show the GPS working, ie using the GNSS app to show the TTFF Time To First Fix
Had to send in my Fossil Sport yesterday due to the charging rings coming off after only owning it for 31 days. Looking forward to replacing it with a Carlyle. Used an Apple Watch/Fitbit and Pebble for years, this looks promising.
I would really appreciate it if you could customize the battery saving modes and for example turn off all the features which I wouldn't use anyway
Do NOT go swimming wearing this.
Can i type on the watch? If i receive a text msg?
this is my dream vsco gil smart watch
New Watch Here I Come
I had a few questions does it pair with Apples Bluetooth headphones and lastly does it receive notifications from Apples messenger ecosystem. Thanks for the review and any possible insights also looking forward to a thorough review when the software goes GM
What about battery life he said 2 weeks its incredible?
How long before they come to big department stores?? Dillards?
Can we recieve the calls ?
Nice one. I hope they push those battery saver modes onto the previous gen devices. My Gen 3 better life is pretty disappointing.
Seems like smart watch season is in session.
what Bluetooth audio protocol does it have?
Where is the Galaxy Watch active 2 impressions vid ??
Samsung Watch is still king
Is the speaker any better than the Gen 3 Explorist?
Hey, thanks for bringing us this. I’ve been looking forward to more info on this watch. Great job and thanks much. ????
Finally, an Android wear watch since the Huawei Watch 1 Classic that ticks practically every box without compromise it seems. I can't wait to get this guy for my channel. Ufff this puts a smile on my face.
Would I be able to access Google photos on this watch?
Can you control the settings of your phone from the watch? Like wifi, flashlight?
I'm thankful for how thorough your walk through is at giving as much info as possible! Great video.
I get so annoyed that these companies keep throwing out watches with crap battery life. What the hell is 310 MA gonna do for me? I want a battery that can last me more than 24hrs. Is that so much to ask for? I would be perfectly happy with 2 days without going into some power saving mode.
Can you do in depth review for this watch with the iphone
Is there sleep tracking as on the fossil website they have a Sleep Tracking icon ?
Great video but, You say 44mm is a middle of the road size?? Really, 42 is middle of the road size, 44mm large, 40mm small.
Wow 5th generation & still so thick at 12mm, below 11mm is needed in 2019 please. Also why the tick black bezels, I see every promotional photo or video has a black watch face so I guess they are trying to hide this fact.
Does this allow me to listen to Spotify playlists without carrying my phone with me?
