5 reviews for Fossil Men’s Gen 6 Touchscreen Smartwatch with Speaker, Heart Rate, Blood Oxygen, GPS, Contactless Payments and Smartphone Notifications

  1. Charles Hogg

    The message is simple. All I wanted—all I’ve wanted for years—is a watch as good as the Fossil Gen 5, but with a battery that doesn’t suck. Well, this watch is as good as the Fossil Gen 5, and its battery doesn’t suck.

    I’ve been using Wear OS watches since 2014, back when it was called “Android Wear”. In that time, I’ve come to prefer Fossil watches, since they provide the basic smartwatch features I care about (handling notifications; counting steps; NFC payment; checking weather; etc.), but look like *actual watches*. Attractive, without sticking out too much—just right! The Fossil Gen 5 was particularly nice. With one hardware button mapped to flashlight (super handy—try it!) and the other mapped to Google Pay, it fit my needs perfectly.

    Except… the battery. Every day, it would limp along until hitting one of the “extended battery” modes sometime mid-evening. A few times a month, it’d end up in time-only mode: oof. And poker night? Forget it: dead before I head home. “All day battery”… well, *kinda*. Why couldn’t I have a watch as good in the evening as the Gen 5 was in the morning?

    Enter the Gen 6. The Snapdragon Wear 4100+ sets it up for significantly improved battery life. All they had to do was *deliver*, without losing any of the good points of the Gen 5. And they did! I haven’t given the battery a second thought since I got the watch a week ago. Every day, it ends with 40-50%, or more. And this is with the always-on display, which I consider essential for anything that claims to be a “watch”. (I’m using the Classic watch face, FWIW.)

    What’s more, it throws in an SpO2 sensor for good measure. The reading takes a lot longer than a dedicated SpO2, but it’s nice to know I’ll always have it in a pinch.

    Much has been made about the expected long delay for Wear OS3. This doesn’t bother me, since I’ll be spending those months with, essentially, a Gen 5 with SpO2, minus the battery anxiety.

    It wasn’t *all* roses. I did find the setup procedure a bit clunky. It takes a good while to finish downloading all the apps and getting everything the way I want it.

    Oh, and a caveat: that setup procedure seems to use a _lot_ of battery. Don’t judge the battery life on your first day experience—it’s not representative!

    Overall, if you want an attractive, performant smartwatch, with comfortably all-day battery life, this could be for you.

    So far I am impressed. The 4100+ is a noticeable upgrade with app responsiveness and snappiness. The battery life is biggest difference though. I have my battery preference set with Bluetooth, gps, touch to wake, and tilt to wake on: And with a lot of use I still have 70% battery after 4 1/2 hours. This watch is great and will only get better when Wear OS 3 drops early next year.

    ***First week of use: So far, still very happy. Battery lasted 26 hours and just hit 10%. A great improvement from the Gen 5.

    I must be the odd man out here, but I love my Gen 6. I bought it to replace a Fossil Hybrid HR Collider. I had needed to contact Fossil support a few times for that one and it was always one of the best customer service experiences I have ever had, so I stuck with them for the “full smart watch”.
    OK. To go over some of the points other reviewers made. The app that gives you 10 watch face slots and wants you to upgrade to premium for 20 is Facer. That is just a Wear OS app from the Play Store, so yeah, they want to make money. This might also be talking about the actual “Fossil” app, that offers 10 preset themes. There are tons of free ones you can use though. If you look in the actual Wear OS app, there are maybe 20 different watch faces that you can switch to at any time, all designed by Fossil, for free.
    As far as battery, I am definitely getting well more than 7 hours like the other review said. I keep NFC turned off, and only ever notice a heavy battery drain during overnights. If I charge it before I go to sleep, I will have maybe 80% battery in the morning if I turn off wifi and BT. If I leave them on, it drops to maybe 65%. This seems rather excessive for just sleep tracking overnight with DND turned on. But if I am able to make it the rest of the day on that charge with room to spare, so it still lasts the full day. I am sure they will fix this heavy overnight battery drain soon, and that’s my only complaint.

    Overall, the minor glitch with wifi causing a little battery drain isn’t worth taking any stars away from this amazing beautiful watch.

    *UPDATE* – The large overnight battery drain ended up being from sleep tracking in the “sleep as Android” app. If you skip using this, you still have sleep tracking via Google Fit and also the Fossil Wellness app. I have been doing this, leaving everything except NFC on all the time, and lose maybe 15 – 20% overnight, depending on how long I sleep.

    UPDATE: Refunded because of its many bugs and terrible battery life.

    bought this to replace my galaxy watch and damn its got so many issues i thought would have been worked out by now by watch devs let alone fossil brand.
    issues so far-
    1.battery life, thing don’t last the day, like 7 hours with nfc turned off and tacking turned off.

    2.adjusting the watch band takes tools i don’t have so good thing i ordered other watch bands at purchase.

    3.gotta download apps to change watch faces and they want you to pay for more or most apps, max of 10 i think before you have to purchase a premium account to hold up to 20…wtf galaxy smoked them on this part the most.

    4.ignoring the very long setup and updates that seemed to have made the watch worse somehow the interface is extremely bad and poorly designed, getting around and setting things up is by far 200x worse then the galaxy watch i had.

    The good.
    1. the watch is made well with good metals and feels nice and looks nice but only time will tell how it holds up……thats it…nothing else is good about this watch.
