Gen 5 is the most recent release from Fossil, which the company claims that it solves all the existing problems of modern-day smartwatches. Thus, it should be considered as a nearly flawless smartwatch and equally one of the most complete models on the market. So let’s find out whether or not this bold claim is true.
Starting off with the design and physical aspect, the Fossil Gen 5 features a well-made 44mm stainless-steel body, with a beautiful AMOLED display, 3 buttons on the right side of the watch, and a microphone for Google assistant services.
As for the left side, it has a speaker that serves as an audio output. Contrary to other smartwatches, the Gen 5 features a relatively small heart rate monitor that doesn’t stick out a ton.
The watch is also waterproof and comes with standard silicone straps. Overall, we can say that its durable build and stylish design suits both hardcore athletes and fashion enthusiasts.
Specs-wise, the Fossil Gen 5 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 8 GB of internal storage, and 1 GB of RAM.
Moving on to the software, this smartwatch runs on wear OS and has all the necessary fitness trackers and apps that are required in a modern-day smartwatch. For instance, It has an alarm clock, stopwatch, agenda, health monitors, Google fit, a weather app, and plenty more.
Furthermore, Gen 5 has several battery modes to minimize energy consumption and allow the watch to last longer. Each mode disables a certain functionality on the watch, and it can also be customized according to your preference.
Seemingly, the Gen 5’s Wear OS app isn’t quite reliable in terms of connectivity. In addition to that, it lacks some of the health apps found in other smartwatches, such as a sleep tracker.
To conclude, even with some minor inconveniences, The Fossil Gen 5 has won us over with its sleek design, solid construction, decent battery, and top of the line hardware.
