Fossil Group offers far and away the most diverse portfolio of smartwatches running Google Wear OS, and the newest installment is finally here. The Fossil Generation 5 seems likely to serve as the jumping-off point for most of the new Wear OS watches we’ll see from Fossil this year, with a resurrected speaker/mic pair and four new battery modes to try solving the Gen 4’s biggest pain points. I’ve spent the past four days giving it a trial run, so join me for the Fossil Gen 5 Hands-On!

Once final software is provided, a full review (either standalone or as part of a wearable compilation video) will follow.
