    I’m writing this review after 1 week of usage. Android wearOS is smooth. You can install Apps from PlayStore directly on watch through wifi. It comes with 1 GB RAM and 8 Gigs of memory so you can download or stream music on the go through Google Play Music or Spotify. Google Pay does not work in India through watch.
    AOD (always on display) works great and helps in saving battery.
    You can use Google fit or strava or mapmywalk+ to track physical activity.
    Touch screen responsiveness is great.
    Google maps and Google Translate can be downloaded on watch.
    Battery life is 1 day with most features ON but you get 4 options also:
    Daily 1 day
    Extended 2 to 3 days
    Custom as per requirement
    Time only 1 week

    Initially, i thought battery life is less, but now I’m pretty satisfied with the performance and features.
    Giving 1 star less for the battery (which can be improved in the next version)

    This review is just for iPhone users. I use iPhone 7 and had an assumption that everything will work as expected but that isn’t the case. May be I did not do proper research before I bought this watch. However to ease out for iPhone users, I am letting my observation out. So people can know what they are going to get when they buy.

    Features as of now:
    1. Only notifies you that you got a message along with the sender’s name for apps such as Whatsapp, sms etc but you cannot reply or read the message from the watch.

    2. You will get notified on who is calling with the name and the number, you can either choose to attend or reject, however you cannot speak using the watch.

    Note: Just browsed the internet and came to know that the OTA update would hit us before the year end. This will enable us to make calls and attend the calls and speak using the watch. Until then we need to wait.

    For android they have all liberty to use and no restrictions.

    Now coming to the look of the watch and performance.

    1. Watch looks stylish and cool.
    2. Navigation is smooth and easy.
    3. Notifications hit the phone without any lag.

    Rest I will update once I start using. This is my first day. I will rate 5 stars once the proper update is pushed.

    So as I mentioned before OTA update got pushed two weeks back. Now I am able to take calls and make calls using my watch.

    Speaker is audible and mic is also good while I used my watch.

    However, you need use Google fit app for fitness tracking as Apple Health app will not work well with this watch.

    I have changed my stars from 3 to 5. Fossil did what they committed😊

    This smartwatch is awesome. I’ve only had it for 2 days now and it has by far exceeded my expectations. It is really fast. Battery life is perfect for my life style. I can’t find a fault in this watch. It is perfect in my opinion. If you are debating on this watch and the ticwatch pro, definitely go with this one. The ticwatch is slow, buggy and laggy. I had it for a week and it was miserable. The fossil gen 5 watch might be extra money but it is more then worth it. The Apple watch finally has a worthy competitor. Very well done fossil! You did a fantastic job with this watch. Keep up the amazing work!!

    Well, to start with I just moved over from the iOS ecosystem to Android world, and love my new, shiny Samsung Galaxy Note 10. So, this Fossil Gen 5 release date was Godsend to coincide with my decision to switch to Android and Note 10 release as my old Apple Watch won’t work with my new Android phone.

    Absolutely floored by the slim design of Fossil Watch, how easily it connected with my Note 10. Aesthetics wise I like it more than my Apple Watch; even got praises on how well it looks.

    And the fascination just stopped there. I wish the screen could be more brighter. I have set the brightness at 5 (maximum) and I still thinks it’s not bright enough. And the battery life. Within just 6 hours of use, my watch came down from 100% to 24%! Well, the watch boasts of “Extended” and “Time Only” modes in addition to the “Daily” mode (with all the smart features enabled). I looked at the “Extended” mode setting to find out that all the features are set to OFF in the watch except you can hit the crown to wake up your watch, notifications and vibrations are On, and the Bluetooth is available from 6 AM – 10 PM only. All the cool options, such as Speaker, WiFi, Touch-to-wake, Tilt-to-Wake, NFC, OK Google detect options are disabled.

    Come on; I bought a smart watch for a reason. Otherwise, $295 would have fetched me a very stunning and performant non-smart watch.

    Let’s not even imagine what the third, “Time Only”, option would turn my watch into. Perhaps, every time I needed to see time in my watch, I had to call Fossil customer care and then they would have either enabled the display for 10 seconds or just told me over the phone what I wanted to know from my watch!

