The Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch may be the best smartwatch on the market. Thanks to their notorious aesthetics, new adjustable battery control software, watch category presets, and impressive engineering, this watch turns heads and keeps you going for days at a time. In this video, I review this watch and test the limits of these claims. Is this the smartwatch for you? Is the fifth generation fossil smartwatch the best in the game? Watch and we will find out together.

Some added review notes:
Things I like about the watch –
* Battery controls (time only, extended, custom, and daily modes allow for a smartwatch that can adapt to my needs and last longer)
* Loud speaker on board for easy hearing in any setting
* Google Assistant
* Clear microphone
* Wifi, GPS, NFC, and BT (for connecting to your phone or to bluetooth earbuds)
* 8GB Storage + 1GB RAM
* Fossil categories
* Great user interface (easy to use and very intuitive)
* Customizable mechanical buttons
* Great aesthetics and feel on the wrist
* Nice band selection
* Charger orientation does not matter
* Excellent button feel
* 3 buttons is better than 1 for smartwatches since the screen is so small
Things I would like to see improved
* More watch tiles
* Better screen to bezel ratio (already pretty good though)
* Quicker lift to wake response
* Better apps (not Fossil’s or Google’s fault really, just something I would like)
* WearOS and Fossil apps on phone: I wish I could do more customization from my phone rather than just from the watch settings. The watch screen is small and my phone is large. I like being able to adjust things from my phone.
