Fossil's latest stylish smartwatches can last for days
Though, by the end it’s more “watch” than “smart”

So crippling the device makes the battery last for 2 days, got it.
try out the Samsung Galaxy watch, consistently get 4 to 5 days battery with every single option turned on
My S3 Frontier already lasts 3-4 days if I don't charge it. And I basically have just started charging it when I shower in the morning and that's enough to keep it running every day.
Soon in my hand babee ?
What's kind of deceiving to me is that Fossil doesn't provide the battery size info anywhere. How many mah?

Gen 5 but still with 1 – 2 days battery. I've sold my android wear watch, got a mi band 4 and never go back. Wear OS drains too much battery.
This guy looks like he is tired of smartwatches and tired of making videos about them.
All can be understood, of course.
But if he is tired of this, why not find someone who isn't?
Someone who loves smartwatchs, and have real passion for them?
My amazfit Bip with transrflective display (screen never turns off) 100+ notifications a day and i wear it all the time.. 22 days in and im still on 37% haha
My phone has smaller bezels than that..
Fossil's Hybrid watches last a long time. I just wish they had a seconds hand.
The screen is what kills batteries so fast in all these smartwatches.
why doesn't the Gen 5 watch have Wifi?
Happy With My Gear S3 Frontier.?
I have a Gen 4 and it lasts about 12 – 18hrs with AOD and tilt to wake up. If I switch off the AOD, I can get solid 18hrs. The pogo pin charger ensures watch goes 0% to 90% in an hour. My only complaint was you can't take calls with the Gen 4. If there's like a Black Friday discount I might go for the Gen 5. Also have Galaxy Watch 42mm. Android Wear for me is better than Tizen. Not by much though
They last for days… And then they disintegrate?
Pebble > All other smartwatches
I hate how none of these new watches have a screen that goes all the way to the metal frame like the original moto 360
Please, review more hybrid watches! They are more functional and really you don't have to worry about battery life
This watch will be reasonable for you maybe $ 295 expensive in other countries example India Saudi Arabia that cost around India rs 25000 around Saudi Arabia sr 1200 so this is too expensive watches for this countries except in US & Europe & UK this country's maybe they are cheaper for them another countries like Asia Africa ext
Smart fast should be in the price of $ 50 to $ 100 this is cheaper for the people in in these countries Asia & Africa
my Samsung watch s3 lasts 3 days and apparently, the new one lasts longer, not sure what watch lasts only 1 day
I just want an always on display and notifications is that too much to ask
No. What you mean is "there's a lot of things holding non-Apple smartwatches back from becoming ubiquitous must have accessories". Apple isn't being held back by stagnant Wear OS, or lesser proprietary OSs with no app ecosystems. Apple isn't being held back by old crappy snapdragon processors.
Get rid of the charging pins!
laughs in Galaxy g4 and Huawei watch gt
my pebble lasts over a week and takes 15 mins to change to full…you move android….
Transition sounds are a bit annoying.
Stupid the battery modes should have an automatic so as your batter gets lower below 30% the battery settings change.
I've never understood the appeal of smart watches.
The sound effects are so annoying. WTF?!
Or you can wear a Charge 3 for less than half the price, and triple to quadruple the battery life.
If you turn it off, the battery will effing last forever
Pogo pin charging again?
Nice video but the little noise when you transition between scenes is not pleasant on the ear .. maybe it's just me
I love wear os watch and Amazfit watches
The title HmMmmmm
My samsung galaxy watch could already last easily for about 4-5 days or so with casual use on bluetooth
Nice Christmas gifts ideas ?
Those watches look clean af…..I'LL TAKE YOUR ENTIRE STOCK!!
Honestly I never understood the appeal of smart watches, most of them just look extremely tacky and cheap.