    Perhaps, I am being harsh but I can’t help it when I am coming from a perfectly fine smartwatch (Apple Watch) that won’t work with Android phones, and you’re just left to this.

    Fossil, I urge you to work on the battery drainage and brightness things as the top-priority things to fix in this watch. Otherwise, you will just end up with customers like me who are not all happy with this purchase. I won’t recommend this watch, at least not until Fossil fixed the battery issue at the minimum!

    I have used gen 3 smartwatch and i have also used gen 5 smartwatch
    • G pay doesn’t work and gets disappeared after update it only works in 7 countries as of now.
    • whenever i recieve a call on watch the voice breaks almost every time. Voice is not clear
    • google assistent does not give messages in voice and don’t respond to ok google after turning it on in setting.
    • os wear play store sucks and thier are very less useful applications. It has very less content
    • You can not download any songs but after using play app of google you can listen to limited songs and if you want to download it than pay for premium.


    • charges really fast almost within one hour and lasts for a day. For continuous use it will last around 3-4 hours.
    • Nice design and good finish. Speaker has a decent voice.

    Giving it one star because it’s not worth paying 23k

    Quick summary: 4.7 stars, for great features and operation, at the cost of battery life (fixable)
    I’ve been waiting for years to upgrade my LG Urbane. I knew that watches with the latest Qualcomm processor were coming, and was patiently holding out for them. Finally, they are here!

    This watch is almost perfect. It has all the features I had been hoping for – smooth operation, great screen with auto brightness, impressive waterproofing, and NFC payments. I haven’t tested the waterproofing, but the rest of those items deliver as promised. I am especially enjoying the NFC payments! The auto-brightness works well, with the sunlight booster making it easy to use in bright, direct sunlight.

    It has a speaker, but I usually disable sound on the watch because that’s part of the reason why I wear it – discreet notifications. But it’s there if and when you want it. You can even take phone call audio on the watch, though I haven’t tested that yet. I’m not sure if the watch microphone works with phone calls, but if the watch and phone mic are both on then things might get a little weird for the other person.

    It has the usual Google Fit features, and has the ability to monitor your heartbeat all day in the background. I thought that was a neat feature, until I found out what it did to my battery life. I don’t think the watch could survive for 12 hours with this enabled. Fortunately, it’s not a must-have feature for me, so I disabled it and just take my heart rate specifically when I want it.

    That brings me to the only downside of this watch. The battery has a hard time keeping up with all the cool stuff the watch can do. Fortunately, you can do something about that. If you’re like me, you can go through all the settings and disable things you don’t need or care about, like background heart monitoring, tilt-to-wake and “OK Google” listening. Those things have extended the battery life to a point where it can make it through a full day with about 1/4 life left when I go to bed.

    If you don’t want to turn off features individually, there are a few battery saver modes that should work for you. I feel like they disable a little too much for daily use, but they would be great for short trips without a charger.

    The watch also has quick charging, so if you’re running low and you have your charger handy it won’t take long to get it charged up. I heard it takes an hour to go from zero to full, but I haven’t tested this.

    Physically, the watch is noticeably lighter than my Urbane, making it more comfortable to wear. I found the black silicone version to be the most comfortable, but I purchased the stainless steel version for the looks. Bands are 22mm and easily changeable, especially if you stay with Fossil brand.

    I like the three side buttons a lot! The middle one performs the standard Wear OS functions, but it has a rotating crown that scrolls the screen up and down. I didn’t know this, and was happily surprised when I figured it out! The other two buttons are assignable to whichever apps you want, another great feature. I assigned Google Pay to the top and Settings to the bottom.

    Overall, this is the watch I was waiting for, and I bought one a few days after it was released. I highly recommend it if you’re in the market, as there’s nothing better out there in the Android Wear space.

    Good voice call quality, yet to know whether it can be corrected.. Otherwise gd features
    Can be connected to WiFi
    U can customize watch faces along with synchronization of FB n Insta
    Some disparity in steps walked n calories used

  8. Sharat Chandra bolusani

    The watch is amazing! But the only downfall is the speaker, the speaker cracks when I take calls on the watch and the other person is barely audible. Is there a fix? Cause this is the only thing that’s
    Extremely bad about it
