  • Great for Wear OS Tracking & Connectivity
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Elisa - December 11, 2020

    I've been a Fossil watch fan for years, so I was thrilled to see their Wear OS line. Many of the programs I use for tracking health and fitness exist in Wear OS, and other alternatives that have connectivity - but aren't authorized directly from Google - all had limitations. After a few weeks of use on this watch, I can't imagine going back to anything else. There are a lot of comments about battery life here, but you essentially are wearing a smartphone on your wrist; so I figure I'll need to charge it as often as I charge my phone. With regular use, it goes from 100% to about 30-40% for me daily, and I just place it on my desk to charge as I sit down to work each morning. It fully charges in less than 30 minutes!

  • Good product, but alarm needs updating
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Teacher - August 9, 2021

    Overall good product, but comes without instructions. You can not remove the snooze option from alarms, and on such a small screen, it's easy to hit snooze instead of off. Also, while you can choose an alarm sound, you can only use one, so if you have multiple alarms that need different alarm sounds, that function is not available. Teachers, in particular, need these functions.

  • Keeps rebooting and screen is slow.
    Reviewed by NC - July 10, 2021

    Broke my heart but after 3 months the Fossil Gen 5E would keep rebooting and the screen was unresponsive. Great looking watch and I loved it, got lots of compliments. I sent it off to Texas for repair $14.95 with ins + trac. See what else it will cost me :(, my first smartwatch and thinking why did I do that I should of just kept to my collection.

  • One of the bests smartwatch option
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Rashed - May 20, 2021

    Defiantly one of the best option to buy smartwatch for the beginners. With Google watch OS it aquires universal compatibility. Very easy to navigate and with interchangable straps covers both sporty and executive looks. Comes with good packaging. Best Buy delivery service was excellent !! Recommended with a 5 star review !!!!

  • iPhone users, do your homework and you'll love it!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Ed - August 15, 2021

    Take the time to read the comments in the favorable reviews. If you do, it'll teach you how to overcome any issues related to connectivity and battery life. If you need your iPhone to work through the smart watch, you'll be disappointed. This isn't something I use. Most other features work really well. Can't beat the price!
